What is Menstrual Disorder

A menstrual disorder refers to any deviation from the normal patterns of a woman's menstrual cycle. These deviations can manifest as changes in cycle length, irregular bleeding, absence of menstruation (amenorrhea), heavy or prolonged bleeding (menorrhagia), severe menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea), or other abnormal symptoms. Menstrual disorders can be caused by various factors, including hormonal imbalances, medical conditions (such as polycystic ovary syndrome or thyroid disorders), stress, weight fluctuations, and certain medications. Diagnosing and managing menstrual disorders are essential to ensure reproductive health and overall well-being.

FAQ'S

1. What are the common signs of a menstrual disorder?

Menstrual disorders can manifest in various ways. Look out for irregular or absent periods, heavy or prolonged bleeding, severe cramps, extreme mood swings, and unexplained fatigue. If you notice persistent changes in your menstrual cycle, it's essential to consult a healthcare professional.

2. What causes menstrual disorders?

Menstrual disorders can result from hormonal imbalances, conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or endometriosis, stress, weight fluctuations, and certain medications. Genetics and age transitions, such as puberty and menopause, can also play a role. Accurate diagnosis by a medical expert is crucial to identify the underlying cause.

3. What is considered a normal menstrual cycle, and when should I be concerned about irregularities?

A normal menstrual cycle typically ranges from 21 to 35 days, with bleeding lasting 2 to 7 days. Irregularities that should raise concerns include cycles consistently shorter than 21 days, longer than 35 days, or periods characterised by very heavy or prolonged bleeding.

4. Can stress and lifestyle factors contribute to menstrual disorders? 

Yes, stress, poor sleep, excessive exercise, and drastic weight changes can disrupt hormonal balance, leading to menstrual irregularities or disorders.

5. What role do hormonal imbalances play in causing menstrual disorders? 

Hormonal imbalances, such as excess oestrogen or progesterone, can disrupt the normal menstrual cycle, leading to conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or irregular bleeding.
