My Dictionary says amenorrhea is: Abnormal suppression or absence of menstruation, but what the heck is secondary amenorrhea? LMK if you can add addition information to what a Pharmaceutical company means by secondary.

Primary amenorrhea means never having menstruated. Secondary amenorrhea refers to suppression/suspension of menstruation sometime after a woman has menstruated normally for a period of time.
