Which body part or function is involved in Amenorrhea (missed periods)?
The ovaries have two major reproductive functions in the body. They release oocytes (eggs) for fertilization and they secrete the reproductive hormones, estrogen, and progesterone. The performance of the ovaries is regulated by a gonadotropin-releasing hormone secreted from nerve cells in the hypothalamus which sends their information to the pituitary gland to release luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone. These are run in the bloodstream to regulate the menstrual cycle.
The ovaries release an egg (oocyte) at the interval of each menstrual cycle. Normally, only a single oocyte from one ovary is secreted during each menstrual cycle, with each ovary taking a substitute turn in releasing an egg. A female baby is born with all the eggs that stay remain all over her reproductive age. During puberty to menopause, only about 400–500 eggs will become mature, then released from the ovary (in a process called ovulation) and be able of being fertilized in the fallopian tubes/uterine tube/oviduct of the female reproductive system.
Amenorrhea is a condition in which menstruation is absent during the reproductive period of women, from puberty till menopause. It is not considered to be a disease, and it does not mean that a woman is infertile, but it can be a sign of a Severe issue that needs immediate attention. During puberty, menstruation starts, and then it starts its cycle of about one month until the age of 50 years means menopause. At this time, periods stop completely, as menopause starts up. During pregnancy, menstruation also stops, and it is natural to stop while breastfeeding, too. Earlier, it was assumed that contraceptives increase a woman’s chances of amenorrhea following the use of the pill, but this has been proven not to be the cause.
