What is Hypothalamic Amenorrhea?
Menstruation ceases for several months as a result of a hypothalamus-related disorder and this is known as hypothalamic amenorrhea.

The central brain region known as the hypothalamus regulates reproduction of a number of hormones in our body. It creates Gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) as well. This is directly linked with functions of Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which is produced before ovulation, and luteinizing hormone (LH), which is produced after ovulation. Both of which are required for the egg to mature and ovulate. GnRH will consequently decrease the production of other hormones (FSH, LH, and estrogen) and this causes the menstruation to stop abruptly and can also lead to infertility.
