Menstrual Disorder

Some women get through their monthly periods easily with few or no concerns. Their periods come like clockwork, starting and stopping at nearly the same time every month, causing little more than a minor inconvenience. However, other women experience a host of physical and/or emotional symptoms just before and during menstruation. From heavy bleeding and missed periods to unmanageable mood swings, these symptoms may disrupt a woman's life in major ways.


However, Menstrual Disorders is an issue that is common at recent times. It has alternative names such as Dysmenorrhea, Menorrhagia, Amenorrhea, and Heavy Menstrual Bleeding. Amenorrhea or Absence of menstruation is a disorder which occurs when a girl does not begin to menstruate at the age of 16. Secondary Amenorrhea occurs when periods that are normally frequent suddenly stop for like 3 months.


Dysmenorrhea or Painful periods which is one of the most common issues is known as either Primary or Secondary Dysmenorrhea. Painful periods are cramps felt at the lower belly and it could range from mild to extremely severe pains, and this could be really uncomfortable. Oligomenorrhea or Light or infrequent menstruation (refers to menstrual periods that occur more than 35 days apart. It usually is no cause for alarm except if periods occur more than 3 months apart. Heavy bleeding also known as Menorrhagia includes prolonged menstrual periods or excessive bleeding.


During the heavy bleeding also known as Menorrhagia, Daisy Menstrual Cup will help you on this period, it is a small, flexible cup which made of silicone or latex rubber. Menstrual cups are bell-shaped cups made of silicone or rubber. When you fold one and insert it into your vagina, it pops open and forms a seal against the walls of the vagina. Menstrual fluid is then trapped in the cup until you remove it for emptying.


Instead of absorbing your flow, like a tampon or pad, it catches and collects it. Just before your period begins, tightly fold the menstrual cup and insert it like a tampon without an applicator. Used correctly, so you shouldn’t feel it inside of you. It’s similar to putting a diaphragm or birth control ring in place. Daisy Menstrual cup is safe to use. As with any period care product, it is absolutely necessary to keep it clean, don’t leave it in too long and to use a trusted brand.


For years, women have used either tampons or pads to collect blood and protect clothing during their periods. But a menstrual cup provides women with an alternative to these traditional methods. Some are long-lasting and reusable, while others are disposable.


The cup actually collects the menstrual flow rather than absorbing it as tampons or pads do, so it helps to shorten your menstrual period. There are women also claimed that by using the cup, the menstrual cramps was lessened since the cup gives resistance against vaginal muscle and it creates mild under pressure inside which is it helps the uterus expel the menstrual fluids.


However, some cups are designed for long-term use even years providing significant cost savings over tampons and pads. Since you can reuse them, there’s less waste to clog up our landfills and fewer trees sacrificed to make the paper-based alternatives. Though, some cups are designed to be disposable. Make sure you read the box label carefully before buying if you want a reusable one. By, using it you won’t have to worry about embarrassing menstrual odor wafting out at the most inopportune times since the fluid doesn’t get exposed to air as it does with pads and tampons.


The Vaginal pH and beneficial bacteria stay in place. Tampon Alternative absorb all your vaginal fluid along with the blood, which may disturb the delicate pH and bacterial balance in your vagina. Unlike tampons, menstrual cups don’t dry the vagina. This preserves the healthy bacteria that protect you from vaginal infections.


In addition, Menstrual cups are not associated with toxic shock syndrome (TSS), which is a rare, life-threatening condition linked to tampon use. Menstrual cups don’t contain chemicals found in tampons and pads, such as bleach and dioxin. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), some dioxins are known to cause cancer in humans.


Hence, Menstrual Cycles are often bringing about a variety of uncomfortable symptoms leading up to your period. Premenstrual Syndrome or (PMS) encompasses the common issues, such as mild cramping and fatigue but the symptoms usually go away when your period begins. However, more serious menstrual problems may occur.


Menstruation that is too heavy or too light or the complete absence of a cycle may suggest that there are other issues that are contributing to an abnormal menstrual cycle. Remember that a normal menstrual cycle means something different for every woman. A cycle that is regular for you may be abnormal for someone else. It is important to stay tune with your body and talk to your doctor if you notice any significant changes to your menstrual cycle.
