Background: Relatively few studies have assessed psychosocial correlates for secondary amenorrhea. Our study of the Gynaecological condition concerning personality factor (on introversion-extroversion dimension), parenting (authoritarian and authoritative) style, depression and perceived stress addresses this gap in the literature. The study inquires, whether these variables are related. Aims and objectives: To evaluate the relation of personality, parenting, stress and depression in patients with secondary amenorrhoea. Methods: Evaluation was done for forty-four young-adult female patients (with their fathers alive) affected by secondary amenorrhea, requesting help for menstrual disorders. The Parental Authority Questionnaire administered on the parent of patients, and Beck Depression Inventory, Perceived stress scale, Kundu Introversion-Extraversion Inventory on patients. In addition to that sixty healthy participants were recruited. The 104 participants were divided into two groups according to the presence (44 cases) or the absence (60 cases) of clinically diagnosed secondary amenorrhea. Results: Appropriate use of correlation coefficient followed by a test of significance revealed significant correlations between the variables which were hypothesised in accordance and hadbeen discussedregarding future research. Conclusions: Secondary amenorrhea was found to be possibly associated with personality factors, stress, depression and the kind of parenting individuals receive during their lifetime.
