Managing Irregular Menstrual Cycles Brings Benefits

Regularity of menstrual cycles is considered an indicator of women’s reproductive health; changes in the menstrual cycle have different reasons and are often attributed to ovaries-thyroid and pituitary axis dysfunctions. Secondary amenorrhoea is characterised by cessation of previously regular menses for three months or previously irregular menses for six months and warrants evaluation. Dydrogesterone has been shown to effectively induce withdrawal bleeding and maintain regular bleeding in women with secondary amenorrhoea and normal oestrogen levels.
