These Signs May Be Telling You That Something Is Wrong With Your Menstrual Cycle
Most women are used to the pain, cramps and heavy bleeding, the accompanying symptoms of menstruation every month. But, some of these symptoms are not so normal for the menstrual cycle. Through them, our bodies try to warn us that something is happening, that something might be wrong.
The menstrual cycle varies from woman to woman. We are all different. But, when you experience these symptoms, visit your gynecologist immediately, to get checked!
3 Types Of Menstruation Problems
The menstrual cycle takes place within a framework that’s considered normal, from 21 to 45 days. But ideally, this would be on every 28 days. The problem occurs when a menstruation happens too often, on every 20 days, or less. Or when it comes once in every two months. Keep in mind that different types of contraception can cause menstrual disorders of this kind.
Stress, diet and strenuous training can cause longer menstrual cycles, which does not endanger the health directly. But, just in case, you should inform your doctor. A disease of the thyroid gland is a major health problem, that’s often manifested thru irregular menstruation.
If you experience unbearable cramps, you may have one of two problems. The first one is an excessive production of hormones in the uterus. The second one is an increased sensitivity to them. For all women who notice these symptoms, it’s recommendable to visit their gynecologist, as there are certain medications that can help with this problem.
Heavy Period (Menorrhagia)
Usually, the bleeding during a menstruation lasts from two to seven days. On average, you need from 3 to 6 tampons a day, to absorb the blood. Of course, this is variable and still depends on the woman’s body. But, if you need to change a tampon on every hour, something might be wrong! Go get that checked with your gynecologist!
The reasons for these excessive bleedings can be a disorder of the thyroid gland or uterus problems, such as endometriosis, polyps or fibroids, or even uterine myomas.
If you are experiencing some of these symptoms, don’t panic. Book an appointment with your GYN and make sure that everything is ok.
