Understanding Irregular Periods

A normal menstrual cycle typically ranges from 21 to 35 days, with an average duration of 5 days of bleeding. However, irregular periods can deviate from this pattern, causing periods to occur too frequently, infrequently, or even leading to bleeding between periods. Various symptoms, including heavy bleeding, menstrual cramps, and hormonal fluctuations, can accompany irregular periods.

Causes of Irregular Periods

There are several potential causes of irregular periods, ranging from hormonal imbalances to structural abnormalities:

Frequent Periods (Polymenorrhea)

  • Perimenopause: As women approach menopause, menstrual cycles may become closer together before eventually stopping altogether. Hormonal therapy or contraception can help regulate periods during this transition.
  • Medications: Certain medications, such as blood thinners, can cause irregular vaginal bleeding. Adjusting medication dosage may help alleviate symptoms.
  • Infections: Infections such as chlamydia or endometritis can lead to vaginal bleeding that may be mistaken for menstrual bleeding. Antibiotics are typically prescribed to treat the underlying infection.
  • Contraception: Long-acting contraception methods like IUDs or hormonal implants may cause spotting during the initial months of use. This usually resolves with time, but if bothersome, consultation with a healthcare provider is recommended.

Infrequent Periods (Oligomenorrhea)

  • Hormonal Imbalance: Conditions such as thyroid disease or pituitary dysfunction can disrupt ovulation and lead to infrequent or irregular periods. Hormonal therapy or medication management may be necessary to regulate menstrual cycles.
  • Pregnancy: Pregnancy is the most common reason for a missed period and should always be ruled out as the first step in diagnosing irregular periods.
  • Androgen Excess: Conditions like polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) can lead to elevated levels of male hormones, resulting in irregular menstrual cycles. Hormonal testing and physical exams are often used to diagnose and manage PCOS

Bleeding Between Periods (Intermenstrual Bleeding):

  • Structural Abnormalities: Issues such as uterine polyps or thickening/thinning of the uterine lining can cause bleeding between periods. Diagnostic procedures like ultrasound or hysteroscopy may be used to identify and treat these abnormalities.
  • Hormonal Changes: Changes in hormonal levels, such as those associated with menopause or contraception, can lead to thinning of vaginal tissue and subsequent bleeding. Medications or hormonal therapy may be prescribed to manage symptoms and restore vaginal health.
