Jump to navigation. Amenorrhea is the medical term referring to the state of a woman who has missed at least three periods. It is easy to write-off missed periods as a convenience, but amenorrhea indicates your body has a problem that is preventing it from functioning normally. Athletes participating in physically demanding sports often have low estrogen levels, no matter how well balanced their diets are. Low levels of this hormone promote bone density loss, and by the time these athletes lose their period, their bones have suffered significantly. Amenorrhea can have a negative impact on reproductive, endocrine, and muscular-skeletal systems, so you should see a doctor if you go longer than 12 weeks without a period and need help to start menstruating again.
The smell of urine often changes based on a person's diet or fluid intake. However, a strong fishy odor may be the first sign of a severe medical issue.

If other symptoms are present and include pain in the lower back or difficulty urinating, a person should contact their doctor. In this article, we look at the causes, symptoms, and treatments for urine that smells like fish.
