    :new: Amenorrhea is a medical dysfunction which causes a woman to consecutively miss her menstrual cycle, therefore leaving her nearly unable to reproduce. Have any sisters here experienced this? I have way too many AA female friends who are struggling with this issue, esp. during their most productive years(mid-late twenties).Is this an environmental factor, stress, or some other diabolical plot to lessen OUR numbers. Please share your opinion sisters:)

    My cycle was irregular as a teen, but besides that I have not had any problems personally.

    If there is an increase in this problem it's probably because of our horrible diet (fatty foods filled with all kinds of chemicals, hormones and preservatives), high level of stress on our jobs, and lack of physical activity.

    The American way of life destroys the body and soul.

    we live in a thoroughly polluted environment.
    our eating habits are terrible.
    we get no exercise or fresh anything.

    I'm not surprised at any problem that comes up.

    Last year my menstrual cycle didn't come for about eight months and my doctor told me that it can be caused by stress and I was stressed out at the time.
