Irregular Menstruation And Increased Heart Rate?
Hello .. r nI am 20 years old. My period was often irregular, sometimes I had periods but only spots (not red blood). Several times I missed my period for 2 months. I have experienced irregular menses since about 4 years ago. R nIn addition, my resting heart rate is always higher than 85, and often reaches 100s, but my blood pressure is not high, tends to be normal to low .. my breath tends to be difficult because of my sinus, does it have an impact on my heart rate? r nI myself am 163cm tall and weigh 71kg .. does my weight have an effect on what I’m experiencing? I guess if you want to consult a doctor, what good is a specialist?
Hello Alexandra, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Irregular menstruation can be caused by many possibilities, the following are some of them:
Certain physiological conditions that interfere with hormonal conditions, such as excessive stress, too strict diet, excessive weight gain or loss, excessive exercise, pregnancy and breastfeeding, the period of perimenopause
Certain diseases that cause hormonal disorders such as PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism
Diseases of the reproductive organs such as infections, fibroids, ovarian cysts, uterine polyps, etc.
Use of hormonal contraceptives
Use of certain drugs that have an effect on hormonal conditions
The increase in heart rate that you experience may be related to menstrual disorders that you are experiencing, but it may not be. Conditions such as hyperthyroidism can cause menstrual disorders accompanied by an increase in heart rate. But to be really sure, it's a good idea to check with a Gynecologist. Your obstetrician will ask further about other symptoms you have, as well as perform additional examinations such as ultrasound, hormonal examinations, and so on.
For now, a few things you can do:
Avoid stress if you are currently experiencing high stress
Exercise regularly in sufficient quantities and not excessive, do aerobic exercise at least 30-40 minutes a day
Maintain an ideal body weight, if you are overweight, try to lose weight slowly, don't go on a too strict diet. Eat a balanced nutritious diet in moderation.
Drink in sufficient quantities, at least 2-3 liters per day
Get enough rest and sleep
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
