No Menses - Know Reasons Behind It!

The time you missed your period, you may go through a range of emotions. If you have been attempting to get pregnant, your heart may fill with joy and hope. Although, if that is not what you want, you may feel frustrated and stressed out even though it is likely that you are not pregnant. However, pregnancy is not the only cause of missing a period. There can be a great number of possibilities that may lead to missing a period.

Here is a list of common causes of missing a period:

  1. Pregnancy: Sometimes it is exactly what you are expecting, i.e. you can be pregnant. The early symptoms of pregnancy are relatable to the sensation of getting your periods. The cramping, the bloating of your stomach and tenderness in the breast tissues, are all very similar. If your period has been delayed for over 10 days, it is suggested to get a pregnancy kit at home and check for the result. It is advised to wait until 10 days; otherwise, the result may not come out as accurate.
  2. Illness: In certain ailments, such as a fever or common cold, your body will concentrate on functions that are vital and your periods are not one of them. This can result in missing a period.
  3. Stress: Stress can create an array of problems in your body, be it excessive weight gain, headache or acne. When you are stressed out, your body produces a hormone called cortisol in excess. Cortisol is produced in the body in small quantities but when you are stressed out, it goes on overdrive and your brains start to differentiate between the functions that are essential and the ones that are not. The blood supply to various parts of the body can increase like the muscles and the brain. This means the other functions such as metabolism and your reproductive system will be subdued. That is how stress can make you miss your period.
  4. Change in weight: If you suddenly lose a lot of weight, without maintaining a healthy diet, you deprive your body of the basic nutrition it needs. This under-nourishment can affect the production of oestrogen, which is directly involved in maintaining your uterine lining. On the contrary, if you gain too much weight, your body starts producing an excessive amount of oestrogen. This will stop your uterine lining from degrading and will stop your periods. It can also cause heavy and irregular bleeding.
  5. Excessive workout: This is commonly seen in athletes or ballet dancers who maintain a rigorous workout regime. This over- work out can make your body stop producing oestrogen that causes disruption in your menstrual cycle.

Menstrual Disorders - How Can Homeopathy Tackle Them In Women?

For some women, a period can be more than just uncomfortable. There are a number of menstrual problems that could affect women. These range from irregular periods to excessive bleeding and premenstrual syndrome. The good news is that homeopathy can be used to effectively treat these problems. Homeopathy is a holistic form of treatment that addresses the root cause of the problem instead of the symptoms. Additionally, it has negligible side effects.

Here are a few homeopathic forms of treatment for menstrual problems.

1. Sepia: Sepia can be used to treat late menstruation as well as scanty blood flow. It is also helpful is the period is accompanied by pain and a sense of weight in the pelvic area and lower back. This can also be used to treat irritability and depression.

2. Pulsatilla: Pulsatilla is helpful in cases where menstrual bleeding causes substantial weight fluctuations, bloating and water retention. It can also be used to treat irregular periods and scanty or excess blood flow. Pulsatilla is also used as a form of treatment for the severe griping pains that can accompany menstrual flow.

3. Cimicifuga: This is used to treat irregular periods and painful periods. It also treats mental unrest, nervousness and irritability triggered by menstruation.

4. Lycopodium: In some cases, delayed menses can last longer than normal and have abnormally heavy blood flow. In such cases, lycopodium is an effective homeopathic remedy.

5. Belladonna: Excessive menstrual bleeding and early menses can be treated with belladonna. This type of menses is also accompanied by intense pain that is relieved by standing and cramps in the back and arms. Belladonna is also extremely useful in acute cases of endometriosis and inflammation of the ovaries.

6. Creosote: Excessive blood flow that is intermittent and preceded by abdominal bloating can be treated using Creosote. This blood flow is usually dark brown in colour and accompanied by an offensive odour. Creosote can also be used against ulcerations in the female genital organs, burning pain and soreness.

7. Helonias: Pain extending from the back of the uterus and loss of muscle strength in the genital organs can be treated with helonias. It can also be used to treat leucorrhoea or dark, offensive vaginal discharge as well as displacement of the uterus.

When prescribing medication for a menstrual problem, a homeopathic doctor not only looks at the symptoms presented but also the personality and lifestyle of the patient. Hence what suits one person may not have the same effect on another. Hence, if you are facing a menstrual problem, it is best to consult a doctor at the earliest.

Menstrual Cycle - Important Aspects About It!

Menstrual cycles are a part and parcel of a woman’s life. Every woman knows the reasons behind these cycles and what to do during this time. But there are many other facets that are unknown to most women. This article highlights five important aspects of your menstrual cycle which you were probably not aware of till now.

  1. Cycles do not protect women from pregnancy: For ages, it has been pointed out that a woman cannot get pregnant during the menstruation period. This is nothing, but a sheer myth. To be precise, these cycles occur only when an egg is released from the ovary. Thus, intercourse during this time would actually increase the chances of getting pregnant rather than reduce it. Male sperms can survive for up to three days in the female body and having intercourse when the female egg is released would allow for the fertilisation of the egg and the sperm, thereby making the woman pregnant.
  2. False periods: Many times, you take contraceptive pills in order to make sure that you do not get pregnant. The process of contraception works in a manner that prevents the body from releasing an egg. This means that the process of ovulation is prevented for the month. But the lining of the uterus, which is formed due to layers of blood, cannot be prevented by the contraceptives. Hence, even though no ovulation occurs, one still gets their cycles as the uterus lining discharges itself.
  3. Iron deficiency: Menstrual cycles cause loss of the significant amount of blood from the body. This leads to the loss of iron from the body as blood is a rich source of iron. Especially, for women who suffer from any form of anaemia, it is in their best interest to take iron supplements.
  4. Insomnia is of concern: Sleepless nights and insomnia is a matter of concern during your menstrual cycles. Sleep is brought about by progesterone. But lack of sleep would mean that the level of progesterone is low in the body. It is a sign that these levels need to be checked by a medical practitioner. Sleeplessness can trigger additional problems related to menstrual cycles, including heavy bleeding.
  5. Check oestrogen levels: High oestrogen levels could result in severe back pain and heavy bleeding during your cycles. This is an indication that the hormone level is high and needs to be controlled.

Thus, these are some of the interesting facts that you need to know about your menstrual cycles. None of them are really threatening and can be controlled via medicines or supplements under medical supervision.
