Sometimes women have problems in their menstrual cycle – called menstrual irregularities. They may not get periods, get periods too frequently, have unpredictable menstrual bleeding, or they may have painful periods.

When not caused by pregnancy, menstrual irregularities are usually a sign of a larger condition or problem. There are many conditions that can cause menstrual irregularities.

Menstrual Problems causes

Premenstrual Tension and Menstrual Cramps

A few days before menstruation, some women become nervous and irritable. They suffer from depression, headaches, fullness in the breasts, insomnia, and swelling in the lower extremities. This may be due to a hormonal imbalance. These problems cease within twenty-four hours of the start of the menstrual flow.

Dysmenorrhoea

Painful menstruation, as it is called in medical parlance, is a common condition. The pain may be felt either two or three days before or immediately before or during the flow. This may also be due to a hormonal imbalance.

Amenorrhoea or Stoppage of Menstrual Flow

This is natural during pregnancy and at the menopause, but abnormal at any other time. It denotes a debilitated and devitalized condition of the body. The main causes contributing towards this condition are anemia, worry, grief, fright, or other serious emotional disturbances; malformation of the womb; tuberculosis; displacement of the womb; and debility, especially after a serious illness.

Menorrhagia or Excessive Menstrual Flow

This is common in some women. A variety of causes may be responsible for this trouble, including fibroids.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Uterine fibroids, pain, heavy bleeding and irregular periods?
    I have multiple large and small fibroids, severe endometriosis, severe adhesions (they thought I’d had chemo). I used to have very regular periods but they are now irregular and heavy with a long pms time around when I expect a period. I was getting one heavy one about every other month having to change pads every 15 minutes for one day of it. And a lighter one in between with alot of spotting. But sometimes I can have pms symptoms like I’m starting and not start for a couple weeks. (They say it’s inoperable.) Is this common? What should I be worried about? What can I do?

    • ANSWER:
      I had this same problem in 2005, I experienced heavy bleeding and it continued for about a week, quit with just spotting and then back to bleeding again. This was so bad it put me in a very weak state and finally decided to visit obgyn and had blood test and ultra sound done. I was so low on blood that I had to have 4 pints replaced due to so much blood loss. The ultra sound showed a fibroid tumor. I had a total abdominal hysterectomy in September 2005 and the tumor removed. The fibroid tumor was causing the main problem for me, making my periods unbearable. Now I feel fine health wise, my blood count is back up, but of course I went straight to menopause, but I’m handling it the best I can. I wish you luck, have your blood checked for anemia and an ultra sound to see where and how large the fibroids are.

    • ANSWER:
      My wife had the same problem after treatment for fibroids.Your uterus has lost it’s lining from the surgery and is bleeding heavier,because the blood vessels are closer to the surface.Give it a month or two to regain the tissue that was scraped out and see your doctor if you feel faint or light headed from the blood loss.Once you have surgury,it can take weeks for it to heal.Try to rest as much as possible.
