Menstrual Health and Conditions

  • Amenorrhea
    Amenorrhea is a menstrual condition in which a woman's menstrual periods are absent for more than three monthly cycles. Pregnancy is one possible cause of amenorrhea.
  • Anatomy of Female Pelvic Area
    The female pelvic area contains a number of organs and structures: the endometrium, uterus, ovaries, cervix, vagina, and vulva.
  • Anatomy of the Breasts
    Each breast has 15 to 20 sections (lobes), which are arranged like the petals of a daisy. Each lobe has many smaller lobules, which end in dozens of tiny bulbs that can produce milk.
  • Dysmenorrhea
    Dysmenorrhea is a menstrual condition marked by severe and frequent menstrual cramps and pain. Dysmenorrhea can be either lifelong or caused by another medical condition.
  • Menorrhagia
    Menorrhagia is the most common type of abnormal uterine bleeding. In some cases, bleeding may be so severe that it interrupts daily activities.
  • Menstrual Cycle: An Overview
    A woman is generally most fertile (able to become pregnant) a few days before, during, and after ovulation.
  • Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)
    PMDD is a much more severe form of premenstrual syndrome. Women with a personal or family history of mood disorders or postpartum depression may be at higher risk for this disorder.
  • Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
    Most females experience some unpleasant or uncomfortable symptoms during their menstrual cycle. The type and intensity of symptoms vary.
  • Recognizing Gynecologic Problems
    Vaginal bleeding and discharge are a normal part of your menstrual cycle. If you notice anything different or unusual, talk with your health care provider.
