Irregular of Menses



         Generally, menstrual excretion comes after 28 days but sometime this period is 20 days and sometimes about 45 days. Irregularities of menses reduce the power of conceiving or reproduction. There are two consequences of menses-   

  1. One ovum comes out from the ovaries on every month by which one embryo develops in one time.
  2. Preparing intera uterine membrane for the establishment of fertilized ovum on the definite time of the month.

          Health of uterus becomes clear from the menses and the health of endocrine glands which control ovaries and pituitary gland. Faults of the reproduction system of women are included in excessive menstrual excretion. Some such faults are as:


         If a woman does not face menses, such condition is called primary amenorrhoea. It occurs because of abnormal development of ovaries or uterus of the disorders of endocrines, pituitary gland or hypothalamus or hereditary causes.

        In the second type of amenorrhoea, sometimes, one or two menstrual excretions are not normal in the life. Mostly, heavy weight or less weight of the woman becomes the cause of this problem. Obesity disturbs the system of ovaries and in the loss of appetite there is too much loss in the weight and it becomes the cause of amenorrhoea. When the cause of amenorrhoea is not less weight, want of hormones of pituitary and ovaries is the cause of it. a woman who does much physical work or she is an athlete, she can become the victim of amenorrhoea.


          Sometimes, symptoms of menstrual excretion becomes so fast that many women do not do any work for one two days. There is no physical cause of dysmenorrhoea. Such type of pain occurs because of the contraction of the uterus related to local absence of blood of the muscles of the uterus. Prostaglandins excite the contraction of the uterus but hormones do not do this activity because of the presence of progesterone. The level of hormones in the latter half of menstrual excretion and there is no contraction in the uterus.

          But the level of progesterone reduces very much rapidly and the level of prostaglandins increases. The uterus contracts and removes its cover by which there is pain during menses. There are many symptoms in this type of menstrual excretion as headache, belching, diarrhea, constipation and constant urination, etc. Second type of dysmenorrhoea is because of the deformation of pelvic region. By the way, there are some other causes too as tumor of uterus, cells of the ovary, and inflammatory diseases of the sacrum, intra uterus misplacement and intra uterine organs.

Bleeding from the uterus:

          Irregular menses, scanty menses, constant menses, bleeding between two menstrual excretions and bleeding after menses and emotional imbalance due to disturbed hormonal level of other abnormalities of menses and tumor of uterus can be the cause of bleeding from the uterus.

Symptoms of menstrual excretion:

          Symptoms before menses or during menses which originate because of physical or mental trouble are called group of symptoms. Such symptoms increase with menstrual excretion in the beginning but such symptoms disappear dramatically. Such symptoms are as swelling, gaining of weight, and swelling in the breast, flatulence, backache, and joint ache, and constipation, dryness of the skin, mental depression, madness, headache and other symptoms. Besides, desire for eating sweet or salty substances. Menstrual excretion is related with hormones of the ovary by which menses come on time. These symptoms are not the result of the nature change and the basic cause of the situation is not clear too.
