A period in young women can be a difficult experience for some. Many common problems arise with menstruation, which is usually experienced each month and will last for 5 to 7 days. Some of these problems can be normal but others may need help from a healthcare professional.
1. Irregular Periods
It’s very common to have an irregular period during the first 2 years after the start of menstruation. The cycle of menstruation is complicated as the body adjusts to all the bodywork. Eventually, it would become regular. If nothing has changed or noticed an extremely irregular cycle, see a doctor right away.
2. Heavy Periods
If a period becomes too heavy, it affects the quality of life and may even lead to anemia resulting in feeling tired most of the time, dizziness, and struggling with physical activity. A blood test is usually done when a person has heavy periods. Watch out for these signs:
3. Painful Menstruation
This is one of the most common reasons why young women seek medical help. The prostaglandin is released during your cycle which causes painful uterine contractions resulting in cramps. A warm compress and over-the-counter medications can help eliminate cramping.
