Menstrual Problems


Menstrual Problems Treatment

Menstrual problems refer to any abnormal or uncomfortable symptoms experienced by women during their menstrual cycle. The menstrual cycle is the regular natural process that prepares a woman's body for pregnancy. It involves the shedding of the uterine lining, known as menstruation or a period, typically occurring every 28 to 35 days.

At Borneo Hospital in Thane, we understand the significance of providing comprehensive and compassionate care for women experiencing menstrual problems. We offer effective treatment options for patients' unique needs.

  • Dysmenorrhea (Painful Cramps)
  • Menorrhagia (Heavy Bleeding)

  • Oligomenorrhea (Infrequent Menstruation)

  • Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

Causes Of Irregular Menstruation

There are many possible causes of irregular menstruation. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Perimenopause: This is the time leading up to menopause when your ovaries produce less estrogen. This can cause irregular periods and other symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats.
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): This hormonal disorder affects women of childbearing age. Women with PCOS often have irregular periods and other symptoms such as excess hair growth, acne, and weight gain.
  • Thyroid problems: Both underactive (hypothyroidism) and overactive (hyperthyroidism) thyroids can cause irregular periods.Stress. Stress can disrupt the hormones that regulate your menstrual cycle, leading to irregular periods.
  • Weight loss or gain: Rapid weight loss or gain, especially if it is extreme, can also cause irregular periods.
  • Certain medications: Some medications, such as those used to treat epilepsy or depression, can cause irregular periods as a side effect
  • Medical conditions: Other medical conditions, such as diabetes, lupus, and cancer, can cause irregular periods.

Irregular Periods Treatment

The treatment for irregular periods depends on the underlying cause. Here are some common approaches:

  • Lifestyle changes This is the time leading up to menopause when your ovaries produce less estrogen. This can cause irregular periods and other symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats.
  • Hormonal contraception: Hormonal birth control methods, such as birth control pills, patches, or hormonal intrauterine devices (IUDs), can help regulate menstrual cycles. These methods work by stabilizing hormone levels and regulating the shedding of the uterine lining.
  • Medications: Certain medications, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), may be prescribed to reduce menstrual cramps and regulate the menstrual cycle.
  • Treatment of underlying conditions: If an underlying medical condition is causing irregular periods, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or thyroid disorders, treating the condition may help regulate the menstrual cycle. Depending on the specific condition, this may involve medications, hormonal therapy, or surgery.
  • Hormone therapy: In some cases, hormone therapy may be recommended to regulate the menstrual cycle. This involves taking specific hormones, such as estrogen or progesterone, to induce regular periods.
  • Surgical interventions: In certain situations, surgical procedures may be necessary to address the underlying cause of irregular periods. For example, if polyps or fibroids are present in the uterus, they may need to be removed.

It is essential to consult a healthcare professional to determine the underlying cause of your irregular periods and discuss the most appropriate treatment options.
