Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am really glad to help you out. In primary amenorrhoea, the menstrual cycle fails to begin at all.

There are several causes for the same and treatment & prognosis depends on the underlying cause.

You’ll need to undergo a physical examination and blood tests like thyroid function tests, LH/FSH, prolactin along with other tests like chromosome studies, pelvic ultrasound, laparoscopy etc to look for the cause.

The common causes which can be treated by lifestyle modification, medication or surgery are drastic weight reduction, Obesity, Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, chronic illness, Malnutrition, Congenital heart disease, Overactive thyroid, Imperforate hymen & Transverse vaginal septum.

The normal size of the uterus is 1"*2"*3". Hence, your uterus might be alittle smaller in size.

Please do consult a gynecologist for the same as it is not possible to make a diagnosis online. I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
