Strong emotions can disrupt the menstrual cycle

Yes, the truth is suffering (not just love it), and stress can accelerate the hands of the biological clock that regulates the menstrual cycle. End of relationship, loss of a loved one, the tension at work and many other stressful situacijemogu shorten the cycle of the usual 28 to 24 days, according to research published in the American scientific magazine. Strong and long lasting stress can even cause loss of menstrual periods. Also, traveling overseas, including the arrival of spring can disrupt the cycle and cause a missed period. Climate change is a strain on the body, especially in metereopata. Fortunately, the cycle disorder caused by weather changes do not last longer than thirty days and months, but people's biological clock is back to normal, and the cycle stabilizes.

Why is there a disturbance of the biological cycle? Because of the "revolt of hormones." Stressful situations, namely, increasing the secretion of some hormones (cortisol, prolactin and dopamine) and the body interprets this as a warning that time is not conducive to beginning a new life. The "message" reaches the hypothalamus, which then issues a command to block ovulation. The hypothalamus is usually directly related to the limbic system (part of the brain that controls emotions) which means that it is "well informed" about the emotional (in) stability of women. At the same time he managed the menstrual cycle by acting on the pituitary gland, gland that stimulates the production of estrogen and progesterone, hormones that regulate the cycle. If it happens that the body sends a signal that for some reason not ready for fertilization, the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, causing a delay block, or temporary absence of menstruation.

Disturbances of the menstrual cycle and may be delayed because of the thyroid gland. In this case, there are other symptoms that suggest hypothyroidism, such as: obesity, fatigue, dry skin, bad mood, a sudden drop in concentration, poor memory.

Treatment. If the cycle has been disturbed due to stress, the only cure is to establish a psycho-physical balance.Inner tension can be reduced by exercises for relaxation, yoga exercises, or counseling. If the cycle is always irregular, you should seek professional help. Only after a gynecological examination and analysis of hormone levels, your doctor may recommend an appropriate hormonal therapy.
