Some of the menstrual problems which require professional intervention include:
A condition where the ovaries are larger than normal and the underdeveloped follicles resemble a bunch of grapes. It often causes women to stop ovulating and can produce other distressing symptoms like weight gain, acne, mood swings and hirsutism (hair growth). PCOS is a common cause of menstrual abnormality.
A condition where the endometrium or lining of the womb starts to grow in other places other than the uterus. Endometrium may start to grow in the fallopian tubes, ovaries, bowel or bladder and will exhibit the same characteristics as normal womb lining, that is bleeding regularly in response to hormonal changes in the body, just like a period. Endometirosis can affect fertility because the endometrium can scar and cause blockages within the ovaries or fallopian tubes.
Are non cancerous growths that form in or on the uterine wall. They are quite common, and mostly do not affect fertility. Sometimes however, they can stop the embryo implanting or be a factor in miscarriage.
Clear fallopian tubes are essential for successful natural conception, as the fallopian tubes provide the path for the sperm and the egg. If your tubes are blocked then conception via intercourse is very difficult if not impossible. If you have been trying for a while with no results, get a full check and make sure your fallopian tubes are clear.
Some complimentary therapies can help with menstrual problems such as endometriosis, PCOS and Fibroids. Often hormonal irregularity contributes to these illnesses so addressing the individuals hormonal function can be helpful.
