Treatment for Irregular Periods
Many women at different stages of their life experience irregular periods. The standard 28 to 35 day menstrual cycle can deviate, with some women getting their periods more often than every 21 days, coming late or skipping months all together. If you are experiencing irregular menstruation cycles and want to explore natural treatments to regulate your periods, come see our naturopathic doctor at Wholistic Medicine Specialists of Atlanta. We offer treatment for irregular periods and other menstrual issues.
Female teenagers are prone to irregular periods as their body adjusts to their menstrual cycle, but many young women become regular by their early twenties. Every 21-28 days, their period arrives and lasts about five days. When periods begin coming more frequently or are delayed by weeks or even months, it is a sign of issues. Irregular menstruation should never be ignored. It can be caused by hormonal fluctuations, pregnancy, menopause or even serious health problems like cancer.
Causes of Irregular Menstruation
When you have irregular menstruation, there is often something unbalanced in your body. It can be physical, hormonal, emotional or environmental factors that are interrupting your body’s natural cycles. Common causes of irregular menstruation include:
- Low body fat or excessive weight loss
- Intense exercise
- Hormonal imbalance
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Uterine polyps
Treatment for irregular periods will depend on the cause of menstrual disruption. Overall wellness is the first step to restoring regular menstrual cycles. Healthy weight, nutrition, hormone balance and lifestyle can all contribute to achieving regular periods and optimum reproductive health.
