Problem Periods – It’s Not Normal!

Problem Periods Are Not Normal

 

In the first five to seven years after the first menstrual period and the last ten years before menopause there can be variability in the cycles. Between the ages of 20 and 40 most women’s menstrual cycles fall into a familiar pattern of 28-day cycles.

Extremely painful or heavy menstrual periods lasting longer than 7 days are also a cause for evaluation.
