I'm married and housewife. Presently residing in the Philippines. I love to read and surfing the net.

In woman reproductive years,having menstruation monthly, quarterly or even once a year is a sign that your reproductive organs are being busy in doing her job.

But,many women find this as an added difficulty in everyday life.Why? Because some women out there are struggling tough to combat the pain that come along with menstruation.Stabbing pain from waist down to legs,painful cramps, headache,chills,and sometimes fever! I believe ,those are some factors that we almost can't endure each time our period comes and these makes us sick!

According to one of my ob gynecology, regular menstruation ranges from 21days up to 35 days from your current menstruation up to your next menstruation.Everything that goes onto that days are still considered regular menstruation.Well,how about Irregular menstruation then?

Irregular menstruation said to be irregular or not usual,when your menstruation comes before the said 21 days or later than that 35 days. Some women considered regular even if they have their period quarterly or once a year, they're are particularly special cases.On the other hand, menstruation occurred during in-between cycle is not usual, especially if it's continuingly occuring every month.So if your period suddenly changes from your average length and flow, it's a sign that your period is irregular.

I can relate so much with irregular periods.At first,I don't have anything to asked about my period,it went well during my single years until I got married.Though, I have painful cramps every month,I never thought that there comes a time that I experience this kind of menstruation.

To make my story short,it was the time when I stopped my contraceptive pills. I encountered irregular periods,very painful cramps to the extent of taking over the counter pain reliever to ease the pain.I have period in-between cycles,not only months but for 5 consecutive years!

Brown spotting, sometimes heavy, sometimes not,but it occurs over and over.I decided to go to ob gynecology, that's the time I found out I have a cyst in my left ovary.
