Periods play an important role in the life of women. In this way the body sheds the lining of the womb (uterus) and the menstrual blood flows from the uterus through the small opening in the cervix, passing out of the body through the vagina. Some women do not experience difficulties. But there are some who do. The main causes of problems are irregular periods.
These are 5 conditions to raise awareness when you experience abnormal menstrual periods:
Light flow – this may indicate that you have pituitary gland or thyroid problems except if you are on pills. You have to see a doctor.
Sudden bleeding – this may be due to cervical or uterine polyps. This may indicate cancer, but it is still normal when you use pills.
Unbearable cramps – they may appear for several days, but you have to be cautious as it can be a sign of something dangerous. Check it with your doctor.
Late or abnormal periods – if you have no chance of pregnancy and have abnormal periods can be a sign of abnormal imbalance. This means that your ovulation is irregular. You might have PCOS which can be the cause why it is so hard to determine your fertile days.
Saturated color – if in case your discharge is like a cranberry juice, then it means that you have normal secretion, otherwise, it may mean that you have estrogen imbalance.
If in case you have uncomfortable feelings and are not sure what it is, then you should better consult a doctor.
