What is hypothalamic ammonorhea?

Verified by Dr. Staci Tanouye (she/her), MD FACOG, OB/GYN

Our Answer
What our doctors say

The name "hypothalamic ammonorhea" may sound confusing, but your hypothalamus is a small region at the base of your brain that regulates important functions in your body, the relevant one here being hormones, and ammonorhea is just a medical way of saying period-free. So if we stick that together, hypothalamic ammorhea is when your hormones, regulated by your hypothalamus region are causing you to not have a period-- not so scary right? To break it down in simple terms, when your hypothalamus gets overwhelmed, it goes to sleep and stop producing estrogen. No estrogen means no ovulation, and if you aren't ovulating, you're period is no more!
