Most of the women at some point in their lives have experienced irregular periods. They could have been due to temporary conditions, like high amounts of stress, nutritional deficiency etc. Irregularity can be allowed for everyone, but only for once in a while. If this irregularity continues then it is a cause for concern.
Irregular periods can be a sign of hormonal imbalance. And you may need to give your body some extra support to return to its normal rhythm.
Now let us first understand what are irregular periods?
Irregularity in your periods means you could experience any of the following:
- you may have heavy bleeding or very scanty bleeding
- long cycle or a very short cycle
- you may have a skipped period
- you may also have spotting
There is no particular definition of irregularity. If you experience any changes in your monthly cycles, which last longer than usual, it is considered as irregular periods.
Some of the causes that can lead to this irregularity are:
- Hormonal disturbances
Imbalance or fluctuations in thyroid hormones, adrenal hormones or sex hormones can be a cause of irregular periods
If you are suffering from PCOS, you may have irregular periods. Women who suffer from PCOS have imbalance in their hormonal levels, insulin resistance and increased in male hormones (androgens).
Chronic stress can increase the levels of stress hormone (cortisol). This interferes with the progesterone and estrogen (steroid hormones), thus interfering with the menstrual cycle.
- Thyroid gland
If your thyroid gland is not functioning well as in hypothyroidism, you may experience irregular periods. Thyroid is the master gland which regulates various functions in the body. Women suffering from hypothyroidism may have irregular periods, weight gain, acne and excess amounts of facial hair (hirsutism)
- Overweight or under weight
Being overweight can lead to irregular periods. Simultaneously, if you are underweight, lack of nutrition will exert more stress on the body. Increased amounts of stress will further increase cortisol levels leading to irregular periods.
There can be an irregularity in periods if you are nearing menopause.
How to tackle this problem of irregular periods?
You can certainly regularize your periods by following certain natural ways.
Cut down on high amounts of sugars and starch, as these can cause insulin imbalance.
