How can amenorrhea be prevented?

Because amenorrhea can be caused by a number of different conditions, it can be unavoidable sometimes, as with genetic disorders and some medication. However, lasting amenorrhea can cause long-term problems such as osteoporosis, or bone loss, which is usually associated with menopause. The best way to prevent amenorrhea is to work to maintain a healthy weight through a balance of nutrition and exercise. This allows your body to distribute hormones and nutrition fairly, which keeps your body functioning properly. Stress management is also beneficial to avoiding amenorrhea and preventing sickness. It is also helpful to record when your menstruation cycle occurs, so you can evaluate the cause of any irregularities.
