Many women who experience involuntary menstruation loss due to FHA may suffer from functional hypothalamic amenorrhea (FHA). FHA may be caused by poor diet, exercise, low body weight and stress.
Recovering from FHA can take time, but it is possible to recover both your period and heal your ovaries in the process! Use these tips to restore a regular menstrual cycle.
Eat a Healthy Diet
As a woman living with PCOS, eating regularly is one of the best ways you can support a successful recovery of periods. Aim for a diet high in complex carbs, protein and fats while limiting sodium, sugar and saturated fat intake. If meals seem restrictive when trying to manage PCOS symptoms, switch your usual options for more PCOS-friendly options like wholegrain bread instead of white or reduce consumption of highly processed convenience snacks like crisps and sweets.
Women suffering from PCOS often experience irregular or missed periods due to hormonal imbalances causing this condition. High levels of androgens (male-type hormones) and too much insulin can wreak havoc with monthly cycles of ovulation and menstruation, making treatment vital. If you suspect having PCOS it’s essential that treatment be sought immediately.
As a first step, visit your gynaecologist to discuss symptoms and receive a diagnosis. From there they’ll create a treatment plan tailored specifically to you – for instance birth control pills or metformin may help regulate ovulation and regulate periods. They could also suggest diet changes, exercises and lifestyle strategies to enhance both period health as well as overall well-being.
Doing without menstruation for extended periods is never healthy and could potentially lead to long-term health consequences like infertility and endometriosis. If your period has been irregular for an extended period, seek medical advice immediately.
Step one is to identify what’s causing problems with your period, which could include poor diet, an unhealthy lifestyle and stress or health conditions like hypothyroidism. All these issues are key contributors to amenorrhea so it’s essential that these causes be addressed if you want your periods back. In many cases, combining different approaches such as eating well-balanced meals with regular physical activity, taking vitex supplements as prescribed, taking antidepressant drugs or even weight reduction strategies could help regulate menstrual cycles and induce periods again; these strategies could include eating well-balanced meals while exercising regularly taking vitex supplements while preventing weight gain from being another source.
Exercise is an integral component of leading a healthy lifestyle and can play an essential role in helping to regulate your period by aiding in weight loss, increasing ovulation rates and relieving period pain. High intensity workouts may disrupt menstrual cycle regularities; therefore it’s essential that you find an enjoyable yet achievable exercise regime consisting of higher intensity days, lower intensity days and gentle mind-body exercises. Regular physical activity also has been shown to enhance mood and energy levels which in turn may motivate more efforts against PCOS symptoms; following MyFLO’s Cycle Syncing instructions may make them regular over time!
Women living with PCOS often suffer from irregular menstrual cycles. While this can be very upsetting, there are steps you can take to restore regular periods.
Stress relief should be top of mind as stress can disrupt hormone patterns that trigger late periods. Under pressure, adrenal glands produce cortisol hormone which interferes with natural surges that promote ovulation and menstruation cycles.
Exercise regularly as one way of relieving stress. Exercising can help you reach and maintain a healthy weight, which in turn benefits your menstrual cycle. Try doing some form of physical activity daily such as walking, yoga, swimming or running to find relief.
Final note, be sure you are getting enough sleep as not doing so can also cause late periods. Aim to go to sleep around the same time every night and wake up around the same time each morning; this will allow your body to establish a regular sleeping cycle and help improve restful restful slumber.
If you are still experiencing issues with your menstrual cycle, consulting a physician could help identify the source of the issue and devise an individualized treatment plan that suits you best.
By making some small lifestyle adjustments, you can get your period back and start feeling normal again. Eating healthily, exercising regularly, and getting enough rest are the keys to this goal. Also helpful are supplements specifically targeted at women with PCOS that balance hormone levels while encouraging your uterus to shed its lining normally – I have witnessed my FLO Living Protocol helping thousands of women such as Ashley who hadn’t had her period for three years and Stephanie who hadn’t seen Aunt Flo in 2.5 years! But she eventually returned after they followed it!
