Menstrual cycles are something that is still considered a taboo subject in many countries, including India. Men are awkward to talk about it, while women want to talk about it, and this has created a dynamic that is not palatable to everyone. And while the acceptance for this completely biological process is slowly growing among the masses, it is still a long way from being talked about as something regular or normal.

It is no secret that menstrual cycles, more popularly called periods, lead to all kinds of uncomfortable sensations in women. This is well documented via out knowledge of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), which includes all the common issues of this condition, including fatigue and mild cramping. These symptoms do normally wash away when the period begins, but this could also mean that other major menstrual problems may come to the fore.

When menstruation is too light/too heavy, or when a cycle does not occur at all, this points to some bigger problems in the body, which could be the reason for this abnormality. However, one has to remember that a “normal” menstrual cycle differs for each woman, and this makes it important for the women to tune into their bodies and consult the doctor if there are any changes in the normal cycle.

Some of the common menstrual problems that could hit women are:

  • Premenstrual Syndrome: Known around the world as PMS, this happens one or two weeks before periods begin, and leads to a variety of physical and emotional symptoms in women. Some others feel few to no symptoms at all. PMS can cause bloating, irritability, backaches, headaches, breast soreness, acne, food cravings, excessive fatigue, depression, anxiety, feelings of stress, insomnia, constipation, diarrhea, mild stomach cramps.
    Different symptoms could be experienced by women each month, while the severity of symptoms may also vary. PMS can be uncomfortable, but not worrisome until and unless it hampers normal activities.
  • Heavy Periods: Another common menstrual problem, a heavy period is also called menorrhagia. It makes women bleed more than usual, while also having a period of longer than the average span of five to seven days. The chief cause of this condition is the imbalance in hormone levels, particularly progesterone and estrogen.
    Heavy or irregular menstrual can also be caused due to vaginal infections, inflammation of the cervix, puberty, noncancerous uterus tumors (fibroids), underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism) and changes in diet or exercise.
  • Absent Periods: As the name suggests, this happens when women do not get their period. It is also known as amenorrhea, and primary amenorrhea is when women don’t get their first period by age 16. It could be caused by a problem with the pituitary gland, a delay in puberty or a congenital defect of the female reproductive system. Secondary amenorrhea is the condition of not getting regular periods for six months or more.
    Common causes of both these types of amenorrhea in teens are ovarian cysts, overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism), anorexia, sudden weight gain or loss, stopping birth control and pregnancy. For adults, the common causes are mostly different like a premature ovarian failure, pelvic inflammatory disease (a reproductive infection), stopping birth control, pregnancy, breastfeeding, menopause.
    Also to remember is that a missed period could mean the woman is pregnant. If there is suspicion of the same, the woman should take a pregnancy test. A drugstore pregnancy test could help confirm this, but women can get more accurate results by waiting for a missed your period by at least one day before taking the test.
  • Painful Periods: In this case, the period is not only lighter or heavier than usual but also painful. During PMS, cramps are normal, while they also happen when the uterus contracts as the period begin. However, pain can be unbearable in this condition, also called dysmenorrhea, and such a menstruation is could point to an underlying medical problem like fibroids, pelvic inflammatory disease or abnormal tissue growth outside of the uterus (endometriosis).

There are lots of medicines that could help reduce or prevent pains during these menstrual issues, and we will look at one such drug, called M2 Tone Syrup.
