Woman's menstrual cycle

The menstrual cycle is different for every woman. But more often it lasts 28 days, decreasing in some cases up to 21 days and increasing to 35 days. The entire menstrual cycle is divided into three periods:

  • oocyte maturation in the follicle (bubble) of the ovary (the first 15 days from the first day of menstruation), during this period the most active female sex hormone estrogen, which help to mature the egg;
  • ovulation - rupture of the follicle and release of the egg from the ovary into the fallopian tubes; This usually occurs on the 15th day of the menstrual cycle The days of the menstrual cycle: Four phases  The days of the menstrual cycle: Four phases
   exposed to pituitary hormones (main endocrine gland, which is located in the brain), are included in the job when it becomes necessary in the blood level of estrogens;
  • during corpus luteum - in place of the bursting of the follicle in the 16-17 day cycle formed by the corpus luteum, which begins to produce estrogen and progesterone, which are under the influence of the uterus prepares for pregnancy; If pregnancy does not occur, the corpus luteum stops its function, sex hormone level drops and 28-29 day begins rejection is already prepared to receive the embryo lining of the uterus, which is accompanied by bleeding (menstruation).

Menstrual disorders of central origin

When stress, brain injuries, endocrine diseases, tumors, high physical activity (for example, during sporting events) and other influences may suffer and production of hormones that provide the work of the menstrual cycle. This primarily affected production of pituitary hormones (the main endocrine gland located in the brain), which contributes to delay ovulation, the follicle has matured. With the defeat of the hypothalamus (region of the brain responsible for the activities of the entire endocrine system) violated the regulation of ovarian follicular development ceases.

Menstrual disorders associated with the activity of the ovaries

Failures may occur at the level of the ovary. Under the influence of various factors (stress, common diseases, diseases of the female reproductive organs, tumors, harmful effects of metabolic disorders on a background of strict diets for weight loss and so on) fails to develop estrogen and progesterone, which also entails a violation of the menstrual cycle. If time does not pay attention to the delay monthly, it can cause a serious violation of hormonal background.

   mucosa together with the embryo, then the mucous membrane is not immediately restored, which is the reason for the delay period. After birth month delay is not only due to the injury of the uterine lining, but at the expense of prolactin (a hormone that promotes the development of breast milk), which prevents the development of estrogen.

Delay month of pregnancy

Of course, the most important reason for the delay menstruation - a pregnancy. When it occurs, the corpus luteum, which was formed on the site of the ruptured follicle begins to actively produce progesterone Progesterone - norm and pathology  Progesterone - norm and pathology
 That prevents maturation of new follicles in the ovary and increases endometrium necessary for introduction of the embryo. If pregnancy is suspected, you will need to buy at the pharmacy a home pregnancy test, and then seek medical attention.

Remember: the menstrual cycle - is a delicate process, to support the fertility of women, he may suffer from any impact, so if you delay menstruation is better to consult a doctor.

Under what gynecological diseases appoint Trichopolum and how they affect the monthly

Trichopolum is a drug that inhibits the ability to live protozoa. For gynecological diseases caused by protozoa, relates primarily trichomoniasis. The causative agent of the infection Trichomonas vaginalis is very sensitive with respect to Trichopolum. But in some cases, trichomoniasis is prolonged and asymptomatic (latent). Identify and treat the disease is difficult. Often, in order to do this, you need to shake the body, causing an exacerbation of infection.

Any infection is easier to treat in a state of aggravation. For the "shake" is often used various kinds of provocation - the introduction of drugs that can cause exacerbation of the disease. Natural menstruation is a provocation - it contributes to the aggravation of any infectious-inflammatory pelvic process. Therefore, gynecologists used monthly as a natural provocation.

Another common cause of purpose Trichopolum is bacterial vaginosis. It is not a disease, and vaginal dysbiosis Dysbacteriosis vagina - how to fight?  Dysbacteriosis vagina - how to fight?
 . Can he, for various reasons, most often it occurs against the backdrop of frequent uncontrolled use of antibiotics, which leads to the suppression of vital functions of normal natural microflora of the vagina. The natural vaginal flora in healthy women creates an environment uncomfortable for reproduction pathogenic microflora. When the natural microflora is suppressed opportunistic starts to grow - it is the goiter.

Most often, the volume of growing colonies gardnerellas - bacteria that are sensitive to Trichopolum. If bacterial vaginosis is left untreated, then the creation of favorable conditions for the reproduction of pathogenic microflora (reduced immunity, colds), it will cause an infectious-inflammatory process. It manifested in the form of bacterial vaginosis heavy discharge with an unpleasant "fishy" odor.

Finally, there may be an infectious-inflammatory processes of internal female reproductive organs caused by anaerobic (without developing air) bacteria. As a rule, severe inflammatory processes, difficult to treat with antibiotics, which often develops addictive pathogens. And here to the aid may also come Trichopolum addictive which infectious agents is developing very slowly. Natural provocation in the form of monthly in the treatment of these diseases would also benefit.
