Amenorrhea due to hormonal contraception

The action of hormonal contraceptive methods is based on blocking ovulation by acting on the hypothalamic-pituitary regulatory axis. Contraceptive methods usually contain estrogens and progesterone that inhibit the production of FSH and LH hormones necessary for the menstrual cycle. As these hormones are not produced, follicular development and ovulation cannot occur. Therefore, the administration of hormonal contraceptive methods could be the cause of the absence of menstruation or amenorrhea in women.
