After amenorrhea occurs, go to the hospital for a gynecological B-ultrasound examination to check the size of the uterus, whether the ovaries are atrophied, and the thickness of the endometrium. If the condition is not very serious and the duration of the disease is not long, traditional Chinese medicine can be used as the main treatment; if the hormone level is low, the duration of the disease will be longer. For a long time, combined traditional Chinese and Western medicine treatment can be taken, such as estrogen and progesterone sequential therapy, with a cycle of 3 months and 6 months, so that the uterus and ovaries can establish a new cycle again with the help of external hormones and achieve a new balance.
