Health Advice for Menstruation Problem

A sudden cessation or stoppage of menstrual cycle is due to hormonal imbalance. Stoppage of menses is commonly seen during pregnancy. Presence of ovarian cysts results in menses stoppage. These develop anytime after puberty in women. Ovarian cysts during pregnancy are also seen to occur. Follicular cysts are harmless and fail to require any operation. Hormone therapy is administered in severe cases. A diet rich in carbohydrates and vitamins and adequate proteins are recommended. Simple sugar and caffeinated beverages are reduced. Anemia or low hemoglobin content also contributes to cessation of menses. Each menstrual cycle lasts between 28 and 35 days. Diseases, such as tuberculosis, dyspepsia and malaria are causative factors for irregular menses. Stoppage of menstrual cycle is referred to as 'amenorrhoea'. Improper eating habits, poor diet, lack of fresh air results in putting down the system and thereby results in menses stoppage. Adequate intake of iron rich foods, such as green leafy vegetables, liver, rice flakes and so on helps in improving the condition. Sudden anxiety or sorrow also causes problems in menstrual cycle. Complete cessation of menses is seen in the case of menopause.
