Diagnosis

Clinical examination of the patient along with appropriate laboratory tests ensures correct diagnosis of the causative factors of the Amenorrhea.

When a patient presents with Primary Amenorrhea, she must be clinically examined for all the visible signs that may be part of the disease. Presence of increased levels of androgen or a deficiency of estrogen needs to be assessed through a simple blood test. Prolactin and TSH levels also need to be checked in order to ascertain the underlying causes of the disease.

A complementary test which performs karyotyping of the chromosomes needs to be carried out wherever necessary to rule out Cytogenetic abnormalities.
