Hello doctor,

I have a concern with my menstruation. My last menstruation ended a few years ago, and I still do not have menstruation. Why so?

Please help.



Welcome to

I went through your query and understood your concern.

Having no menstrual periods is called amenorrhea. Amenorrhea is normal in the following circumstances.

1. Before puberty.

2. During pregnancy.

3. While breastfeeding.

This is because estrogen levels are altered.

So, I suggest you maintain a healthy lifestyle, drink more water, avoid stress, and consult a specialist doctor soon. Also, you can go for an ultrasound.

I hope this has helped you.

Thanks and regards.
