On Stress and Violation of Cycle

Today, many girls and women regularly experience severe anxiety and difficult life situations. This stress can cause gynecological problems. ☹️

The basis of women’s health is a certain rhythm of hormone production, which ensures a normal menstrual cycle and the ability to conceive (fertility), prevents the development of some gynecological diseases.?

Regulation of the menstrual cycle is a multi-stage “cascade” that begins in the cerebral cortex and structures of the limbic system. The main role in this process is played by neuropeptides (dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, kiss-peptin) and the hormone melatonin. Stressful situations directly affect the processes of synthesis and consumption of these substances, as a result of which the most important link in the regulation of the menstrual cycle is disturbed.?

REGULATION OF THE MENSTRUAL CYCLE A MULTI-STEP “CASCADE” THAT STARTS IN THE BRAIN STRESSFUL SITUATIONS DIRECTLY AFFECT THE PROCESSES OF SYNTHESIS AND CONSUMPTION OF NEUROPEPTIDES. AS A RESULT OF WHICH THE MOST IMPORTANT LINK OF REGULATION OF THE MENSTRUAL CYCLE IS DISRUPTED. ?

It is the limbic system that is responsible for our emotions – first of all, for reactions of fear and anger. Therefore, gynecological problems can be caused by experiencing acute stress ?

The first alarm call is usually menstrual cycle disturbances, which can be observed immediately after the experienced stress

(the normal duration of the menstrual cycle is 24-38 days;
inter-cycle differences in cycle duration can normally be up to 10 days);

The most frequent violations ✅

? lengthening of the cycle: delay of menstruation for 10 days or more
? shortening of the cycle: the onset of menstruation 10 or more days earlier than usual
?complete cessation of menstruation: functional hypothalamic amenorrhea
?profuse uterine bleeding (not only during menstruation)

THE MOST FREQUENT DISRUPTION OF THE MENSTRUAL CYCLE

? CYCLE PROLONGATION: DELAY OF MENSTRUATION BY 10 DAYS OR MORE

? CYCLE SHORTENING: START OF MENSTRUATION FOR 10 DAYS OR MORE

BEFORE

? COMPLETE TERMINATION OF MENSTRUATION

? HEAVY UTERINE BLEEDING (NOT ONLY DURING MENSTRUAL PERIOD)

violation of the hormonal regulation of the menstrual cycle can lead to anovulation (when the egg does not “leave” from the follicle in the ovary),


the endometrium (the inner mucous membrane of the uterus) in such a situation grows excessively, which leads to profuse bleeding. ❗️


This is a serious problem that cannot be ignored in any case: sometimes the bleeding can be so massive that surgery and blood transfusions are required.❗️
