It must be diagnosed by the specialist, usually your gynecologist or endocrinologist to investigate the actual cause and correct the disorder with specific treatment where possible. 

Naturopathy can be a valid support to soothe the symptomatological manifestation and correct the cause, with some balanced supplements.

Angelica  ( Angelica Sinensis ) has always been used in China to support the female system and soothe menstrual disorders, such as amenorrhea , dysmenorrhea and unbalanced menopause conditions.
