Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

The absence of menstruation during puberty or later in a woman's life is called amenorrhea. This condition occurs in two forms, primary and secondary amenorrhea. The absence of menstruation and secondary sexual characteristics (pubic hair, breast development) in females by age fourteen or the absence of menstruation with normal development of secondary sexual characteristics in girls by age sixteen is primary amenorrhea. This affects less than 3 percent of adolescent girls. Females who were menstruating but then stop for three consecutive months or longer have secondary amenorrhea.
