Amenorrhea Test Panel - More Information
The amenorrhea test panel measures blood levels of markers that might help determine the cause of amenorrhea.
Amenorrhea is when a women at a reproductive age is not having a menstrual period. Amenorrhea is a normal process in women in specific stages of life such as pregnancy. However, a woman who is not in one of those stages of life and is not having regular bleeding can indicate a number of underlying organic issues.
Amenorrhea is typically divided into subcategories - primary amenorrhea and secondary amenorrhea. In primary amenorrhea, the woman reached reproductive age and never had a menstrual period. In secondary amenorrhea, the woman had previous menstrual periods but they have since stopped. Primary amenorrhea is frequently caused by a problem in a key reproductive organ such as the uterus from early development. Secondary amenorrhea is usually caused by hypothalamic or pituitary gland malfunctions leading to hormonal imbalances. Specific causes of secondary amenorrhea include breastfeeding, extreme weight loss, medication use (e.g. oral contraceptive pills and psychiatric medications), thyroid problems, high prolactin levels and stress.
