Common Causes for Amenorrhea
Lack of menstruation can also be caused by an hormonal imbalance.
The 2 hormones that regulate women’s menstruation: estrogen and progesterone
When we eat poorly and mostly junk, indulge in too many sugary foods and we top it off with stress, estrogen levels tend to increase. This ultimately means that progesterone will drop.
When progesterone drops to a minimum, we no longer have menses, the blood flow. This happens even when we ovulate regularly, because estrogen is responsible for the ovulation and progesterone for the formation of the menses.
There are no sources of progesterone in nature.
But once we cleanse the body, progesterone regulates automatically. The best thing to do to balance these hormones and recover from amenorrhea is to eat a clean diet. That is, leafy greens, fresh fruits and veggies mostly. Avoid processed foods, fatty foods, deep fried foods and all that sugar.
Although it may look scary at first, there are natural ways in which you can fight back amenorrhea, but at the same time you need to fix the underlying problems that led to it.
Consulting a specialist is, of course, recommended.

Maybe few women actually know that amenorrhea may be a consequence of stress. And in this case, or in case of a genital medical condition causing it, amenorrhea can be fixed with great reflexology.
Why? Stress is easily wiped out with reflexology, and if confronted with ovary or uterus conditions, reflexology can help unlock the blood flow in the area, that helps rebuild the damaged genital organs and their boosts their good functioning.
You’ll need to undergo 20 to 25 reflexology session to help menstruation return and 2-3 session per week for the following month as well. Make sure you find a specialist to help you out!
My Personal Experience with Amenorrhea
When I was around 28 years old, a few years back, I myself had amenorrhea. First, my menstruation was coming very late, then I had about 2-3 months in a row with no menstruation at all. It was not the case of being pregnant and I never experienced it before in my life. My cycles were regular and pain free.
I went to a gynecologist and after a few test, I was diagnosed with low progesterone. My ovulation was normal, my ovaries we’re doing OK.
After a thorough research I found out about a natural remedy for amenorrhea called Vitex agnus-castus. This is basically a tree called chasteberry, native to the Mediterranean region of Europe. It is most commonly used for PMS, and other menstruation imbalances or disorders.
I bought a natural vitex supplement and I followed the recommended dosage on the bottle. I have to say that it really worked in my case. But what I also did was not stress about it. I understood my body was going through a phase, and I let everything go. I stopped labeling the situation as negative and I knew it was a matter of time before I would have my regular menstruation back. And I was right.
This is what worked for me. I cannot say it will work for anyone, there are plenty natural remedies for amenorrhea here that have been followed by women all over the world and proven to work.
Follow your heart and try what’s best for you. What I want to leave you with, though, is that amenorrhea is not untreatable and when you worry about it, you make it double. Stay healthy, naturally!
