Is amenorrhea genetic?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 08/06/2020

Primary amenorrhea, that is, the absence of menstruation in women when they reach puberty, is often related to genetic disorders that cause malformations of the female sex organs.

An additional risk factor is a family history of amenorrhea, so it is important to visit the OB/GYN on a regular basis.
