Menstrual disorders, or otherwise abnormal bleeding, can be a difficult and sometimes frightening experience for most women who experience them. They are abnormalities in the cycle that appear for various reasons and are either due to occasional hormonal disorders or are the cause of more serious underlying diseases.
Typical symptoms of these disorders are:
For this reason, it is important to know the frequency and duration of your period and record it every month, along with symptoms such as pain, the amount, and color of the blood. Knowing that the duration of menstruation is not the same for all women, as a period is considered normal when it comes every 21 to 35 days and lasts from 3 to 8 days, only through recording can you really perceive the changes that may be related to the appearance of cycle abnormalities.
Below, we will explore some of the most common causes of cycle disorders and inform you about the cases where you should definitely seek help.
One of the most common causes that can cause period disorders is hormonal disorders. These can be caused by various factors, such as the use of certain medications, changes in body weight, and underlying conditions that a woman may have. Hormonal disorders, which are not dangerous, can appear at certain important stages of life, such as adolescence, menopause, or pregnancy.
Another common cause of period disorders is infection or inflammation of the pelvic organs (uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries). These can be caused by sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), such as chlamydia and gonorrhea, or by vaginitis or other uterine infections. Inflammation can also be caused by the use of certain products, such as scented soaps or "special" preparations for the sensitive area, which can irritate the sensitive tissue of the vagina.
In some cases, cycle disorders can be a sign of a more serious underlying condition for a woman, such as endometriosis or uterine fibroids.
