Even though being on your periods isn’t a wonderful feeling, having a regular menstrual cycle is a sign of good health. In fact, you should be more disturbed when you have irregular periods. This is why it is very important for you to track your periods every month. You need to make sure that your period cycles occur regularly and you have normal bleeding until your period ends. Irregularity in menstrual cycle can mean that either you have too many days gap between consecutive periods or you have a gap of very few days. If you experience bleeding twice in a month, it means that you should be alert.
Bleeding can occur any time and it can be just spotting or heavy bleeding. While spotting once in a while isn’t something that’s dangerous, it’s important to consult a doctor if it keeps happening or if the bleeding is heavy. Also, if you experience any sort of pain or discomfort, it’s vital to seek medical help immediately. This is because irregular periods and bleeding can occur due to an underlying health issue. Here are some of these health issues that you need to know about.
