Long menstrual cycle

leave a comment »

Cycles between 23–35 days are very common.

A woman may get her period only one to four times a year.

If your menstrual cycle lasts for more than 35 days,

you should consult your physician.

This could be a sign of a serious medical condition.

Normal menstrual bleeding lasts about 5 days.

Possible causes or irregular menstruation:


Hormonal level will be changing throughout your life, and especially will fluctuate with certain big events and stresses,

e.g. a wedding, honeymoon, moving, children, buying a house, getting a degree, losing someone close to you, financial problems.


When we are under stress, regardless of the source (danger, personal relationships, work, environment) our adrenal glands are designed to secrete the hormone cortisol.

Does cortisol cause fatigue?

Sporadic episodes of poor diet, high stress, emotional trauma, illness, or strenuous physical exercise are the usual suspects behind occasional anovulatory cycles. Sometimes something as simple as a family holiday or a week with the in-laws will play havoc with a menstrual cycle.

Possible causes of heavy bleeding:

Low progesterone, PCOS, or another form of hormonal imbalance may be the culprit.





Changes in sexual activity can affect your cycle.


NUTRIENTS (fish oils, eat well)



BCP. Beware that birth control pills are powerful hormones and often cause side effects.


My best friend had done ultrasound scan pelvic. No worrying result.

My best friend had done pap smear. No worrying result.

My best friend had done full blood count. I am not anemic.

Her blood pressure is always low.

Systolic range 88 – 104.

Diastolic range 48 – 50.

She did not check thyroid function.
