Polymenorrhea: Everything To Know
A menstruation cycle which is shorter than 21 days is known as Polymenorrhea.
A normal menstruation cycle is about 24 to 38 days long. Polymenorrhea is a form of abnormal uterine bleeding. 
- Caused due to stress though shorter cycles may be normal for some women.
- STDs are a major cause of Polymenorrhea.
- Hyperactivity of the anterior pituitary gland causes ovulation which leads to Polymenorrhea.
- Treatable by medical professionals.
- Irregular vaginal bleeding is also a major cause.
Women with Polymenorrhea find it difficult to get pregnant but it still can be achieved. Frequent ovulation makes it difficult for women as they are unable to keep track. Stress can be a common cause for this condition as it affects the hormonal balance in our bodies. It also affects fertility.
Ages affected: 13-50.
Symptoms include vaginal discharge, Menorrhagia (heavy bleeding during periods),
Metorrhagia (bleeding in between periods) and Amenorrhea(no period for six months).
People may experience
Anemia happens due to frequent and heavy bleeding.
Abdominal pain and extreme itchiness: caused by STDs.
Painful periods and pain during sex: caused by Endometriosis.
Depends on the underlying cause. The identification of the cause is mandatory for proper treatment. For example, if a woman suffers from Polymenorrhea but isn- t trying to conceive then contraception pills might be a good option as they lengthen the menstruation cycle.
Contraceptive painkillers can be had under a doctor- s prescription.
A gynecologist is best suited for this purpose.
