5. Thyroid Problems
Thyroid problems can also affect the hormones that control your period. Many women have a thyroid disorder called hypothyroidism. According to A.D.A.M. Medical Encyclopedia,” Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone.” Symptoms include sensitivity to cold, constipation, pale dry skin, weight gain, depression, heavy or missed periods and many more. If you experience any of these symptoms along with amenorrhea have your doctor run a blood test to check your thyroid levels. Hypothyroidism is easily corrected with medication.
