Heavy Menstrual Periods? Blame It on your Thyroid.

Your Thyroid Gland and the hormone that it produces regulates everything from your metabolism to your digestion. Because many symptoms usually slowly creep up on you, it is very common not to realize that there has been a change in your energy level, memory, menstrual periods and skin texture. Menstrual periods can vary from woman to woman; changing hormone levels can cause a variety of symptoms which may result in heavy menstrual periods. If you are experiencing any of the fore stated problems and especially heavy menstrual periods then you need to consider that there may be a problem with your thyroid. Getting timely treatment of your thyroid gland is essential to maintain optimum health. Some women may feel the worst of it, yet some others may feel the very least of it.

One of the most noticeable changes that occur during the onset of menopause is visible changes in occurrence of periods. Many women experience less regular periods; some have a lighter menstrual flow than normal; others face a heavier flow and may bleed a lot for many days. Women, who have had previous problems with heavy menstrual periods and cramps, will usually find marked relief from these symptoms, when menopause starts. But if your menopause time is far away as you are if you are in your thirties or even below that age then this is the gray area for you. With that said consider that your thyroid gland might not be functioning well and may be the culprit of your problems.

During heavy menstrual periods with severe pain, one more noticeable symptom is the repeated occurrences of ‘hot flashes’, which is a sudden feeling of heat in the upper part or all of a woman’s body. Face and neck become extremely flushed. Flashes can be as mild as a light instant blush or it can be severe enough to wake you from a sound sleep (also called night sweats). Most flashes usually last between 30 seconds but can last as long as 5 minutes.

The Thyroid Gland controls your entire body's metabolism. That means that your weight, your hair, your skin, your sex drive, your menstrual periods, all sorts of things that go on in your body depend on the proper functioning of your Thyroid Gland.

There are supplements that can rectify the malfunctioning of your thyroid gland and keep you healthy without any negative side effects. These supplements contain natural ingredients to help get your thyroid back in action and treat the symptoms related to thyroid disorders.

As always consult with your doctor regarding any supplements that you decide to use; especially if you are taking other medications.
