Denver Acupuncture Irregular Periods Treatment Works Best
To begin our discuss of how we treat irregular periods, let’s briefly describe what an ideal menstrual period might look like. Ideal is not something most women have, but it gives us a standard of comparison. An ideal period should come every 28 to 32 days, last about 5 days, have 1 to 2 heavy flow days followed by 3 lighter days. On the heavy days the blood should be bright red, fire engine red. There might be some cramping leading up to the period through day 1, but it should not be severe cramping. Similarly, there could be some PMS symptoms like irritability, food cravings and bloating, but they should be mild, not severe.
Now let’s compare that to what most women who have irregular periods deal with each month. Periods might come anywhere from 22 to 42 days, bleeding may last 7 to 10 days, with very heavy flow for more than 2 days. There may be severe cramping before and during the period, with dark maroon or purple colored blood and lots of clots. PMS may be severe, with irritability, uncomfortable bloating, cramping and breast tenderness, moodiness, depression and migraines. Some periods are the opposite, too light with hardly any bleeding, or no period at all.
