Effect Of Diet On The Menstrual Cycle?
Afternoon,. I have been on a diet for a month ago. This month her period is earlier than the usual date. What is the effect of diet? Suggest me whether during menstruation just continue the diet or stop first until menstruation is complete. Thank you
Excessive diet can indeed cause disruption of hormonal balance, including hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle, so that it can trigger menstrual disorders. Menstrual disorders that occur can be delayed menstruation, short menstrual spacing, excessive menstruation, or minimal menstruation. If you go on a strict diet, there is a possibility of menstrual disorders that occur related to hormonal imbalances due to excessive dieting. If this is the case, you should re-arrange the diet to be more healthy and balanced. But if you follow a balanced diet, there is actually no problem if the diet is continued, also including during menstruation.
In addition to the influence of diet, menstrual disorders can also occur due to various other factors such as:
Tiredness due to strenuous exercise Excessive weight loss Drastic or too fast Stress Obesity Side effects of contraceptive use Thyroid hormone disorders Problems in the reproductive organs (myoma, endometriosis, uterine polyps, cervical inflammation) Abnormalities of blood clots To maintain the balance of hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle, the following recommendations that you can do at home:
Set a balanced diet pattern Keep eating regularly (eat little but often) Increase consumption of fruit and water Exercising regularly Avoid excessive activity or exercise Adequate rest Minimize stress But if menstrual complaints persist, you should consult this with a gynecologist , so you can track the cause. If menstrual disorders are suspected to originate from problems in the reproductive organs, your doctor may be able to recommend supporting tests to confirm them, such as ultrasound or blood tests. Thus proper handling can be given to you according to the underlying cause. If you have difficulty regulating the right diet, you can also consult a nutrition specialist doctor so that you can be helped to prepare a healthy and balanced diet.
