Menstrual Irregularities

Menstrual irregularities are variations in the normal menstrual cycle that can include changes in the frequency, duration, amount or pain of bleeding.
-Irregular periods: Periods usually last from 4 to 8 days, they average number of days is somewhat around 5 days. An average menstrual cycle is considered to be every 28 days but, regular cycles that are longer or shorter than this for example 23 to 35 days are also normal. Irregular periods are a common problem during puberty and just before the menopause.
-Heavy periods : For some women, having heavy periods is a natural phenomena but if you suddenly experience heavy bleeding once or from last few menstrual cycles, you need to consult a doctor.
-Painful periods: During periods, the womb squeezes to expel the blood, which often causes pain during periods. This is normal. Moving around and taking common painkillers, like paracetamol, ibuprofen and aspirin, may help ease the pain. However, Ibuprofen and aspirin are contraindicated for patients with asthma or gastrointestinal, cardiac, renal or hepatic disorders. Aspirin is also not recommended for children under 16 years of age.
- Stopped or missed periods: The absence or cessation of menstrual periods can have various causes. Some of the most frequent ones are: conception, emotional distress, rapid weight reduction, excessive physical activity, transitioning to menopause.
