Every woman goes through menstruation problems at one time or another, though the degree or say severity of pain may vary from person to person. For some of us it is a cause of great discomfort which hinders the day to day life. When I was a teen I suffered from painful menstruation myself. I could not go out infact I did not wanted to go out myself and be seen in such a miserable condition.
Though, I still hate that time of the month but I don’t know why my perspective towards it always changes as soon as I remember what it does for us ladies… getting rid of impure blood from our body.. remember. All things have a price and these discomforts are the price we pay to get our system cleaned.
Common menstruation problems include:
• Cramps: During first few days of periods many women face abdominal cramps. These cramps are caused due to the presence of a chemical (prostaglandin) in our body which makes the uterus muscles contract. These contractions can be severe at times and a doctor must be consulted.
• Irregular periods: Hormonal changes are the cause of irregular menstruation cycle among women. Generally the menstruation cycle is of 28 days, although for some it can be of 21 days. Skipping a period is not a matter of concern until you are sexually active or this happens on a regular basis.
• Delayed menarche: This is basically a genetic factor. Some girls start having menstruation cycle at an early age (9-10 years) while some don’t until their teens. This should be a matter of concern if a girl does not have her periods by three years after starting her puberty.
