The Ways To Extend Menstruation Period
Many women sometimes ask their doctor how can menstruation period be extended? The menstrual cycle is not the same for every woman. On an average, menstrual flow occurs every 28 days, and most women have their cycles between 24 and 34 days. A menstrual period lasts for about 4-7 days. However, there is a wide difference in the timing and duration that is considered normal.
A small percentage of women have periods more often than every 21 days or less often than every 35 days. These variations may be normal. According to a new study, moderate exercise may help to extend the time a woman has between her menstrual periods. Some doctors even say that the hormonal changes brought on by exercise may help lower the chances of developing breast cancer too along with increasing the duration of menstrual periods.
There are medicines also which will extend the menstruation period. You need to take such pills only after you have checked with your doctor. Some pills may have a lot of side-effects. So you need to buy those ones which are safe and friendly and which do not have many side-effects. Menstrual periods depend on hormones. So when you manipulate with your periods, you are manipulating with your hormones. So you should be careful while doing this and have to take the advice of your doctor.
There are several factors which can normally change the length of your menstrual cycle. They are intense exercise, extreme weight loss, smoking, especially thin women who smoke tend to have longer periods, stress can also increase the length of periods, travel, change in contraception methods, unsuspected pregnancy, early miscarriage, recent childbirth, peri-menopause which is the years immediately before menopause and disorders of the uterus such as uterine fibroids or endometriosis.
If you want to increase the length of your periods, you may add oestrogen that is Premarin 0.625 mg or Estrace 1 mg to each BCP to increase the oestrogen stimulation of the uterine lining. This will increase the thickness of the lining and increase the length of your periods. After the desired effect has been achieved, the extra oestrogen should be stopped. Taking BCP’s is not known to have any adverse effects and some women prefer to avoid it.
Sometimes the length of menstrual cycles can increase by changing your lifestyle. Whenever you try to increase the normal length of your periods, remember that you are trying to alter the normal and natural cycle of your body. This could be dangerous sometimes. And then it might lead to irregular flow in the later months. So you need to take the advice of your doctor before trying to change your period flow.
