Abnormal menstruation symptoms vary depending on health conditions and menstrual cycles. If you have abnormal menstruation, you may feel severe pain or cramps and heavy bleeding. Sometimes abnormal menstruation can be overwhelming and you may not be able to manage your mood swings and the pain associated with it.

What do we need to know about abnormal menstruation?

Normally women’s menstrual period lasts between four and seven days and is repeated after 21 to 35 days; if your period lasts for more than seven days and is being repeated within 21 days or is not even repeated after 35 days, then there is a high possibility that you are facing abnormal menstruation. When you experience varying blood flow, like sometimes thicker, sometimes lighter along with excessive bleeding, then it is abnormal menstruation. Irregular or abnormal menstruation is also called oligomenorrhea. Sudden hormonal changes, hormonal imbalance and a sudden change in contraception can trigger it.

To seek treatment, you can search online for a gynecology hospital near me or a gynecology doctor near me.
