Periods should occur like clockwork; normal menstrual cycle involves periods to start and stop at almost the same intervals every month. However, irregularities in periods can occur in women which can cause disruption in daily life.
Menstrual disorders involve women to go through a storm of physical and emotional symptoms and unmanageable mood swings.
Types of Menstrual disorders
There are several types of menstrual disorders. These are:
- Amenorrhea (absence of menstruation)
Primary amenorrhea usually occurs to young girls when they don’t menstruate by the age of 16. Similarly, secondary menstruation occurs when the last period stops for 3 months.
- Heavy bleeding
Heavy bleeding (aka menorrhagia) is excessive bleeding during periods or prolonged menstrual period.
- Oligomenorrhea (infrequent menstruation)
Oligomenorrhea is menstrual periods that occur more than 35 days apart.
- Dysmenorrhea (painful cramps)
Primary dysmenorrhea is the pain caused in menstruation. Secondary dysmenorrhea is the pain caused by other conditions such as uterine fibroids and endometriosis.
Causes of menstrual disorder
Root causes of menstrual disorder can be different for every woman. Some of the common causes include:
- Liver or kidney disease
- Structural abnormalities in the uterus
- Hormonal imbalance
- Thyroid problems
