Menstrual Disorders

Menstrual Disorders Treatment

Every month, the uterus prepares itself to nourish a baby, by readying the endometrial lining. When fertilization of the released egg doesn’t occur in that month, the body sheds the endometrial lining, leading to a menstrual period. While the period of each woman has its own set of regularities, any deviation can indicate a menstrual disorder that must be treated.

What are Menstrual Disorders?

Most women have a menstrual cycle of 21-35 days, with menstruation typically occurring every 24-28 days. Menstrual problems are characterized by abnormalities in the menstrual cycle, which can also sometimes be accompanied by uncomfortable symptoms. There are various types of menstrual disorders:

  • Amenorrhea – Absence of a period for more than 90 days, unless a woman is pregnant, breastfeeding, under 16 years of age, or undergoing menopause.
  • Oligomenorrhea- Infrequent periods, which occur at irregular intervals
  • Dysmenorrhea- Extremely painful cramps during the period
  • Abnormal Uterine Bleeding- Heavier or lighter flow, spotting or bleeding between periods, periods which last for longer than 7 days

What are the causes of Menstrual Disorders?

There are various Menstrual Disorder cases, which could cause a certain condition in women.

  • Going on or off birth control pills
  • Uterine polyps or fibroids which are benign tumors on the wall of the uterus
  • PCOD (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome), in which hormonal imbalance causes an irregular release of eggs from the ovaries
  • Stress and lifestyle, such as fluctuation or increase in weight, smoking, etc.
  • Endometriosis, during which the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus
  • Premature Ovarian Insufficiency, which occurs when the ovaries do not function as normal
