At the clinic we answer question all the time about irregular periods. A textbook period happens every 24-29 days, but in truth what is “regular” covers a wide range. Cycles between 23–35 days are very common.
A woman may get her period only one to four times a year. Or she might have periods that occur two to three times in a month and involve spotting or extremely heavy flow.
Alternatively, she may have heavy episodes of bleeding every two to three months. Irregular period are simply what is irregular for you.
The first day a girl's period comes is Day 1 of her cycle. Around Day 5, her pituitary gland tells her ovaries to start preparing one of the eggs they contain for release.
One egg will mature completely. At the same time, the lining of the uterus becomes thick to prepare a nesting place for a fertilized egg in the event that the girl becomes pregnant.
It's actually normal for women to experience irregular cycles infrequently.
Stress or illness can cause a delay in ovulation or menstruation, causing your cycle to be longer, and sometimes shorter, than usual. One or two periods a year that is "off" isn't impressive to be worried about.
However, if your cycles are often irregular, or you've got quite a long time between menstrual cycles, you should see your doctor for an assessment.
Causes of Irregular Period
One of the common causes of an irregular period is stress. Stress is one of the main culprits of irregular periods. If you have been concerned, over worked or angry before your period, chances are that you will experience an irregular period.
Sudden weight gain or weight loss can also result in uneven periods. Diet plays a very vital role in regulating periods.
One of the reasons for a missed period is excessive exercise. This causes a sudden decrease in body fat which in turn leads to a missed period or very scanty spotting instead of a regular period.
Girls who have just begun menstruation, experience irregular periods for up to one year or more. Irregular periods after menarche are nothing to worry about, it's part of the normal body process.
In some women, the onset of menopause causes irregular periods. This too is perfectly natural and there is no reason to be worried.
