A loss of periods is called amenorrhea, a condition that may result from low levels of certain hormones. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Get enough nutrients

    Eat more food or choose a high-calorie supplement if you are underweight, have low body fat, or are an athlete

  • Try progesterone

    Talk to your doctor to see if taking 200 to 300 mg a day of this hormone can help normalize your menstrual function

  • Look after your bones

    Protect yourself from amenorrhea-related bone loss by taking 800 to 1,500 of calcium and 400 to 800 IU of vitamin D each day

  • Talk to your doctor

    Ask about oral birth control pills (Ortho Tri-Cyclen, Loestrin, Mircette), medroxyprogesterone (Provera), or clomiphene (Clomid, Serophene)

  • Get a checkup

    Visit your doctor to find out if your amenorrhea is the result of a treatable medical problem

  • Regulate your workouts

    Balance hormone function by avoiding intense or excessive exercise
