Gynecologist near Cypress, TX identifies causes of troubling menstrual symptoms

Gynecologist in Cypress Tx Area

As your trusted gynecologist in the Cypress, TX area, Dr. Jenkins and his team take great pride in their quality care for women in all phases of life.

It’s estimated up to 14 percent of women have irregular menstrual cycles or abnormal bleeding. Typically, a cycle ranges from 21 to 35 days; however, some women may experience “ovulatory” pattern bleeding that lasts longer than seven days and is heavy but otherwise occurs regularly.

“Anovulatory” bleeding is characterized by irregular or infrequent periods that occur outside of the 35-day cycle, with either minimal or heavy bleeding.

A hallmark of “dysmenorrhea” is painful periods and severe cramping. Other irregularities include frequent periods less than three weeks apart, and episodes of spotting or bleeding for no more than two days at a time.

Causes

Visits with Dr. Jenkins involve a physical exam and discussion about your symptoms. A personal health history is kept to record past illnesses, hospitalizations, medication usage, family history of disease, and information about diet, exercise, habits, and major life events that may be producing stress as that can affect your menstrual cycle.

Abnormal periods are also associated with:

  • Birth control. Some pills may only cause bleeding between periods. You may have irregularities for up to six months after going off the pill.
  • Polyps and fibroids are usually noncancerous, but may be so big that they push on the bladder or rectum and produce excessive bleeding and pain during periods.
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome, a common condition in which ovaries make excess male hormones. Facial hair, acne, and dramatic weight gain are telltale signs of this condition.
