    There is wide variation between women’s susceptibility to stop menstruating due to illness, stress, weight loss, or exercise. Speaking with a patient who has amenorrhea, the absence of a menstrual period in someone of reproductive age, Richard Quinton explores whether a genetic mutation from our Neolithic ancestors carried by people in the present day holds the key to this variation.
