Irregular menstruation is one of the commonly seen problems these days. Many women are suffering from irregular menstruation at early ages not to mention an early onset of menopause by the time they are 30. I am not trying to scare you off just bringing the ugly side of the body. This article cover causes and Home Remedies for Irregular Periods.
During the initial years after menstruation starts, it is common to have irregular or missed periods as the hormones takes it own time in controlling the menstruation cycle. Even when women are reaching menopause, irregular or missed periods are common.
There are many reasons which are the causes of irregular menstruation that can really differ from person to person. Generally, it is normal to have 11 to 13 menstrual periods or even more a year. But when you miss periods, that’s when you need to undergo a checkup to find out what’s bothering the body.
What causes irregular periods?
So, what exactly causes the body to throw itself haywire making you skip periods? Well, apart from the fact that you can be pregnant, there are a lot of causes that provoke missing periods. Let’s look at some of them.
- Eating disorders such as bolimia or anorexia
Obesity is one of the topmost causes that stirs irregular periods. How? When you tend to overeat, the fat cells in the body overproduces estrogen which misleads the body to believe that you are pregnant thereby putting a pause to menstruation. Obesity can also lead to insulin resistance where the body cells are unable to utilize the insulin that the body produces which can also lead to PCOS.
Society can be sometimes cruel to ‘fat’ people by neither fixing the core problem nor accepting the person completely. People who are obese tend to go through many problems making it emotionally difficult for them to face people. Apart from mind numbing factors such as depression or anxiety, this puts a lot of stress on their mind provoking them to go in for eating disorders which can lead to irregular menstruation.
People having eating disorders carry much higher risk because vomiting as soon as they consume food probably makes them feel that this can lead to weight loss. But it can also prove fatal. Apart from this, it can lead to many diseases such as body swelling, bowel problems, depression or irregular periods. This is because of poor diet which makes the period irregular or stop it forever which can lead to infertility.
Medications are also one of the facts that can lead to change in menstruation. Many people consume diet pills or weight gain pills, banned drugs which can affect their menstruation days to a large extent. It is always best to stay away from unnecessary medications available over the counter and embrace natural remedies that will work for you without any side effects.

I am an aeronautical engineer by profession. Between my graduation and my first recruitment, I had a space to fill. The letters would come in months. In the meanwhile i did want to do something and my FIRST job was indeed as a content writer. A student of science trying her hands on art could be disastrous but it was a good one. I learned more than engineering and flying. Health, gadgets, food , travel and a whole lot of things came flooding to me in the form of words. Writing did happen and in a nice way.
