No Menstrual Periods But Also Not Pregnant

Women have menstrual cycles every month from puberty until menopause.  The normal menstrual cycle varies from women to women and it is usually 28+/-7 days. The average length of menstrual periods also varies from 3 to 5 days, sometimes menstrual periods can last up to 7 days.

Missed Periods Usually Indicate Pregnancy

Missed periods often indicate pregnancy. However, there is always a possibility of not having menstrual periods, but also not being pregnant. What could it be?

Missed periods in medicine are also known as amenorrhea. There are two types of amenorrhea: primary and secondary amenorrhea. Primary amenorrhea is the absence of menstrual periods after the age of 15 years old. It is a condition where a female has never had a menstrual period in her life. The reasons of primary amenorrhea are usually genetic or due to certain diseases. Secondary amenorrhea is the absence of menstrual periods, in a woman who has had menstrual periods in the past. The reasons of secondary amenorrhea vary.

Medical Conditions That Interfere with Menstrual Periods

Different medical conditions can interfere with your menstrual periods. Some of these conditions include:

Stress – Yes, stress. It is one of the main things that interferes with your menstrual cycle leading to irregular menstrual cycles, but sometimes also to a total absence of the menstrual periods.

Low weight – also interferes with your menstrual cycle. Extreme low caloric intake and also low body weight suppresses the activity of the hypothalamus, leading to low levels of estrogen. Bulimia nervosa and anorexia nervosa also interfere with the menstrual cycle leading to a missed period.
