What are Menstrual Disorders?

Menstrual disorders are abnormal conditions observed during a woman’s menstrual cycle.

These include the following:

  • Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
  • Abnormal Uterine bleeding, causing heavy bleeding, no menstrual bleeding (Amenorrhea) and/or bleeding between periods
  • Dysmenorrhea or painful menstrual periods
  • Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, causing a host of effective, behavioural and somatic symptoms

Common Menstrual Disorders

Continuous monitoring and a thorough knowledge of your menstrual cycle is a necessity, as every woman’s menstrual cycle is unique. What may be normal for someone else, might be an abnormality for you.

In any case, the following are some common abnormalities put together by our experts at Apollo Clinic:

Heavy Periods (menorrhagia): this includes heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding. Knowledge of your regular flow is necessary in order to determine if the flow has increased in volume or number of days.

Absence of menstruation (amenorrhea): primary amenorrhea is when a girl does not begin to menstruate by the age of 16. Secondary amenorrhea, on the other hand, is a condition when previously regular periods have stopped for at least 3 months, and woman is not pregnant.

Infrequent or light menstruation (oligomenorrhea): this refers to a condition when menstrual periods regularly occur more than 35 days apart. Oligomenorrhea is not generally a cause for concern unless the periods start occurring more than 3 months apart.

Extremely painful cramps (Dysmenorrhea): primary dysmenorrhea is caused by menstruation. Secondary dysmenorrhea is caused by the presence of other conditions such as uterine fibroids or endometriosis and requires instant medical attention.
