No periods (Amenorrhoea)

Ammenorhoea is the absence of the period for more than 6 months. This is not a diagnosis but a symptom of another condition. A wide range of other hormonal, physical and metabolic conditions can cause it and the most complex aspect of treating amenorrhoea is to establish the exact cause for the absent period.

It is abnormal for women not to have a period (unless they are pregnant or have reached menopause) and there is always something at the root of the problem that needs to be addressed before treatment is given. Also not having a regular period can lead to a whole host of other health issues in later life, in particular osteoporosis.

How natural therapies can help you

After ruling out pregnancy or any underlying hormonal disturbances from your Doctor, herbal and nutritional treatments are very effective at regulating hormonal balance and re-establishing menstruation. Treatment for Amenorrhea usually takes 3-12 months; depending on how long the periods have been absent and the underlying cause.

Treatment may include healthy weight modification, exercise, stress reduction techniques, dietary advice, nutritional supplements and/or herbal medicines. Any underlying emotional contributing factors will also be discussed and treated.
