From Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA:

Can uncontrolled diabetes cause irregular menstrual cycles or stop menses?


They can. However, I would make sure your physician looks for other reasons for having your menses stop, besides poorly controlled diabetes. This is a very important point. Make sure you review this with your physician. If menses have stopped, make sure you get checked to determine if you are pregnant.
