Medical conditions affecting the nervous system or the reproductive organ can cause irregular monthly cycle, the condition where the woman gets the flow six to eight months in a year, or she may get it too early, just in 20 days. PCOS is one of the commonest causes for such condition.
Some women get less number of monthly cycles because the body is too thin or has low fat deposits and some times, the change in fat stores in the female body where the woman loses too much weight can cause it. Other reasons include – intake of birth control pills, stress and surgeries to fix the problem of reproductive system (which cause uncontrolled bleeding).
Some female athletes suffer from such changes because of rigorous physical activities, workouts and exercising. Change in brain constitution where the hypothalamus slows or stops producing the related chemicals can affect the monthly cycle and the impact of prolactin secreting pituitary can also cause it. Health issues in infancy or in family and even environmental effects in growing age can cause such changes. The best ways to overcome irregular periods is to regulate lifestyle activities – one need to take healthy foods, eat on time and exercise regularly.
