Lactational Amenorrhea

Lactational Amenorrhea – A Brief Know-how

About

Lactational Amenorrhea is the medical situation when a mother doesn’t experience menstrual periods while breastfeeding.
There’s a 6% chance of pregnancy in the first 6 months after pregnancy in lactational amenorrhea. [4]

- Requires a medical diagnosis
- Lab tests or imaging rarely required
- Medium-term – Regular menstrual cycle resumes after 6 months
- Isn’t contagious – doesn’t spread among women
Pregnancy is the most common cause of amenorrhea; some others encompass defects in reproductive organs or glands that regulate hormonal levels. If ingestion of oral contraceptives is stopped, it may take a while for normal ovulation and the menstruation cycle to return.
Ages affected – Between 0 and 20: Rare; Between 20 and 55: Predominant; 55 and above: Rare

Symptoms

Requires a medical diagnosis
Symptoms include milky discharge from the nipples, headache, pelvic pain, acne, and so on.

People may experience:
Hair problems – Hair loss, excessive facial hair
Pain – pelvic pain, headache
Changes in facial features – acne
Also common – vision changes, milky nipple discharge

Treatment

Self-care:
Women who became mothers recently must take care of their body weight by eating healthy foods, and not taking excessive stress.
Often, hormonal imbalances trigger amenorrhea; conditions such as thyroid malfunctions or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) should be immediately let known to a gynecologist or health specialist.

Medications:
Hormonal medication or birth control pills may help restart the normal menstrual cycle. Medicines that cause periods to stop include -
a) Antipsychotics
b) Antidepressants
c) Allergy medications

Specialists:
In rare cases, procedures such as estrogen replacement therapy may be needed to be prescribed. We recommend young mothers to seek help from gynecologists and health specialists at mfine (www.mfine.co).
