Well, every woman really does not be excited on her periods but once she senses any difference in her period cycle, She will starting having different thoughts on the reasons causing her delayed period.
An irregular period is common in a woman due to many reasons in her lifestyle, But too much delay should not be ignored.
Your menstrual cycle begins on the first day of your menstruation and continues up to 2-7 days, but not including, the first day of your next period. Women’s cycles range from 21-40 days or more, with an average of around 28 days.
There are several other factors that may cause your periods to stop or to become lighter or less frequent, such as:
- Excessive exercise
- Being underweight or excessive dieting
- Feeling upset or stressed
- Severe long-term illness
- A hormonal imbalance
- A thyroid disorder
- Stopping or starting the contraceptive pill or other hormonal contraception(including the patch, IUS (Mirena) coil, implant (rods) or injection)
- Some medicines
- Disorders of the womb or ovaries.
Remedies can be your solution:
- Unripe Papaya. Green, unripe papaya is considered useful in regulating menstrual flow as it helps contract muscle fibers in the uterus
- Reduce body fat through diet and exercise.
- Manage stress. Try meditation or a gratitude journal
- Apply warm Castor oil.
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS):
About 1 in 15 women have PCOS, a hormone-imbalance condition associated with insulin resistance. In PCOS, egg follicles form but they don’t release, leading to insufficient progesterone and sometimes heavy bleeding, Stanton explains. Even if you don’t have PCOS or insulin resistance, it’s important to shed excess weight. “Women who have a lot of belly fat have a lot of estrogens,” she says.
The earliest menopause signs—including hormone imbalance and failure to ovulate—can start in your late 30s and lead to heavy bleeding, says Pick. Chronic stress worsens the imbalance because the adrenal glands direct cortisol production toward stress response instead of using cortisol as a building block for progesterone.
- A health condition or infection:
Structural problems, such as endometriosis, uterine polyps, and fibroids; low thyroid function; prolonged antibiotic use; and even infections like chlamydia and gonorrhea can lead to irregular, heavier periods.
