Gem Hospital and IVF Centre: The normal female’s menstrual cycle length is 28 days, but this length differs between every individual. Irregular menstruation is explained as when the duration of the menstrual cycle is more than 35 days or if the duration differs.
These issues can be a sign of PCOS problems. Here in this article, we are going to discuss several ways to treat these issues. This includes hormonal contraception like oral contraceptive pill and metformin.
PCOS treatment in India is highly-effective to treat PCOS issues. The length of the normal menstrual cycle with one ovulation is 28 days when eggs are released, but sometimes between 21 and 35 days is also considered normal. An irregular period cycle is termed as when:
- You have eight or fewer cycles of menstruation every year
- You have cycles of menstruation for longer than 35 days.
Some females who are suffering from PCOS also observe lighter or heavier bleeding during the menstrual cycle.
Regular menstruation helps to prevent the redundant thickness of the uterus lining (womb). If there is a long gap between periods then it results in the building of abnormal cells inside the womb. It is very essential that you must have at least 4 menstrual cycles per year to avoid the building of abnormal cells.
