Many women experience irregular periods, a condition that can cause delayed or early period cycles. Also called oligomenorrhea, irregular periods are often associated with hormonal changes, stress, or even extreme endurance exercises. However, instead of opting for medicines straight away, there is a need to make substantial lifestyle changes that can go a long way in helping manage the same.

But, how to know if you suffer from the condition?

In general, a menstrual cycle after 25 to 35 days is considered normal, during which using two to three sanitary napkins per day is ideal. The time between each period is almost similar, sometimes a day or two early or late for most women. However, for some, the interval between periods differs substantially. Experts warn that if the change in period is sudden, one should not waste time and consult a doctor immediately as undetected problems could lead to serious complications.
