Irregular menstruation may be a sign of a medical problem that you are not aware of, such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), thyroid gland problems, uncontrolled diabetes, and growth hormone-regulating hormones.
Overweight or obesity can cause estrogen imbalances in the female body to cause a menstrual cycle. Also the medication you take for certain medical issues that may interfere with your menstrual cycle. Seizures, sedatives, contraceptives, pregnancy hormone pills cause menstrual cycles. Talk to your doctor before taking these medications. Maybe the doctor will change the dose, change the medication depending on the medical problem.
Menstruation is the natural blood that comes out of the womb after a woman reaches puberty. The smooth menstrual process is also indicative of the woman’s reproductive organs being healthy. Any problems in the menstrual cycle should be noted as they can lead to a variety of problems.
According to the MD Web site, menstruation can be a ‘warn’ about your health as a woman.
Here are 5 health-related issues about your menstrual cycle.
- More or less menstrual blood flow
If your menstrual blood flow is so high that you regularly change your towel or tampon and continue for more than a week, it may be an indication of another problem.
There is a possibility that it may be related to reproductive or hormone organ problems, infections, diseases of the pelvic bone, or blood.
- Menstrual cycle and tiredness
Do you lose a lot of blood and feel tired? Excessive red blood cells lead to anemia and iron deficiency. If you are breathing fast and short, feel weak and tired, look pale, have a rapid heartbeat, you may have red blood cells. You should immediately see a doctor for treatment.
- Missed out menstruation
This is the most important thing! If you are late in the month and you are not pregnant, then the hormones in your body are out of balance. You should immediately see a gynecologist for help.
- Menstrual blood color
Purple-colored like berries: Shows extremely high levels of estrogen. It usually occurs in the menstrual cycle when you experience heavy flow.
Red-colored like strawberry jam: A slightly darker color indicates low estrogen levels. May cause vaginal dryness, hair loss, and fatigue.
Solid-colored like cranberry juice: Usually, those who come in the menstruation of this color will experience PMS.
- Period cramp
Swelling or cramps that are felt on the lower abdomen can cause serious health problems such as endometriosis. Endometriosis is a condition in which the uterine tissue begins to grow on the outside of the uterus (on the pelvic floor).
As a result, blood flow is blocked and causes seizures or inflammation. But after cramp disappears as you grow older or after you give birth to a baby.
Headaches at the beginning of each menstrual period may be associated with a decrease in estrogen levels or release of prostaglandins known as menstrual migraines.
It can be prevented with painkillers such as mefenamic acid and naproxen or your doctor will help you keep your estrogen levels stable.
- Menopause but still menstruating
Women who have menopause rarely get menstruation. However, if you take tamoxifen for breast cancer, it is possible that your menstruation will return. In addition, polyps and endometrial cancer will also cause bleeding during menopause.
