What is considered normal to your Menstruation
Your menstruation period can be light or heavy, painful, or pain-free, long or short, and still be considered normal. Your menstrual cycle can be regular — about the same length every month — or somewhat irregular.
The Menstrual Cycle takes place In young women, the time between the first day of one period and the first day of the next is typically 21 to 35 days. The average length of stay among adults is 28 days, with a range of 21 to 31 days.
Bleeding normally lasts between two and seven days.
Causes Menstrual Cycle irregularities
Because every woman is different, also every woman’s hormones react differently according to the changes they have been through. This may cause some irregularities in a woman’s menstruation cycle. The Menstrual Irregularities have different causes including:
- Changes in Diet
- Extreme weight loss/ gain
- Increased Physical Activities
- Travelling and change of climatic seasons
As always every woman’s menstrual cycle is different. What’s normal for you might not be normal for someone else. It’s important to get familiar with your cycle, including when you get your periods and how long they last.
