Technically, the normal menstrual cycle lasts between 21-35 days and the average woman to get her period every 28 days. But every woman has a different cycle, so he must know how to cycle.
“But if someone gets a wild or menstrual cycle is very irregular, for example this month the 22-day cycle last month so 35 days, then you should talk with your doctor to be sure,” said Lissa Rankin, a doctor of obstetrics and gynecology from Mill Valley, California , as quoted from Sheknows, Tuesday (23/11/2010).
Rankin said that for women who just had a period, then the variation in the cycle is normal. This is because the hypothalamus, pituitary gland and ovaries also takes time to become mature in order to have a regular monthly cycle.
But there are some things that can make someone’s menstrual cycle becomes faster or even slower, namely:
Diet and exercise
If a person does not consume enough nutrition (excessive dieting) or a marathon exercise, the body will assume the person is not ready to become pregnant so late menstruation.
This will make estrogen levels decrease and stop ovulation which makes it late or just not getting a period. Type of irregular periods is called hypothalamic amenorrhea.
Just as the problem of diet and exercise, people who have a thin body will make your body think you’re not healthy enough to bear children so that makes menstruation late.But being overweight can also be a problem.
“If you are overweight, the levels of estrogen in the body that cause excessive menstrual place heavy (menorrhagia / heavy menses) or heavy menstrual irregularities (menometrorrhgia / dna irregular heavy menses),” said Rankin.
Using birth control
Various forms of birth control generally do things on hormones in the body that has the effect of the menstrual cycle.
Rankin pointed out certain birth control pills are used continuously will make a person only through several periods in a year. While other forms such as the IUD will make menstruation become heavier or lighter depending on the type.
