Causes And Ways To Overcome Menstrual Cycle Delays?
Hello, I want to ask. Is there a problem with menstruation 1 year 1x but menstruation is a month. But not pregnant. What is the cause
Good afternoon jackyres. Thank you in advance for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Menstruation is basically a process of shedding the lining of the uterus due to the absence of sperm that can fertilize an egg so that no conception will stick to the uterine wall. This process is greatly influenced by reproductive hormones and various other factors so that an imbalance / disturbance in these hormones can cause disruption in the menstrual cycle. Normally the menstrual cycle will last around 2-7 days with a cycle of around 21-35 days. Some people can experience irregular menstrual cycles, either too late or too soon.
Many things can be a factor in causing a delay in a person's menstrual cycle, including:
- Psychological stress
- Weight gain / Obesity
- Drastic weight loss, generally experienced in people who experience eating disorders to anorexia / bulimia.
- During breastfeeding, postpartum mothers who are breastfeeding will produce the hormone prolactin, this hormone can disrupt the menstrual cycle. Apart from breastfeeding mothers, there are several diseases that can also produce excess prolactin, such as kidney disease and tumors in the pituitary gland in the brain.
- Use of contraceptives, generally in the use of hormonal contraceptives, which can interfere with the menstrual cycle.
- Other diseases such as PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome), thyroid disease, and other chronic diseases (diabetes, celiac disease). PCOS is a syndrome in which there is a disruption in the body's hormones and metabolic system, causing disruption of a person's menstrual cycle.
- Smoking habit
- Early menopause.
If the condition you are experiencing has been going on for a long time, it's good to be able to see a doctor. The doctor will perform a thorough history taking of complaints and a history of related diseases as well as a physical examination to determine the possible causes and diagnosis of this disease. Besides that, other supporting examinations can also be done, such as hormone tests, imaging to see the condition of the reproductive organs etc.
I hope this information is helpful. thanks.
