Meaning of Amenorrhea
Amenorrhoea (BE), amenorrhea (AmE), or amenorrhœa, is the absence of a menstrual period in a woman of reproductive age. Physiological states of amenorrhoea are seen, most commonly, during pregnancy and lactation (breastfeeding), the latter also forming the basis of a form of contraception known as the lactational amenorrhoea method. Outside of the reproductive years there is absence of menses during childhood and after menopause. - See link


Amenorrhea in Spanish is Amenorrea
La amenorrea es la ausencia de la menstruación porque nunca comenzó o porque se interrumpió posteriormente. Puede ser normal (fisiológica) o ser indicativo de enfermedad (patológica).1 En este último caso, la amenorrea no es el diagnóstico, sino que es un síntoma de una enfermedad anatómica, genética o neuroendocrina.2 - See link
