Irregular menstruation is very common in our daily life and has many manifestations. It is a response to physiological abnormalities in women, and we must pay attention to it, especially the occurrence of diseases.
Is menstrual irregularities a disease?
Irregular menstruation, also known as irregular menstruation, is a common gynecological disease characterized by abnormal menstrual cycles or bleeding volume, which can be accompanied by abdominal pain and systemic symptoms before and during menstruation. The cause may be organic lesions or functional disorders.
Types of menstrual irregularities
1. Early Physiological Day: Normally, the menstrual cycle is normal, but it suddenly shortens for more than 21 days and lasts for more than 2 consecutive weeks, but the menstrual volume is normal. The basal body temperature of ovulatory dysfunctional uterine bleeding is biphasic. The follicular phase is short, only 7-8 days, and the luteal phase is shorter than 10 days. The temperature rise is less than 0.5 ℃.
2. Delayed menstruation: Regular menstruation, with menstrual errors lasting for more than 7 days, or even 40-50 days per cycle. Menstrual cycle lasts for more than 2 consecutive cycles, but menstrual volume is normal. In ovulation patients, the basal body temperature is biphasic, but the follicular phase is long and the high temperature phase is low. In ovulation patients, the basal body temperature is monophasic.
3. Menstrual extension: The menstrual period is normal, normal, but prolonged, with a period exceeding 7 days or even 2 weeks of cleansing. People with inflammation usually have lower abdominal pain, which worsens during physiological days. They usually have a large amount of vaginal discharge, a yellow white color, a strong texture, and a taste. Patients with corpus luteum atrophy and prolonged endometrial repair with excessive menstrual flow still experience a small amount of persistent vaginal bleeding after normal menstrual periods.
4. Irregular menstruation: Irregular menstruation, early or delayed menstruation, with a cycle shorter than 21 or 35 days.
5. Ovulation bleeding: The bleeding that occurs between two regular menstrual cycles, which is caused by a brief decrease in estrogen levels and the loss of hormone support in the endometrium, resulting in endometrial detachment.
Gynecological diseases caused by menstrual irregularities
1. Premenstrual syndrome: This symptom often occurs within 7-14 days before menstruation, and sometimes persists until after menstruation. Some women have extremely dangerous signals of physical pain and emotional changes during menstruation. Due to dysmenorrhea and excessive emotional fluctuations, it seriously affects women's relationships with those around them, which is also the most common problem that every woman must face and solve.
2. Dysmenorrhea: Many women experience dysmenorrhea during their menstrual period. Although there is no basis for any disease, once the pain occurs, it requires life. Common symptoms include back pain, leg pain, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, etc. This may be the result of excessive secretion of prostaglandins or uterine contractions.
