Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answeredThe treatment options for amenorrhea depend on its cause. For some women, treatment consists of healthy lifestyle changes geared toward maintaining a healthy weight, managing stress, or regulating physical activity. Others may need a prescription for oral contraceptives in order to regulate a hormonal disorder such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). If the amenorrhea was caused by a tumor, it can be removed surgically. Other causes such as genetic disorders may not have treatment. Girls under 16 who have primary amenorrhea will be checked regularly for signs of puberty such as breast development and bodily hair. They can also be prescribed hormones such as progestin or estrogen to help kick-start their menstrual cycle and promote the effects of puberty.
