It is common for women to become anxious when they experience amenorrhea because they are often unsure of its cause. But there are many things you can do daily to help regulate your menstrual cycle. For example, you can maintain a healthy weight by balancing a nutritious diet with moderate exercise. You can also practice stress management on a daily basis by seeking emotional support from family and friends or performing calming activities like meditation or yoga. For future references, you should record your menstrual cycle so that you can note any times of irregularities and talk to a doctor about the cause. With the help of your doctor, you can figure out the reason for your amenorrhea and begin treatment.
