What Are Menstrual Problems?
Menstruation is the monthly bleeding from the uterus. The terms menstruation, menorrhea, menses and period all mean the same thing.
Menstruation is the result of the hormonally controlled female fertility cycle. The first menstruation occurs in puberty and is referred to as menarche and the last occurs during the change of life. This is called the menopause. Ideally, the cycle lasts for “one lunar cycle”, i.e., 28 days, but varies from individual to individual. Less than 23 days is referred to as polymenorrhoea and more than 35 days as oligomenorrhoea.
Some of the most common causes of menstrual disorders are as follows:
- Issues with ovulation
- Hormone imbalances
- Genetic factors
- Clotting disorders
- Pelvic Diseases
- Bleeding disorders
- Medications and contraceptives
- Extreme weight loss
- Eating disorders
- Thyroid problems
PMS occurs one to two weeks before your period begins. Some women experience a range of physical and emotional symptoms. Others experience a few symptoms or even none at all. PMS can cause:
- breast soreness
- food cravings
- excessive fatigue
- feelings of stress
- mild stomach cramps
You may experience different symptoms every month, and the severity of these symptoms can also vary. PMS is uncomfortable, but it’s generally not worrisome unless it interferes with your normal activities.
The average length of a cycle is 28 days, but it can vary from 21 to 40 days.
For many women, the length of the cycle and the amount of bloodshed is around the same every cycle. However, some women have irregular periods.
There may be variations in:
- the interval length between periods
- the amount of blood loss
- the duration of bleeding
Irregular periods may be caused by a wide range of factors including the following:
- benign lesions like uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps, and scarring
- hormone imbalance
- bleeding disorders
- changes in birth control methods
- infection in the uterus
- cancer of the uterine lining or cervical cancer
Women who experience uncomfortable symptoms related to menstruation may find that treatment offers some relief.
