Menstrual bleeding is considered irregular if it occurs more frequently than every 21 days or lasts longer than 8 days.
- High stress levels:
When your body is under a lot of stress, for example in case of a traumatic event, your body can start to conserve energy by preventing ovulation.
- Improper diet:
A poor diet low in nutrients and yet high in stimulants (like artificial additives) can tax the adrenal glands and thyroid, and cause irregular periods.
Exercising too much can put excess pressure on your adrenal, thyroid and pituitary glands causing periods to stop suddenly or become scanty.
