Secondary Amenorrhea and Loss of Weight
Hypothalamic amenorrhea is the cause of approximately 60% of secondary amenorrheas and three-fourths of these are psychogenic [2,4]. These amenorrheas can be due to a simple loss of weight or can be the consequence of a previous anorexia nervosa. This hypothalamic disorder is functional and resumption of ovulation can be associated with restoration of weight. In this survey I have tried to evaluate how often pregnancy could be obtained through dietary measures without gonadotropin therapy.
