Ayurvedic Medicine for Irregular Periods



When the menstrual cycle of women fails to work naturally, it leads to menstrual disorder. There are a lot of different problems that fall under this category and the severity and symptoms can vary a great deal too.


It is important to get these problems sorted at the earliest because they can worsen quickly in a very short duration. The three main problems which we will be dealing here includes:


  •     Menopause
  •     Menorrhagia
  •     Amenorrhoea


Here, we will talk about all three of them to help you get a clear idea of the details of the same.


Menopause - What Is?


Menopause is the state when the reproductive ability of women ends. Women who are experiencing menopause can no longer bear a child. It is a natural change which occurs in the body. However, it can occur earlier in some women and it is often accompanied by a lot of mood changes.


Menorrhagia- Heavy Bleeding Period  


This is a menstrual disorder wherein the menstrual period is prolonged and the menstrual flow is abnormally high. It can lead to immense loss of blood from the body and is mostly caused because of abnormal blood clotting. Not only does the flow increases substantially, but the gap in between menstrual cycles gets shortened which leads to frequent flow as well. The pain that occurs during menstruation is mostly unbearable too.


Amenorrhoea – No Period


Amenorrhoea is characterised by the absence of menstruation, even when a woman is reproductively active. There are various causes of this disease and it can also be termed as both primary and secondary as well. Women who regularly miss periods are often at a risk of suffering from this disease.


Causes Of Menstrual Disorders


There can be various causes of the disorders. As the entire menstrual cycle is based upon the flow of hormones, it is very common to find all the diseases being linked to the play of hormones. Every time the hormonal balance of people gets disrupted, women are sceptical of suffering from different menstrual disorders.



  • Menopause is mainly an age related symptom. The human body has been so made that with age, women will lose their reproductive ability and this transition is not made suddenly, but happens in a smooth way. However, it is mostly accompanied by mood swings. The main cause for menopause is when the ovaries fail to release an egg as it is supposed to do monthly.


  • As far as Menorrhagia is concerned, it is hard to term a specific reason as a cause. Mostly, blood and stress related disorders are termed to be the most common causes which lead to this problem. When the blood fails to coagulate, it can lead to excessive flow.


  • Amenorrhoea can be caused because of lack of ample blood production. When your body lacks the right amount of blood, there will be nothing left in it to be lost. It can also be caused because of excessive exercising or even lack of ample eating.


Symptoms Of Menstrual Disorders


The symptoms of different menstrual disorders will vary a great deal.  Based upon the disorder you are suffering from, the original symptoms are going to differ. Here, we will take a look at all three problems separately.


Menopause Symptoms

Ayurvedic Background of Menstruation


If you take a look at the ayurvedic background of this disease, you will find that ayurveda believes most of these diseases are because of bad diet and wrong lifestyle habits. Even when the digestion is not proper, it can lead to such problems as well.


Ayurveda believes that when the natural balance of your body is disturbed and the flow of hormones get disrupted because of psychological reason or even otherwise, it can lead to menstrual problems.


Ayurveda believes in bringing the right changes in lifestyle as it can reflect on your overall body functioning. There are a lot of ayurvedic herbs and medicines which can improve the condition of a person. We will talk about them next.
