you need more information, these codes are all in the category for disorders of menstruation and abnormal bleeding from female genital tract, in the chapter for disorders of the genital urinary system.
626.0 is either a complete lack of menses prior to the age of 16 or an absence of 6 months or greater,
626.4 irregular menses must have a pattern of irregularity documented not an isolated absence. and other is for some other specified disorder not listed.
if the patient is here due to a missed period or two and is seeking an answer to pregnant or not then you use V72.4x never a 626.x code.
