Signs Your Monthly Cycle is Irregular

A common misconception among women and their menstrual cycles is that we are all doomed to suffer during our time of the month. My response to that is, “Says who??” Just because your period has consisted of pain, cramps, mood swings, and a heavy flow since you started menstruating at a young age doesn’t mean that it’s normal! Ideally, your monthly cycle shouldn’t bring any symptoms other than a moderate flow for 3-5 days. Any additional symptom is your body sending you red flags that something is up and needs to be addressed! Some common red flags to pay attention to:

  • 🚩Cramps
  • 🚩Clotting
  • 🚩Low back pain
  • 🚩Spotting in between periods
  • 🚩PMS
  • 🚩Headaches
  • 🚩Irregular, long, or short periods of bleeding
  • 🚩Excessive bleeding
  • 🚩Breast tenderness

And the list goes on. The important part is figuring out the ROOT CAUSE of these symptoms and how to correct them naturally. Any symptoms during your cycle may be an indication of hormonal imbalances, liver toxicity, negative effects of birth control pills, medications, exposure to environmental toxins, heavy metals, vaccines, chronic infections, or poor eating habits to name a few. And if these aren’t addressed, you may be setting yourself up for major problems down the road. If you or any of your loved ones are experiencing one or many of these symptoms with your cycle, our doctors can help.
