Stress: Vigorous exercise and daily routines can have an impact on your menstrual cycle

Birth control pills: The use of pills to prevent pregnancy keeps the ovaries from releasing eggs. Going on or off birth control pills can affect menstruation.

Hormonal Imbalance

Uterine Polyps or Fibroid: These are non-cancerous growths on the uterus which causes pain or heavy bleeding

Endometriosis: This happens when the uterine tissues grow outside the uterus which may cause an abnormal or painful period

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: This is a bacterial infection that affects the female reproductive system

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome: This is a condition where the uterus makes more male hormones and disrupts the menstrual cycle

Uterine Cancer

Knowing the cause of the menstrual abnormality is the first step towards management or treatment because most treatment options depend on the underlying causes.
