Irregular, heavy, or painful periods are not normal.

Is it okay to have irregular periods?

Irregular periods can be normal during the beginning and cessation of menstruation. However, having irregular periods for a long time can be a sign that medical intervention is needed. An average menstrual cycle of a healthy female lasts from 21-35 days.

  • Stress
  • Sudden weight gain or loss
  • Birth control pills
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOD)
  • Thyroid disorder
  • Uterine fibroids

  • Bleeding for more than 7 days

What happens in an irregular period panel?

Thyroid panel: Too little or too much thyroid can cause light, heavy or irregular periods. A thyroid disorder can lead to hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.

Why go for an irregular period panel?

A missed or irregular period is the first sign that your condition needs medical attention. If this is the first instance, it can indicate stress, overuse of oral contraceptives, sudden weight fluctuations, and even pregnancy.
