There are many reasons why a woman’s menstrual cycle becomes irregular. But one thing’s for sure – this is a very common scenario. Many women suffer from irregular menstrual cycle and not all of them are bothered about it.
The ones who are would normally go to a doctor to seek assistance. But the question is, what really causes this issue and how can it be addressed? Read on to know more.
Irregular menstrual cycle, more often than not, is caused by hormonal changes. Any shift in the hormone balance of a woman may lead to irregular cycles. And such irregularity comes with symptoms of its own.
Some women claim that they have delayed periods while others have missed them altogether. In months, menstruation seems extremely heavy while in others, only spotting is involved. All of these are signs that you suffer from irregular menstrual cycle.
Generally speaking, such a condition along with all its corresponding symptoms, are considered benign. In certain instances, they can even be regarded as normal. However, it is still advisable for a woman who is bothered by her irregular period to go and see a doctor for proper precaution.
Additionally, cutting on the factors that induces hormonal imbalance, which eventually causes irregularity
in the menstrual cycle, should be observed.
The most common reasons why women suffer from irregular menstrual cycle are poor nutrition, smoking, too much caffeine, use of prohibited drugs, over-exercising, significant change in weight, alcohol addiction, and increased stress.
There are also certain medical conditions that may lead to irregular menstrual cycle. These are, among others, abnormalities related to the uterus, polycystic ovarian syndrome, miscarriage, childbirth, breastfeeding, and the use of certain medications.
With proper therapy, one’s irregular periods may become regular again. Just follow the medications of your doctor and the necessary precautions to keep you on the safe side. For some women, the condition corrects itself naturally. On others, supplements may be required to regain hormonal balance.
I saw my period on the 5th of June and am seeing it again on the 22nd of the same.. what could be the cause? Because am confused am only feeling a slight abdominal pain not serious and the flow is normal and rushing out.
Hi Princess. It’s normal that you could see your period twice in a month. This shouldn’t be of any concern. If it’s lighter than normal it could be ovulation bleeding as well.

Hello Cyndricka, please read the below to help you with this:
I have saw my period on the 17/1/18. But this month nothing what can it be? I have tested for the pregnancy nothing , I have a blood test it come…… Like recently ovulation so what that mean? Can you be ovulating without see period? Because I’m trying our to get pregnant.
Hi Rose, I’m a bit confused by when you say “I have a blood test it come…like recently ovulation.” Do you mean you took a blood test and it was negative, or that you were ovulating? You won’t get a period if you are not ovulating and if you aren’t ovulating on a regular schedule your period will be abnormal as well. If you are taking ovulation tests, take them and see when the best times to have intercourse would be if you are trying to get pregnant.

I have been diagnosed peri-menopausal at the age of 34. I have stopped smoking for about 8 months this year and started again in September. I have seen my gynecologist a couple of months ago whom has told me I have a small growth. I’m 48, married with a female partner. My body have been showing signs of irregular cycles. This month I missed my cycle completely. Should I look at hormone treatments?
Hello Franco, your message is unclear, you did not state where the doctor said you had the small growth. I advise that you stick to the instructions and recommendations of your doctor who diagnosed and has been treating you.

And the adult acne that I’m getting as well with the hormone changes.
Hello Diane, yes menopause is hereditary but it may or may not be true always. The hormonal changes you are having could be the sign of menopause. Keep tracking your menstrual cycle to be sure.

Hi Luna, the first thing you can do is having intercourse on your most fertile days. Have you done that?
Hi,Your menstrual cycle starts the day you actually flow blood not when you are spotting,so count the first day you start flowing.
Hello. Me and my husband are trying for a baby. .I want to know when I start my menstrual cycle. the first day I just see spotting of blood then after two days it starts flowing normally. When do I start counting the first day of my period – is it from the day of the spotting or when I started flowing fully? Please help me out. Thanks.
I have a lot questions to ask because i want to give birth this year
Had c section last Jan13. I saw my first period mar 3. Unfortunately, until now Apr14 still my period didn’t come. So confused.
HI Belldhundhy, it’s quite possible that your body is still getting back to it’s regular cycle. This can take a few cycles after you have a baby. Unless there is a possibility that you could be pregnant again, give it about a week and go from there.
