Hello Beautiful ladies,

Today my post is about how to treat irregular period cycle with ‘Lifestyle changes’.

Lifestyle Changes To Ease Irregular Periods

Few months ago, I consulted gynecologist for my irregular periods, I remember  she was telling me about lifestyle change. I did not give a thought over it rather thought tablets can just cure me. But I was completely wrong.

In another few months, I bloated (put on 8 kg in 6 months), suffered from reflux disease, headaches (almost everyday) and what not ! Then I met a gynecologist from Bangalore and I learned about lifestyle changes that can do miracles.

Lifestyle Changes To Ease Irregular Periods

 

time to change

Lifestyle change” has two major things to consider:

  • Diet
  • Exercise

This lifestyle change is not something you have to do for the sake of irregular   periods or obesity. Ladies !! if you think logically, we have arrived at this point (may it be PCOS, thyroid issues, obesity)  because of some basic flaws in the routine that we follow. We have to just set right our routine.

Diet

Your diet should consist of food item which reduce Testosterone(male hormone) level. As increase in testosterone level will greatly affect menstrual cycle. So include the below food in your diet

  • Fibre rich food like whole wheat, oats, dates, cabbage.
  • Green and yellow vegetables
  • Calcium and Vitamin D rich foods like milk, yogurt, spinach
  • Omega 3 fatty acids. So include Amla, Egg.
  • Avoid sugar. (I mean excess sugar like in candy) to keep your insulin in check.
  • Avoid oily foods like samosas, french fries, deep fried cauliflower/ chicken
  • Avoid junks like burgers (contains refined flour / maida), sodas

Exercise

Weight loss is the most important thing you can do to lower your testosterone level

  • Start with a brisk walk, then jogging.
  • I prefer group activities like zumba, aerobics, yoga because  you get lot of  motivation by people in the team. Also group activities will always have trainers. They can guide you as how & what to do rather doing something aimlessly.
  • Join a dance class. (Trust me) Yes, you can burn lot of calories by dancing. Don’t feel bad or shy. Age doesn’t matter, if you really enjoy it.
  • Play some outdoor games like tennis, vollyball
  • Join a Gym. Look out for a gym with experienced trainers. I will tell you ladies, trainers can really help to educate & motive you (its worth paying few extra bucks for a good gym)

What worked for me

Following the below routine, I have definitely got rid off irregular periods, weight gain, head ache and reflux.

  • Firstly, I consulted a Gynecologist. She had given me tablets.
  • 1 hour of aerobics. I do not miss even a single day. Earlier when I just started off, I did push (push push..)myself to the classes. When it became a part of my routine, I don’t feel compelled or bad or lazy anymore.
  • I stopped having junkiees. God !! I wonder how I did it. So I complement myself once a week with the food I love. (I keep it to a limit)
  • I include Oats / Ragi everyday either for my breakfast or dinner
  • Everyday, the first thing I have is a spoon of dry powdered Amla with warm water. Read the benefits of Amla here.
  • I increased the level of water consumption.
  • I don’t miss any of my meals. I felt craving/ dieting made me have large quantity of food at the end of the day.

So Ladies, I hope I have given you few tips of handling irregular periods.

I have got over it !! You can also do it ! Keep up the motivation.

Until I catch you with another post..Take care..Ta ta.

  1. Good post Jishaa..may i know which gynecologist you consulted in Bangalore? I am diagnosed with PCOS last month and Im wondering how to get rid of this.

    • Arati, I consulted a gynaec at Aveksha Hospital who took care of my high testosterone ( i am on the verge of PCOS). You can get in touch with reception at Aveksha Hospital, they will take care of you. Its a multi specialty hospital , so you wont need to go elsewhere.. not even for your medical tests.

  2. Thank you Tarun. but I just checked about this hospital, it is almost 25 kms away from my house. I prefer something nearby so that I can go easily. I stay in jayanagar. do you know any nearby good gynecologists?

  3. Informative post Tarun:) , you know even I am on verge of pcos and it is literally causing a lot of hair fall, is it due to high Testosterone kya?? I have heard a lot about DHT and stuff, can you shed some light on it and I would like to know about the supplements as well.

      • Hey,

        I would like to know about your medications and supplements that you had.
        I strongly feel that my PCOS adds to my extra kilos. Its like my weight is now really huge a three digit higher number, that is freaking me out. Wrt food, I am particular and I dont take junk.

        Would like to hear from you more. How much water do you drink?
        I have this huge vitamin D deficiency and my lipid profile has LDL and triglycerides on slightly higher side (by one point) than the range. I have reflux and gastric problem, chronic asthma, pinching nerve problem.
