She last stopped the pills in Dec 2020, and have yet to have any menstruation since.

Hi, thank you for reaching out to us.

We understand the condition of your wife. However, more information is needed as well is further investigation needed to be done by the doctor so that the cause can be find out. There are few causes why your wife is experiencing such issues, such as:

  • Overweight: Excessive body weight can disrupt a woman’s menstrual cycle
  • Stress
  • Hormonal imbalance; withdrawing contraceptive pills or any hormonal contraception method can cause hormonal imbalance and then disrupt the menstruation cycle
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • Problems with the thyroid or pituitary gland
  • Ovarian failure

Get through that time of the month comfortably without leak.

Still worried about your menstrual cycle? Speak to a gynaecologist today to ease your mind.
