Common Causes of Irregular Periods
Every woman’s period is slightly different. Although your period may not be the exact same as someone else you know, it’s likely that you are aware of when it’s irregular or when something is causing problems.
Irregular periods have many causes, but it’s not always necessary to panic and visit the emergency room. The first step, of course, is to figure out if you’re pregnant. If not, then you can start considering what other factors might be affecting your period. As always, we advise you to consult our women’s health care services for a detailed consultation.
To find out what may be causing irregular periods, see the list of common causes below.
1. Hormonal Birth Control
4. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
5. Thyroid Problems
Unfortunately, there is no cure for endometriosis and it can only be diagnosed by exploratory surgery. You can treat the symptoms with medication or hormone therapy, but no long-term solution exists.
7. Weight Fluctuations
Oftentimes, people with eating disorders struggle with irregular periods. Your doctor can help you find the right treatment whether you have intentionally gained/lost weight or not.
