Natural Treatment for Irregular Periods: What Causes Periods to Become Irregular?
First of all, let’s say that if your periods are irregular, it doesn’t necessarily mean that there is a problem – sometimes it’s just how your body works. The average menstrual cycle is 28 days – so as this is the ‘average’, it’s quite normal for your cycle to be shorter or longer than this. Following puberty, you will generally develop a regular cycle with a similar length of time between each period, which may vary by a few days each time. You are said to have irregular periods if the gap between your periods starting keeps changing or your periods consistently come early or late.
There are many possible causes for irregular periods, the most common of which are:
- Puberty – during the first couple of years after puberty your periods may be irregular as they settle down into a more consistent pattern
- Pre-menopause – prior to menopause (the peri-menopause), your periods may become irregular and heavier
- Early pregnancy – a pregnancy test can rule out this as a cause for irregular periods
- The use of hormonal contraception such as the pill or intrauterine contraception such as an IUD
- Medical conditions such as thyroid issues or polycystic ovary syndrome
- Extreme weight loss or weight gain
- Excessive exercise
The Benefits of Naturopathy for Irregular Periods as a Treatment
At the heart of the holistic approach of naturopathy is utilising a variety of natural treatments to treat the underlying causes of your irregular periods. One of the most potent treatments we offer is herbal medicine. As the oldest known form of medicine, herbs have been used for millennia to help with many health issues. Our naturopath Marisa works with a group of herbs that have proven success when used on the female reproductive area and will prescribe tailored herbal medication for irregular periods treatment. But more than this, we’ll prescribe a range of treatments combined with lifestyle changes that will treat you as a whole to return you to optimum health.
