General description & overview of regular periods, menstrual cycle, menstrual disorders


Menstruation (a period) is a major stage of puberty in girls; it's one of the many physical signs that a girl is turning into a woman. And like a lot of the other changes associated with puberty, menstruation can be confusing. Some girls can't wait to start their periods, whereas others may feel afraid or anxious. Many girls do not have a complete understanding of a woman's reproductive system or what actually happens during the menstrual cycle, making the process seem even more mysterious.

The menstrual cycle is the process by which a woman’s body gets ready for the chance of a pregnancy each month. Menstruation is the part of a woman’s monthly menstrual cycle in which blood and tissue are discharged from the vagina.  It is also commonly called a period or menstrual period.

About puberty & periods


When girls begin to go through puberty (usually starting between the ages of 8 and 13), their bodies and minds change in many ways. The hormones in their bodies stimulate new physical development, such as growth and breast development. About 2 to 2½ years after a girl's breasts begin to develop; she usually gets her first menstrual period.

About 6 months or so before getting her first period, a girl might notice an increased amount of clear vaginal discharge. This discharge is common. There is no need for a girl to worry about discharge unless it has a strong odor or causes itchiness.

Just as some girls begin puberty earlier or later than others, the same applies to periods. Some girls may start menstruating as early as age 10, but others may not get their first period until they are 15 years old. In the United States, most girls start menstruating at age 12, but girls can start menstruating between the ages of 8 and 16.

The Menstrual Cycle

An average menstrual cycle lasts 28-30 days, counting from the first day of one period to the first day of the next. Normal cycles can vary from 21 to 35 days. Following menarche, menstrual cycles last 21–45 days. After a couple of years, cycles shorten to an adult length of 21–34 days.

In the beginning of the menstrual cycle, each month, after day 5 of your cycle, during the follicular phase, the pituitary gland releases follicle stimulating hormone which helps to stimulate the growth of about 5 to 20 follicles. Each follicle consists of an egg but only one of these follicles will mature into an egg while the other stimulated follicles die. The levels of estrogen also rise, causing the lining of the uterus to grow and get thicker.  If a woman were to become pregnant, that extra-thick lining would help to nourish the developing fetus (a baby growing in the woman's uterus).
 
When enough estrogen is produced, it sends a signal to the pituitary gland that the egg is ready to be released. The pituitary gland produces luteinising hormone (LH) and as a result ovulation is triggered. Around the middle of the cycle, around cycle day 14, the egg leaves the ovary, a process called ovulation. The egg begins to travel down the fallopian tubes to the uterus.  If the egg becomes fertilized by a man's sperm cell and attaches to the uterus, it begins to grow into a fetus.  If not, the uterus does not need the extra thick lining and it begins to shed.

The end of the ovulation phase is marked by the start of the luteal phase. It lasts between 10 to 16 days. When fertilization of the egg takes place, the follicle called the corpus luteum releases the egg. This follicle produces the hormone, progesterone which helps to facilitate and maintain the thickened uterine lining. The corpeus luteum dies (around day 22 of a normal 28 day cycle) if the egg is not fertilized, and the endometrium is shed by bleeding. This shedding of the uterine lining through the vagina is menstruation. The menstrual blood (a mix of blood and tissue from the inside of the uterus) flows from the uterus through the cervix into the vagina and out of the body. Your period may last for 3-5 days. Some last as long as 7 days. The process then starts again in the next cycle.

How Often Does a Girl Get Her Period?

Irregular periods are common in girls who are just beginning to menstruate. It may take the body a while to sort out all the changes going on, so a girl may have a 28-day cycle for 2 months, then miss a month, for example. Usually, after a year or two, the menstrual cycle will become more regular. Some women continue to have irregular periods into adulthood, though.

As a girl gets older and her periods settle down - or she gets more used to her own unique cycle - she will probably find that she can predict when her period will come. In the meantime, it's a good idea to keep track of your menstrual cycle with a calendar.

How Long and How Much?

The amount of time that a girl has her period also can vary. Some girls have periods that last just 2 or 3 days. Other girls may have periods that last 7 days or longer. The menstrual flow - meaning how much blood comes out of the vagina - can vary widely from girl to girl, too.

Some girls may be concerned that they're losing too much blood. It can be a shock to see all that blood, but it's unlikely that a girl will lose too much, unless she has a medical condition like von Willebrand disease. Most teens will change pads 3 to 6 times a day, with more frequent changes when their period is heaviest, usually at the start of the period.

Especially when menstrual periods are new, you may be worried about your blood flow or whether your period is normal in other ways. Talk to a doctor or nurse if:

  • your period lasts longer than a week

  • you have to change your pad very often (soaking more than one pad every 1–2 hours)

  • you go longer than 3 months between periods

  • you have bleeding in between periods

  • you have an unusual amount of pain before or during your period

  • your periods were regular then became irregular

Signs of menstruation


Bleeding from the vagina is the primary sign of menstruation.

Many girls have mild cramps in the lower abdomen or pain in the lower back when their periods start. Cramping gives you a feeling of tightness and pain. This is normal. Some girls also go through other changes in the days or weeks before their menstrual periods start. Some women have other symptoms (when the period hurts) around the time of menstruation, including:

 

Cramping, bloating (a feeling of fullness in the abdomen), and sore and tender breasts

 

Food cravings

 

Mood swings and irritability

 

Headache and fatigue


If these symptoms are severe, it might be a sign of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). PMS usually occurs one or two weeks before menstruation. PMS may affect a woman of any age who has menstrual periods. If the symptoms disrupt your lifestyle, you may want to seek medical care.

Cramps, PMS, and Pimples

Some girls may notice physical or emotional changes around the time of their periods. Menstrual cramps are pretty common - in fact, more than half of all women who menstruate say they have cramps during the first few days of their periods. Doctors think that cramps are caused by prostaglandin, a chemical that causes the muscles of the uterus to contract.

Depending on the girl, menstrual cramps can be dull and achy or sharp and intense, and they can sometimes be felt in the back as well as the abdomen. These cramps often become less uncomfortable and sometimes even disappear completely as a girl gets older.

Some girls and women find that they feel sad or easily irritated during the few days or week before their periods. Others may get angry more quickly than normal or cry more than usual. Some girls crave certain foods. These types of emotional changes may be the result of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).

PMS is related to changes in the body's hormones. As hormone levels rise and fall during a woman's menstrual cycle, they can affect the way she feels, both emotionally and physically. Some girls, in addition to feeling more intense emotions than they usually do, notice physical changes along with their periods - some feel bloated or puffy because of water retention, others notice swollen and sore breasts, and some get headaches.

PMS usually goes away soon after a period begins, but it can come back month after month. Eating right, getting enough sleep, and exercising may help relieve some of the symptoms of PMS.


Other problems with menstrual periods

A stop in menstrual periods (called amenorrhea), or other menstrual irregularities could be a sign that something is wrong. Menstrual irregularities can mean:

  • bleeding between your periods

  • skipping a period, or

  • having very heavy menstrual periods

It's also not uncommon for girls to have an acne flare-up during certain times of their cycle; again, this is due to hormones. Fortunately, the pimples associated with periods tend to become less of a problem as girls get older.

Helful dietary habits for regular periods, menstrual cycle, menstrual disorders

Several of the problems associated with the menstrual cycle can be helped by careful attention to diet.

  • Have spinach and other dark green vegetables for magnesium and vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 is involved in the breakdown of estrogen in the liver and therefore helps in relieving from premenstrual depression, lethargy, and water retention – characterized by bloating and tender breasts. Meat and fish are other useful sources of this vitamin. Magnesium helps to prevent menstrual cramps. Good food sources include shellfish and nuts..

  • Eating foods rich in vitamin E, such as cold pressed oils, eggs, nuts, and wheat germ, go a long way in helping to reduce breast tenderness.

  • Cutting down on salt also helps in reducing water retention. Eat diuretic foods such as asparagus, celery, garlic, parsley and watercress.

  • Gradually cutting down on caffeine intake shall help as caffeine may exacerbate PMS.

  • Women who have food cravings try to ‘sugar fix’ it. It may, and usually does, result in headaches, palpitations or fatigue. They should rather try eating small meals regularly to keep blood sugar levels stable.

  • Alcohol should also be avoided as it exacerbates mood swings and behavioral changes.

  • In case you suffer from heavy periods, iron intake must be increased to prevent anemia. Red meat, liver (not if you are trying to conceive) and kidneys are very good dietary sources. Veggie sources include dried fruits and dark green leafy vegetables.

  • Drink diluted citrus fruit juices as they contain vitamin C which helps in absorbing iron.

Help in menstrual periods

Pads, Tampons, and Liners

Once you begin menstruating, you will need to use something to absorb the blood. Most girls use a pad or a tampon, but some use menstrual cups, which a girl inserts into her vagina to catch and hold the blood (instead of absorbing it, like a tampon).

There are so many products out there that it may take some experimenting before you find the one that works best for you. Some girls use only pads (particularly when they first start menstruating), some use only tampons, and some switch around - tampons during the day and pads at night, for example.

Girls who worry about leakage from a tampon often use a pantiliner, too, and some girls use liners alone on very light days of their periods.

Periods shouldn't get in the way of exercising, having fun, and enjoying life. Girls who are very active, particularly those who enjoy swimming, often find that tampons are the best option during sports.

If you have questions about pads, tampons, or coping with periods, ask a parent, health teacher, school nurse, or older sister.

Homeopathic cures for regular periods, menstrual cycle, menstrual disorders. Having sex with orgasm is immensely helpful in relieving menstrual cramps as the vigorous muscle action moves blood and other fluids away from congested organs.

For cramps

  • Placing a heating pad on the abdomen and over-the-counter pain relievers may help lessen the symptoms. It is important to tell your health care provider if you have severe cramping and pain or other symptoms, during menstruation.

  • When you feel cramps coming on, go for a walk or run, or go swimming. You may also get on an exercise bike and use it regularly. Any kind of exercise helps to inhibit prostaglandin production and boosts the release of pain-killing endorphins. Exercise also relieves bloating.

  • Alternatively, you can go for a hot Epsom salt soak. Add 1 cup Epsom salts to soothe nerves and relax muscles in a hot water tub. The warmth helps to relax knotted-up muscles in the uterus.

  • Yoga stretches during your periods can also help. One position in yoga goes like this: Kneel on the floor and sit on your heels. Bring your forehead to the floor against your body. Close your eyes. Hold the position for as long as it is comfortable.
