Remedies for irregular periods after c section

Amenorrhea is a common condition in which a woman experiences irregular menstrual cycles. Amenorrhea is not a disease or health condition, but rather a sign or symptom of another health condition. The most common condition that causes a woman to skip her monthly period is pregnancy. However, it is not the only cause for amenorrhea, as the use of oral contraceptives and certain medication can also cause this condition. Interestingly, breast feeding mothers may also experience amenorrhea. It has been observed that sometimes woman who are breast feeding may not experience menstruation. However, this does not mean that ovulation cannot occur, as ovulation can occur even in the absence of menstruation.

In order to remedy your condition you must understand how the body functions. A woman's body goes through many changes on a monthly basis. Most of these changes are due to hormonal imbalances and activities. Only once the body has attained a proper hormonal balance does it function optimally. In the same way, once a woman's body is ready to shed its uterus lining, she experiences menstruation. The time cycle for this entire process is considered to be 28 days. However, this is a thumb rule - an average taken for convenience sake. A woman may take anywhere from between 1 to 3 months in order to experience menstruation sometimes, because the body may not be ready for it. Therefore, you need not be alarmed; however, you must visit your gynecologist to rule out another pregnancy or any other underlying cause. In case you do have an underlying condition, addressing the same will help you get rid of amenorrhea. In the absence of an underlying condition you can follow these simple suggestions in order to regularize your periods.

  • Your diet plays an important role in regularizing your monthly cycle. The absence of essential vitamins and minerals can lead to irregular menstrual cycles. This is because several vitamins and minerals are essential for maintaining the body's delicate hormonal levels. Eating healthy foods like green leafy vegetables, lentils, lean meats and fish will ensure that your body receives all the essential nutrients it requires. Avoid consuming junk food as it does not contain any nutritive value and can contain various unhealthy fats and artificial flavors.
  • Unhealthy habits such as smoking and drinking excessively can also cause hormonal imbalances, and are best avoided.
  • Drink plenty of fruit juices and water daily. This will help in keeping the body hydrated, as well as flush out any toxins from the body.
  • Indulging in light exercises or yoga can also help in maintaining your body's hormonal balance. However, do not over exercise as this can have a negative effect on your body.
