Hi fellow Drs. I’m 30 years old and married 1 year and never had my period since birth. I was told by doctor to wait till the menstruation come on its own when I was 22. But till now I still have not yet menstruate. I have a tall stature of 174cm and weight 70kgs.

Hi, thank you for contacting us.

We understand your concern that you never have your menstruation. There are various causes why someone do not attend her menarche or first menstruation. For example:

  • Imperforate hymen
  • Abnormal anatomical structure of the uterus
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Constitutional delay of menstruation
  • Chromosomal causes
  • Hormonal causes: Hypogonadotrophic cause (no production of leutenizing hormone (LH)), or hyptohalamic cause (no production of gonadotrophic releasing hormone (GnRH)) where these two hormone play a role in menstruation

Get through that time of the month comfortably without leak.
