Irregular periods

Irregular periods are very common in many women. However, if you have just missed a period, of course, pregnancy is always something to consider. If you are not pregnant, there are a ton of reasons that your periods can be out of whack. A ton of medical conditions can mess with your periods, from thyroid disorders to PCOS. Medications can also interfere with your periods, too, so take that into consideration. Menopause or Peri-Menopause can also be the culprits. If you have only had your irregular periods for a few months, you should see a doctor so he or she can help you determine what the cause is for your irregular periods.

Heavy periods

Heavy flow is also a very common period problem. If you need to change your pad or tampon more than five times per day, you might have a problem. Fibroids are one of the most common causes of heavy periods. Fibroids are not usually harmful, and they shrink once you get closer to menopause. Sometimes doctors can give you medications or do treatments to lessen your flow. If your flow is heavier than it should be, it is always a good idea to check with a doctor to make sure you don’t have any serious problems


A ton of women experience spotting in between periods. In most cases, spotting is harmless and nothing to worry about. If you are on the pill, that could be the reason for your breakthrough bleeding, as it happens quite often. Some women even have spotting every month when they ovulate, and it is completely normal. If you only have spotting every now and then, it is nothing to worry about. However, if it is persistent, you should check with your doctor just to make sure everything is okay. If your birth control pill is to blame, your doctor can up your dosage, so don’t worry about that.

Light periods

Light flow periods are very common, especially for women who are on the pill. This usually doesn’t have many women complaining however, and most see light periods as a blessing. If you are not on the pill, a common cause for light periods is thyroid issues. Your doctor can give you meds for this if it is the problem. However, most times, a light flow is nothing to worry about.
