Medical Video: 7 Reasons For Not Conceiving With Regular Periods.Surprising Reasons You're Not Getting Pregnant
Long awaiting the arrival of monthly guests can be a ritual that makes you excited. In most cases, menstruation is a classic sign that you are positively pregnant. But if after repeated pregnancy tests the results are negative, the absence of menstruation this month can be a sign of certain health problems.
What are the causes of not menstruation?
If your period has been regular but within 3-6 months later it becomes rare or no menstruation at all, here are some of the most likely causes:
If you are stressed, your menstrual cycle can be longer or faster, or you may stop altogether.
Calm your mind and take time to relax. Regular exercise, such as running, swimming, and yoga, can help you relax. Breathing exercises can also help.
The weight dropped suddenly
Weight loss that is excessive or sudden can be a cause of non-menstruation because the production of hormones needed for ovulation is hampered.
Being overweight or obese can also affect your menstrual cycle. If you are overweight, your body may produce excess estrogen, one of the hormones that regulate the reproductive system in women.
Excess estrogen can affect how often you experience menstruation, and can also be a cause of menstruation.
Intense and excessive exercise can affect hormones that play a role in the menstrual process. Losing too much body fat through intense exercise can also stop the ovulation phase.
Taking birth control pills can cause irregular menstruation. Some other types of contraception such as injection KB and spiral KB (IUD) can also cause menstruation to stop altogether.
However, your menstruation will usually return when you stop taking birth control pills.
You may start not menstruating when approaching menopause. This is because estrogen levels will begin to decrease and ovulation will become less regular. After menopause, menstruation will stop completely.
Menopause is a natural part of the aging process in women, which usually occurs between the ages of 45-55 years.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a problem of female hormonal balance. Women with PCOS will experience excess androgen hormones that can inhibit the ovulation process.
Women with PCOS also usually have small cysts (fluid-filled bags) that make the ovaries enlarge. These cysts are not dangerous, but can cause non-ovulation.
