Hypothalamic amenorrhea. What is the definition of this condition? It’s a term that I’ve learned a bit about especially after struggling with it for 10+ years.
This is the definition of that I picked up from off of Google,
‘Hypothalamic amenorrhea is a condition in which menstruation stops for several months due to a problem involving the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is in the center of the brain and controls reproduction. It produces gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH).’
I’m not going to go into the science of it, because I’m not a nutritionist, dietitian, doctor, nurse, nurse practitioner, and I want you to go to your health practitioners for practical advice on what you’re supposed to do if you’re wrestling with this.
