How to Treat Irregular Menstruation?

Published at : 17-12-2019 View : 7068

        Irregular menstruation during puberty and around the menopause is not usually necessary. It can occur if there is a change in the contraception method, a hormone imbalance, hormonal changes around the time of the menopause, and endurance exercises.

Symptoms of Irregular Menstruation

  Most women have a cycle that ranges from 24 to 34 days and blood flow averages about four or five days, with a blood loss of about 40 ccs (3 tablespoons).

  Irregular Menstruation includes:

   Pale skin


   Shortness of breath


   Your period comes less often than every 45 days

   You have severe cramping or abdominal pain



Causes of Irregular Menstruation

  In many cases, irregular menstruations are related to a condition called anovulation. This means that ovulation has not taken place during your menstrual cycle, due to severe hormonal imbalances.

  The following factors that can trigger irregular menstruation include:

  Pregnancy - If you miss a period or notice changes in your period and you've had sex, pregnancy can cause you to miss your period or experience spotting. If you may be pregnant and experience sharp, stabbing pain in the abdomen or pelvis that lasts more than a few minutes, see a doctor right away to rule out ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage.

  Hormonal birth control - Birth control pills and hormone-containing intrauterine devices (IUDs) can cause irregular bleeding.

  Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) - Irregular periods are the most common sign of PCOS. If you have PCOS, you can miss periods and have heavy bleeding when you do get your period.

  Uterine fibroids - Fibroids are muscular tumors that develop in the wall of the uterus. Most fibroids are non-cancerous and can range in size from as small as an apple seed to the size of a grapefruit. Also, fibroids can cause your periods to be very painful and heavy enough to cause anemia.

  Extreme weight loss and eating disorders - Excessive or rapid weight loss can also cause your period to stop. Not consuming enough calories can interfere with the production of the hormones needed for ovulation.
