Post-pill amenorrhea | Page 3

This is an analysis of changes in menstrual cycle length and regularity occurring for a group of 211 women who had discontinued use of oral contraceptives. The analysis is based on prospectively recorded histories from the Menstruation and Reproduction History Program. Post-pill menstrual cycle length and regularity are compared with pre-pill averages. In the first post-pill cycle, there was an average increase of 6 days in cycle length. In subsequent cycles, however, cycle length and regularity were comparable to pre-pill norms in most cases...

The relationship of contraceptive history to diagnostic category of amenorrhoea was analysed in 131 consecutively investigated cases of secondary amenorrhoea. Amenorrhoea occurred in 52 patients immediately after discontinuing the oral contraceptive. Twenty-two had had amenorrhoea before oral contraceptive treatment and 23 patients before the episode of non-contraceptive-related amenorrhoea investigated here. When these cases were excluded from analysis there was no significant difference in the distribution of any of the diagnostic categories between those who had used the oral contraceptive and those who had not...

Presumably, post-Pill amenorrhoea reflects a mechanism whereby a hypothalamus "switched off" by the Pill does not switch on again when therapy is stopped. In Australia the incidence of post-Pill amenorrhoea appears to be in the vicinity of 1 in 200 for a six months duration and 1 in 400 for over 12 months. The only clearly defined feature of women who are likely to develop the syndrome is previous cycle irregularity--cycles consistently longer than 35 days. There is indication that nullipara and women with gross weight fluctuation may also be more likely to be affected...

After stopping hormonal contraception, some women have temporarily impaired fertility. In a study on more than 500 women, using the age of menarche as parameter, it was evaluated which would develop post-pill amenorrhea. It was found that women with early menarche are emotionally more stable, get higher school degrees and have a more positive state of mind regarding sexuality, pregnancy and birth than those with late menarche. All these factors should be considered in patient care.

Menstrual cycle lengths prior to and after oral contraceptive use were prospectively recorded for 245 women. In this preliminary study, a difference in the distributions in the pre- and post-pill cycle lengths was observed. An increase of 5 days in the medial cycle length occurred after oral contraceptive use had been discontinued. Although there was an approximately twofold relative risk of amenorrhea of 90 days' duration or more after discontinuing pill use, the differences in the rates of amenorrhea between the pre-pill and post-pill cycles were not statistically significant...

18 pregnancies occurred after treatment with bromoergocryptine in 17 patients who wished to conceive, but who suffered from anovulation of varying aetiology. The course of 15 pregnancies was uneventful. Three pregnancies ended in abortion. Nine of the 17 women had hyperprolactinemic amenorrhea. Furthermore, one woman had normoprolactinemic post-pill amenorrhea, another normoprolactinemic anovulatory oligomenorrhea and a third normoprolactinemic anovulatory regular menstruations. With the exception of one woman, all had galactorrhea...

Post-pill amenorrhea, a relatively rare but important sequela of oral contraceptive use, is often accompanied by galactorrhea. A review of women with post-pill amenorrhea-galactorrhea (PPAG) showed that it has more than one cause. Clinical and laboratory methods of evaluation are reviewed, and appropriate methods of treatment are suggested.

Luteinizing hormone (LH) responses to luteinizing hormone releasing hormone (LHRH), and growth hormone (GH) and cortisol responses to insulin induced hypoglycaemia were studied in 56 women classified into 4 distinct groups of functional secondary amenorrhoea. The groups were: I, self-induced weight reduction (20 patients); II, post pill amenorrhoea (14 patients); III, anorexia nervosa (10 patients); and IV, idiopathic secondary amenorrhoea (12 patients). Only patients with no overlapping anamnestic factors were included...

Pregnancy in adolescence is seldom planned. If an adolescent girl comes to the doctor with a pressing desire for hormonal contraception, the many risks must be weighed against each other. Endocrinologically the "post-pill amenorrhea" and later reduced fertility are quantitatively of little importance. Developmentally and psychologically the danger of delayed growth as a result of the steroids present in the ovulation inhibitors is small. It is particularly important to weight the perinatal risks of an unwanted pregnancy against the risks of a hormonal contraceptive...

19 women with anovulation after discontinuing oral contraceptive agents and with normal plasma-prolactin concentrations were treated with bromocriptine. Ovulation and menstruation were restored in 9 of the 13 amenorrhoeic and 5 of the 6 oligomenorrhoeic patients. The success-rate (74%) indicates that bromocriptine is an effective treatment for post-pill anovulation in normoprolactinaemic women.
