Hello Emon, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Basically the menstrual cycle in women will be different. Normally the menstrual cycle ranges every 21-35 days with menstrual duration 3-5 days. To find out your menstrual cycle, you can make a mark on your calendar. But not everyone has a regular cycle.
One of the menstrual disorders is oligomenorhea, where menstrual disorders are characterized by the number of menstrual cycles that are below normal, for example, about only 8 times in a year. If you experience irregular menstrual disorders, the condition can be called an oligomenorrhea, where normally the menstrual cycle will occur once every 21-35 days but in oligomenorrhea then you will experience menstruation can be more than 35 days.
Some conditions that might cause oligomenorrhea include:
At the age of adolescence or when women will enter the age of menopause, if at an age of oligomenorrhea is a reasonable condition due to hormonal instability
Side effects of hormonal contraception. some women may experience fewer menstruation for 3-6 months after using hormonal contraceptives such as birth control pills, birth control injections, implants and so on. Even the side effects of hormonal contraception can cause menstruation to stop completely
Excessive exercise or activity
Certain medical conditions such as diabetes or thyroid disease
Nutritional deficiency, or poor nutritional status
But if you have regular menstruation before, and if you are already sexually active. The cause of late menstruation can also be caused by the condition of pregnancy, especially if found early symptoms of pregnancy. To help ensure pregnancy tests such as a test pack and ultrasound can be done to the obstetrician and obstetrician
In addition, you can further consult the causes of irregular menstruation to the obstetrician or midwifery, for further examination and evaluation further.
