Abstract

An amenorrhoeic female is characterized when she has missed her menses for two or more months consecutively in a row. Such menstrual-related issue is prevalent in young females that are reproductively active and requires medical attention otherwise complications like infertility, psychosocial developmental delays, and osteoporosis, fractures, etc might result in such adolescent females at a very early age. Therefore it is crucial to diagnose and identify amenorrhea and its contributing factors in young females’. The obtained results of our study suggested that amenorrhea is prevalent among adolescent females that suffer from a high level of stress due to academic burden, hormonal imbalance, dietary deficiency, and premenstrual symptoms.
