PHYSIOLOGY OF MENSTRUATION
Hypothalamus stimulate the Pituitary glandin the brain to release the Follicular Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Luteinizing Hormone (LH). These hormones travel through the blood stream to the reproductive organs of the female to signal the release of Estrogen and Progesterone hormone. All these hormones play important role in regulating the maturation of egg, the ovulation and bleeding in uterus. It is a cyclic process which happens every month.
Wrong life style and food habits, impact the normal functioning of the hormones. This leads to hormonal imbalance and the egg in the ovary is not released.This in future does not signal the uterus to bleed. That’s why we see a lot of non-bleeding phase or delayed cycles in females. Some go without periods for months.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome/Disease is a common lifestyle disorder.It results in irregular menstruation, high level of androgens (Male Hormones)and anovulation and can lead to infertility. PCOS has been associated with high risk of developing type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, high cholesterol.
