Menstruation is a normal part of a woman’s life. Most of the time, it has been observed that women’s periods have a standard or perfect timing. However, some women’s periods can be extremely unpredictable or irregular. These irregular periods can be caused by a variety of factors. Primary amenorrhea occurs when a teen does not have her period at all during adolescence. Irregular periods, missed periods, or extremely painful and severe PMS (postmenstrual syndrome) symptoms indicate that one or more hormones are either missing or too high. Whether it is due to a basic health condition, high stress levels, a poor eating routine, excessive exercise, or a lower body weight, frequent missed periods should not be ignored, especially if you are certain that you are not pregnant.
COVID-19, which causes the SARS-COV-2 virus, is thought to be less dangerous for women than for men. At the same time, women have been thought to be at a higher risk of long COVID complications, as well as a higher burden of mental illnesses, but experts are concerned that the greatest threat to a woman’s reproductive system exists. There has also been numerous case studies in which women have come forward and discussed changes in their menstrual cycle. While women have a genetic and biological advantage over men, some experts believe that hormonal and endocrinal changes that affect menstruation and fertility could act as an early warning sign of active COVID infection in women, or help identify problems when no other typical symptoms are visible. According to Medical News Today, many women who experience menstrual problems after COVID report flared up health problems, a decreased quality of life, and mental stress. What’s stranger is that all women report at least one change in their menstrual cycle after COVID-19, which is a clear indicator of how bad the virus may get for women, because menstruation and fertility are signs of good health for women and part of core vital functioning. Not only are drastic changes in menstrual cycles cause for concern, but many believe that irregular menstrual cycles and period problems may exacerbate the severity of long COVID symptoms and have long-term effects on women’s reproductive systems. Women who have recovered from COVID report menstrual irregularities. From erratic cycles to later-than-usual periods, menstrual pain, and hormonal changes, irregular periods are one of the most commonly associated complications with COVID. Some women also report missing or skipped periods as a result of the viral infection. Heavy bleeding is another common issue that some people may experience. Every month, the endometrial tissue that lines the uterus breaks down and is discharged with the menstrual flow. Endometriosis occurs when endometrial tissue grows outside of the uterus [1-4].
Endometrial tissue frequently attaches to the ovaries or fallopian tubes; it can also grow on the intestines or other organs in the lower digestive tract, as well as in the area between your rectum and uterus. Endometriosis can cause abnormal bleeding, cramping or pain before and during menstruation, and painful intercourse. This condition affects women under the age of 40 who have ovaries that do not function normally. The menstrual cycle comes to an end, similar to menopause. This can happen in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy and radiation, or if you have a family history of premature ovarian insufficiency or certain chromosomal abnormalities. Consult your doctor if this condition occurs.
