What is irregular periods?
Practically, Cycles between 23-35 days can be considered as normal. If a woman gets her period very few times (only one to four times) a year, or she might have periods that occur 2-3 times in a month and involve spotting or extremely heavy flow. Alternatively, she may have heavy episodes of bleeding every 2-3 months, then these type of period cycles can be called as irregular periods.
What Causes Irregular periods?
Primarily, hormonal imbalance causes irregular periods. There are various direct and indirect reasons behind the hormonal imbalance such as diseases like PCOD or Thyroid disorders, extreme weight loss, medications, over exercises, uterine abnormalities, excessive smoking or excessive use of caffeine or alcohol etc.
According to Ayurveda, imbalance in doshas is one of the primary reasons for irregular periods. If we say it in most generalized manner then the reason behind excessive menstruation could be related to imbalance or aggravation of pitta dosha and the reason behind the scanty menstruation could be relate to imbalance or aggravation of vata dosha. Imbalance of dhatus (specifically Rakta-Blood Dhatu) also plays an important role.
