In every woman’s life, her menstrual cycle plays a significant role. It happens in the female reproductive system as a sign of maturity and pregnancy. Once the woman starts menstruation, her body undergoes several changes.

The release of a matured egg from one of the ovaries during a menstrual cycle is known as ovulation. If the sperm is not united with the egg, fertilization will not happen, and it may result in the uterus lining sheds which comes bleeding out of the vagina. For a fertile woman, the number of menstrual cycles would be 11 to 13 in a year, but the count may decrease for irregular period cycles. Hence the chances of getting pregnant become less.

Sometimes, irregular periods may occur due to illness or stressful times. Generally, the periods may turn regular once these situations become normal. In other cases, some women may face irregularity due to hormonal imbalance. One of the common reasons is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). This imbalance stimulates many follicles that increase the estrogen level in the body without releasing an egg, which means ovulation doesn’t happen. Such estrogen rise causes the uterine lining to thicken, which sheds to start periods without ovulation.

Hypothyroid or Hyperthyroid conditions may cause irregular periods, which indicates that the ovulation is inconsistent.

Other reasons for hormonal imbalance may be proper nutrition lack, physical stress, and aggressive exercise. Doing powerful exercises often can make it difficult for the brain to trigger the hormone production for follicle development, which may lead to estrogen deficiency. 

Lack of eating the right balanced foods may lead to irregular or absence of the menstrual cycle.
