General & Reproductive Health
Menstruation refers to physiological changes at the level of the lining of the uterus. It normally occurs at regular intervals of 21-35 days.
Menstruation prepares the body for sexual reproduction. Having a regular menstrual cycle is a clearly important in planning pregnancy. Any abnormalities such as delayed or early menstrual periods, excessive pain & bleeding during the periods indicate that you might be suffering from certain gynaecological conditions.
Menstrual irregularities and pain are very common. They can affect quality of life.
Various menstrual irregularities include:
- Amenorrhea – No menstrual periods until the age of 16 years or absence of menstrual periods for 3 consecutive months and is not pregnant
- Dysmenorrhoea – Painful periods
- Menorrhagia – heavy bleeding
- Oligomenorrhoea – Irregular menstrual periods or getting periods infrequently
- Premature ovarian failure – Normal function of the ovary is stopped
Menstrual irregularities should be diagnosed early to prevent complications such as infertility, anaemia, and uterine cancer. Treatment may include lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise, medicine or surgery. Often a combination of all three is required.
