  • Regulation of the menstrual cycle: Management of an irregular menstrual cycle and related symptoms involves medications and surgical interventions. The medications include hormonal birth control for regulating the menstrual cycle, pain relievers to reduce pain, hormonal therapy in case menstrual dysregulation is due to perimenopause, and antibiotics to treat infections. The surgical interventions include endometrial ablation, myomectomy (removal of uterine fibroids), and hysterectomy (removal of the uterus).
  • Heavy Menstrual Bleeding: Some women experience heavy or prolonged bleeding during menstruation. This may be due to ovarian dysfunction, hormonal imbalance, uterine fibroids, cancer, pregnancy complications, intrauterine device implantation, polyps, or underlying diseases related to the kidney or liver. Complications of menorrhagia (heavy and/or prolonged bleeding) include severe pain and anemia (due to significant blood loss).
  • Absent Menstrual Bleeding: It is also known as amenorrhea. In some situations, such as during pregnancy, breastfeeding, menopause, and before puberty, amenorrhea is normal. Most women with amenorrhea do not have ovulation, leading to infertility. Other symptoms that accompany amenorrhea include excess body hair, increased muscle size, and a deepened voice.
  • Oligomenorrhea: It is indicated by inconsistent and irregular menstrual bleeding. Several underlying medical conditions cause oligomenorrhea. These include polycystic ovarian syndrome, Cushing syndrome, pelvic inflammatory disease, Asherman syndrome, and type 1 diabetes mellitus.
  • Dysmenorrhea: Women with dysmenorrhea experience painful menstrual periods. There are two types of dysmenorrhea, i.e., primary and secondary. Primary dysmenorrhea involves recurrent menstrual cramps and is not caused by any underlying condition. Secondary dysmenorrhea is caused due to underlying conditions, such as infection or any disease related to the female reproductive system.
