Relationship Between Body Weight And Health

Posted by with No comments
Body weight is an important metric in measuring our healthiness. As is the general rule, a person who is being overweight is not healthy, and a person who is healthy is not overweight.

What Is Overweight?

Being overweight is an increase in the normal weight for an individual of a particular size or age. The most generally accepted way of calculating if you're overweight is by the use of the body mass index metric, otherwise known as the BMI.

The most generally known way of calculating your body mass index will be given later in this article.

Being overweight is different from being obese, so we're going to treat it differently. You're overweight if your body mass index is more than 25 and less than 30. Being overweight can be dangerous as it is linked with many chronic health diseases.

A person who is overweight will be so heavy, as the name implies, and will be unhealthy. If you are overweight, you have to embark on a weight loss programme. You can find food tips for a successful weight loss programme here.

What Is Obesity?

Obesity is when your body mass index is higher than 29.9, i.e. 30 or more. Being obese is one of the worst things that can happen to anyone and it causes much other problems to the sufferer.

Obesity may not be easily eradicated by an ordinary weight loss programme. If an ordinary weight loss programme does not work, you may have to go for a surgery. However, a weight loss surgery may be dangerous at times, I'll cover this later in detail.

Causes Of Obesity.

Obesity causes are simple and logical. If you have a balloon without any leaks and you keep blowing air into it, it will definitely become bigger, and I refer to this as obese.

However, if the balloon has a little leak, the more you keep blowing, it stays at a size which is neither too big nor small. This is what I refer to as a normal weight. This normal weight, can also be altered by the size of the hole in the balloon. If the hole is big, the balloon is likely to be so small, so you'll be normal weight. But, if the hole is small, the balloon is likely to be bigger and this may be overweight.

Now in real sense. Obesity occurs simply when you consume more calories than you burn as energy through physical activity. This is an incomplete but simple cause of obesity. Like most other health conditions, obesity has a lot of other risk factors which increases your tendency of getting obese which is discussed as follows.

Risk Factors Of Obesity.

There are many risk factors of obesity. This includes...

 1. Genetics.
Genetic study proved that your chances of being obese increases by 25 percent if one or both of your parents are obese. According to these researches, if your dad or mum is obese, start exercising.

 2. Overeating.
This is what most people would think as the main cause of obesity. It starts here, if you don't consume the calories, you won't have to burn any. So, overeating should be checked if you won't lake to be sooo fat.

 3. Sedentary lifestyle.
If you're a regular reader of health blogs, sedentary lifestyle shouldn't be a new thing to you.
It is simply a life of minimum or no activity. It involves not burning those calories after they're actually consumed. You don't want to be fat? Then exercise!

There are also other factors affecting this but that is all that will be covered for now.

How Do I Calculate My Body Mass Index?

As I already stated, your body mass index is one of the most generally accepted ways of checking for overweight or obesity.

The general formula for calculating body mass index is your weight in kilograms divided by the square of your height in metres.

Hence, BMI = Weight(kg) ÷ Height(m²)
Therefore, BMI = kg ÷ m²

For example, suppose a man of 60kg weight has a height of 2meters.
Calculate his body mass index.

Solution.
BMI = kg ÷ m²
BMI = 60 ÷ 2²
BMI = 60 ÷ 4
BMI = 15.

The man has a normal weight.

However, if you can't go through the stress of numbers, you can use online calculators instead.


You read up to this point and you're wondering, why shouldn't I be obese, or why is obesity so bad? This is just what I'm about to reveal to you.

Consequences Of Obesity.

Obesity is known to cause many health problems as I already rightly stated. Some of these problems will be treated in detail.

 1. Diabetes.
Obesity is the major cause of type 2 diabetes, and diabetes is one of the most feared illnesses ever. Obesity can cause resistance to the chemical controlling blood sugar known as insulin. And when it causes insulin resistance, the blood sugar dramatically increases. Type 2 diabetes was common among adults but now, it can be boasted of by adults and children alike.

 2. High Blood Pressure.
When there is additional fat tissue in the body, the work of the heart is increased because it must constantly pump more blood through additional blood vessels. This process causes much pressure on the artery walls thereby increasing blood pressure.

3. Cancer.
It shouldn't be news that cancer is related to obesity. Obesity can trigger the risks of breast and ovarian cancer in women and can lead to prostate cancer in men.

I think you can see all I was seeing when I said obesity is a must-not-have for everyone.
Thanks for following this post up until here.
Cheers!

Orthodontist vs. a Dentist: What’s the Difference?

Posted by with 2 comments
Orthodontist vs. a Dentist: What’s the Difference?

When it comes to the comparison between an orthodontist and a dentist, they are both dental professionals that deal with various problems related to the care and the maintenance of the teeth. The first thought that comes to the mind of people when they think of orthodontics, is the use of braces. Whereas, people think of dentists as specialists that focus on the repair and cleaning of the teeth. If you have a similar thought, you are not too far away from the actual explanation of these experts. When comparing the two, this description is the basic difference between these two professions.

You should know that orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on various related problems that link up to the alignment of the jaw and teeth. This course relates to general dentistry, but professionals need to go through orthodontist education and training to update their skills and knowledge continually. However, compared to general dentists, they do not perform dental procedures often. They do not specialize in extractions, fillings, whitening, and so on but have gone through training in ways where their skill and qualification enables them to address a wide variety of structural problems that relate to the jaw and teeth. The problems they address include oral health problems like underbite, crowded teeth impacted-teeth, and other conditions.

Since this field is a specialized one in nature of the work, as mentioned orthodontists need to pursue continuing education to match up to the requirements in their practice.

The Qualification Duration

Dentists need to spend a good number of years in training, and also need further courses to specialize in, especially if they want to move on to orthodontics. Usually, the training for dental assistants and hygienists could take about two years. Technicians in dental practices can spend about 2-4 years in initial training. The length of their specialization through Gerety Orthodontic Seminars could vary, depending from one country to the other.

Rest assured that through the right qualification, you could keep up with the changing technology in dentistry. It is highly important that every dentist should consider this, as it will enable the use of the latest equipment and techniques.

Dentists have to attend at least four years of the degree before they move on to advanced dentistry. Before giving written and practical exams, they need to move onto advanced dentistry, which should give them the degree and the right license to practice in their education. Their primary concern is to tackle teeth and other related issues that could arise in the mouth, including problems like gum diseases. They perform general checkups, advanced procedures, and focus on repairing the teeth. They also treat young children.

Orthodontic Treatment Can Cure Various Problems

Our smiles play a major role when it comes to contributing to self-image, self-esteem, and self-confidence. Regardless of age, having straight teeth contributes to healthy bite, efficient chewing, and proper speech. Having straight teeth and aligned jaw contribute to healthy gums and teeth, and this helps to alleviate as well as prevent physical health problems. Other than an overbite, underbite, crowded teeth, the common malocclusions they treat include:
healthy teeth

 Buckteeth

 Overcrowding

 Spacing problems, causing impacted teeth

 Poor overlapping of upper and lower teeth

 Wrong side of the lower teeth fitting the upper teeth

 Teeth moving out of their original position

 Wrongly placed tooth

If a person ignores orthodontic problems, these could become worse and require additional and complex dental procedures later in life. Problems like inefficient chewing or misalignment of the jaw, wearing of the tooth surfaces and other similar problems will lead to untreated conditions. Proper orthodontic treatment will help to address such problems and help people to attain a picture perfect and healthy smile that will last for years to come.

Whom Should You Choose?

When comparing the two, you will find that each one has their own specialty or area of specialization. However, if you are searching for an expert who would help you with general oral health problems, you should consider choosing a dentist. For focused problems, you can consult an orthodontist, since they go through extensive orthodontist education and training. Upon completing their basic education, they also go through an accredited residency program.

Becoming an orthodontist may be a hard path for most people. However, it’s surely a worthwhile investment. Upon completion of the programs as an orthodontist, you can earn a lot more than others can. You get the chance to transform the lives of patients. Help them get their perfect smile, and have an overall, healthy oral health.

Getting additional or continuing education is a stressful process for sure, but thanks to virtual learning options, orthodontists can learn from any location. Regardless, the world needs orthodontists, so it’s a good thing that people wish to pursue this career path!

Health Dangers Of Internet Use

Posted by with No comments
We are in the computer age and the use of mobile phones and computers is becoming increasingly popular every minute.

Infact, a 2009 survey confirmed that the 74 percent of the United States Adults were using the internet. It should also be noted that the number is increasing by the second. This would be a whooping amount of people using the internet if it were properly calculated.

Good Reasons Why People Use The Internet.


People use the internet for a great many things, and your purpose of using the internet determines whether it is advantageous to you or not.

Among the many reasons why people use the internet, I was able to outline a few.
 1. The world wide web may be referred to the largest library where you have access to almost all the books, free of charge. Of course, you are reading this for free, and you can even save it as an ebook to share this information with friends, so you have access to this free of charge. And likewise is a great most of the internet.
 2. Communication with friends and families had never been easier before the advent of the world wide web. Nowadays, taking the advantage of facebook and other instant chatting networks, you can easily connect with your friends at the touch of a button. Imagine the good old days when there was no facebook whatsapp or email. If you were to send a message to someone in China from Senegal, you have to write a letter. Also, if you didn't care to mark it urgent, your letter mey never get to its destination, or get there years after, - remembering a story of a man who wrote a letter to his parents and had to collect the letter himself when he returned.
 3. E-commerce is available on the internet, which means you can buy and sell things online on the internet. Sounds great? Best part of it is that you don't have to go to the online store physical warehouse to pick your order, you can have it delivered to your bedroom.
 4. Learning through various means is available through the world wide web. There are millions of videos, ebooks, audio files, softwares, etc. to learn just any thing. For example, we had an awful English teacher at school so when I get home, I have to do thirty extra minutes of English studies, online.
 5. You can start building an online presence for yourself or your business through the internet. Creating a website of yours or simply getting a handle on twitter or facebook where you could easily reach out to customers. Building your business through the internet is a very important step to take these days, as a lot of people are increasingly using the internet by the second. I think you might have heard of the story of a boy who skyrocketed his dad's donut business by writing a single line of tweet. After gathering thousands of retweets, the donut stall became a donut company.
 6. You can now also transfer cash to people on the internet. With the advent of services like payoneer, paypal, etc. It is possible to send money to someone, even countries away. Sounds nice?
 7. So you have no cash to receive or send over the internet, no worries man. You can actually get to earn on the internet. Yes! You can earn a whole lot of cash online doing online things. This has brought a lot of fame and riches to millions, for more information ask Jeff Bezus and Mark Zuckerberg.

These are just a few among the uses of the internet, there are also thousands others too numerous to mention here. However, if you are looking for a comprehensive list, Google is your friend. Before you get carried away, be kindly informed that internet misuse comes with it's whole lot of disadvantages and it's disadvantages may be worse and overthrow all the importance of internet. Before we go to see it's harmful repercussions, it will be good to know firsthand what's internet misuse.

Internet Abuse Or Misuse.


Internet misuse happens when the internet is not used for any of theproductive means it was meant for, or the act of using it in excess.

Internet misuse examples may include wasting of valuable time on chatroom sites, getting addicted to the internet, and using the internet for silly things, such as scamming, exploitation or pornography. All of these actions devalue the internet and make it as nonsensical as ever, no thanks to perpetrators. These actions cause a lot more harm than good and make the internet a tiring place to be.

Were you asked to write a dangers of internet use essay? Smile because in this short article, we're going to treat some ways of internet abuse and some tips on how to stay safe.

Dangers Of Internet Use.


 1.  False Information.

There are up to a billion people actuve on the internet and over 50% percent of this number are searching for medically related information.

These impressive number of people search to get useful information about what they are searching for, but, it's so poor that finding a true reliable source of information on the internet is rare. It is so painful that most of these people get the fake information and therefore are certainly misled by these erroneous spreaders of these poor information.

Also, using the internet to get health related information is related with small but reliable increases in depression. Why is this? Most of the news and information gotten from the internet are not rich to the mind.

Take this as an example.
A person with, say, cancer, navigates to Google and types in cancer. From this, he begins to discover true but scary facts about the illness. He becomes depressed truly.

Though, some of the information about cancer which is scary to him may not be true or may not apply to his type of cancer, he can't stop paying attention to these newly discovered facts.

However, some people may be chanced to get great information from the internet that could even cure the illness you were searching for its cure. Just make sure you contact a medical expert in case you get confused.

 2. Anxiety, Unnecessary Alarm Or Depression.


Some people, like I do are sometimes frightened by information from the internet. This may lead to unnecessary alarm or nervousness to many people.

Some people erroneously share false information to purposely frighten or cause confusion or other problems between people on the internet. Some just do this for reactions, imagine someone posting an article degrading other religions on Facebook just to get likes and shares.

Also, some hate reading or listening to sad news (like me). For example, I felt anxious and nervous when the Ebola virus was declared present in the universe. But once it was declared present in Nigeria, I almost ran out of my skin. This affected me a lot and at last I wasn't chanced to ever see a person with Ebola. Some would even be hospitalized for over-attention to what may not even get to their state.

However, if you use instant messaging applications to message your friends or families, it may have slightly good impacts on your psychological wellbeing.

 3. Health Problems.


Did you know?
Teens who spent more than two hours daily on the world wide web are at a more higher risk of high blood pressure than low internet users, a study revealed.

Frequent usage of the world wide web has been linked to addiction, anxiety and social isolation. People who use the internet frequently tend to dump their social life and spend all their time before a computer, thereby getting addicted to it. This can lead to anxiety and poor relationship with others all these are linked with high blood pressure.

A study conducted by scientists in 2015 as reported by medicalnewsforstudents.com proved that excessive internet use is linked to high blood pressure. This study had 331 adolescents, about the ages of fourteen to seventeen participating. Their blood pressure, height, weight and body mass index (BMI) were taken. They were also asked questions about how much time they spent on the internet.

They were divided into three groups based on the average amount of time they spend on the internet, with people who used more than two hours six to seven days a week were the heavy users. The moderate users used less than two hours five to six days a week while the light users used less than two hours, two to three days a week.

The result of the study showed that 19% of the teens who used two or more hours, seven days a week (heavy users) had high blood pressure compared to the light users who used less than two hours in three to four days a week. Only 7% of this group had high blood pressure.

The result of this study clearly reveals that your internet usage is linked to high blood pressure.

So it is advised that you use the internet in moderation.

 4. Cyberbullying And Exploitation.


Cyberbullying is a dangerous online act which may involve sending hateful messages, or even death threats to people. Cyberbullying involves spreading foul comments on someone's social media profiles or spreading lies about them online.

Cyberbullying is worse than physical bullying because here, teachers can't intervene, and sometimes even, parents can't. Cyberbullies don't see your emotions: freaking, angry, crying, mad? No they can't, and this makes it easy for them to continue.

Cyberbullies may sometimes disguise as victims, especially if they have access to your social media accounts. They may create a degrading chat, and share it for others to see, and people lose trust in you

Exploitation similarly, may be sexual, educational or financial. They may approach as friends and demand to know more about you. When they get all necessary information they need, they'll visit you and demand what they want from you, money, sex, or even people near you like classmates may come as bullies and demand that you help them during examinations.
This can have a lot of impact on the social and mental wellbeing of the victim.

 5. Inactivity!

Inactivity or sedentary lifestyle is one of the worst effects of this particular thing. You cannot possibly be operating your computers while standing.

This causes a lot of problems as sitting is linked with many ills such as fat accumulation in the body or even, some scientists claim excessive sitting cuts a significant part of your lifespan.

So, I think you better drop that phone and go for some exercise.



 6. Pornography.


I'm sure you're all expecting to see this. Pornography is by far one of the most dangerous effects of the internet that existed.

Pornography leads to unhealthy sex life and it is very difficult for parents to know if their children do watch pornography.

Some parents think what should be their main concern is to get their kids not to visit the sites, but they fail to realize that their kids had been probably introduced to porn and they might search for it too.

To make sure kids and adults do not engage in the use of internet for pornography, some measures can be taken, and these measures may include installation of internet filtering software on every computer that can be used to access the internet at the home.

But sometimes, these internet filtering softwares may filter real family websites as unsafe and leave some pornography pages.

If you're trying to monitor your child, it will require using a software that can monitor search history, records, chats and conversations on computers they can access. This way, you can actually know if they visit any of these sites or get these from chats.


Now you know some of the popular effects of internet overuse. Now the next thing we're going to talk about is how dangers of internet use to kids and adults alike can be minimized.

There are some little tips I know that can help the world in seeing that the dangers of internet use can be minimized.

How The Dangers Of Internet Use Can Be Minimized.


 1. Do not rely totally on information gotten from the world wide web. There are people ready to write anything to see their website has visitors and you could unluckily fall into one of those websites. For the most accurate medical information, see your doctor.
 2. Moderate your use of the internet because you already know using more than two hours on the internet per day can be dangerous for you.
 3. Install porn filters on every computer that can access the internet around you. These help in making sure that you are not lured into visiting the porn sites.
 4. Try exercising more than you use the internet. Also, when at work, do regular stretches to avoid sitting at a desk all day.
 5. Monitor your kids use of their phones and computers by setting a time limit and frequently checking websites they visit.

Menstrual Cycles: When To Start Getting Worried

Posted by with No comments
"Hello Jane," Mrs. Cole spoke frantically on the phone. "Where are you?"
"At the pharmacist." Jane replied coolly.
"What for?"
"To buy some drugs for myself, mum."
"Why? Are you ill?"
"I'm having some problems with my period, mum."
"Problem?" Mrs Jane's impatience from not seeing her daughter for a whole six hours was promoted.
"Yes." Jane replied all the same. "I last saw my period thirty-two days ago," Jane stressed.
Mrs. Cole lauged ridiculously on the phone.

Yes, Mrs. Cole should just laugh at the utter ignorance of her dear daughter. Actually, Jane's little problem was not half as harmful as the steps she'd taken to check it.

So, to save my readers from ridiculous mockery like Jane, I decided to write this little article. I do hope you will enjoy reading it.

From this little article of mine, you'll learn about;
Menstruation.
Menstrual cycle.
Irregular periods.
The time for your next period.
Causes of irregular periods.
Preventions of irregular periods.
Treatment of irregular periods.
Conclusion.


Menstruation.


As defined by our good secondary teachers, menstruation is the monthly flow of blood in a female, which often begins during puberty and ends at menopause. A girl is expected to get her first periods between the ages of ten to fifteen. However, it can be a bit earlier or later and this is completely normal because of individual changes.
uterus

You should be worried if you've not had your period at eighteen and I suggest you talk to your healthcare specialist or doctor.

After getting your first period, the whole thing goes in a cycle. About two weeks before another period, ovulation occurs. Ovulation is the release of eggs from the ovary, again credits to our teachers.

This egg travels through the fallopian tube into the uterus. If it is not fertilized, the egg begins to fall apart. Afterwards, the lining and egg leave a girl's body, hence menstruation.

Menstrual Cycle.


As already hinted, menstruation follows a cycle. Your monthly cycle is the number of days from the start of your period to start of the time you get it next.

To know your menstrual cycle, keep record of the day you last had your period. On the day you get your next one, count the number of days in between the two periods, this number is called your menstrual cycle.

You can also achieve the same result by marking each day after your first period on a journal or a jotter. The marks will start on the next day after the start of the period and the last mark will of course be on your next period.

Knowing your cycle is important to avoid embarrassment because you always know the time to get prepared, therefore, your menses won't catch you unawares.

Irregular Periods.


When you start taking records of your periods, you may notice that it isn't clockwork. There may be some variations in your menstrual cycle.

For example, your menstrual cycle may vary by a few days. In some people, the variations are so wide that they may be up to ten or more days different from the previous cycle.

Also, period lengths may also vary. You may bleed for three days this month and up to a week on the next. This two conditions may be totally normal, you smiled, but sometimes it is as a result of many illnesses and infections which you are going to learn about today.

There is no standard period, anytime between 22 and 40 days is okay and quite normal. Oh! Some say twenty-eight? This is just a result of some study average I suppose. It is not a must for your menses to follow this invented schedule.

But before we go into that, there are some things to know, be patient please.

Irregular periods should not be a sort of worry if it is happening to a young girl who is just starting out her periods. It is completely normal. But, if the menses fail to become regular after three years, then I think it's time to see an expert for medical checking and advice.

When you have irregular menses,it is important to know when you're going to have the next period.

How Do I Know The Time For My Next Period.


Your body gives you some signs when it is getting around time for your next period. It is important to be able to read these signs and symptoms so you won't be caught unawares when it's the time for your next period. These signs may include.
  • Headaches.
  • Acne (pimples) breakouts.
  • Uneasy, disturbed sleep.
  • Frequent mood swings.
  • Sore and heavier breasts.
  • Loose stools.
  • Back cramps and stiffness.
  • Bloating.

These can help you easily determine when next you get your period, but its also good to stay aware that these symptoms are not the same in everyone and you may have to smartly look out for yours.

Now, I think all necessary introductions are over, it's time to get into the actual reason for today's article, causes of irregular periods.

Causes Of Irregular Periods.


 1. Hormone Imbalance.

Irregular periods may be caused by hormone imbalances. Hormone imbalances may not totally stop ovulation (which causes menstruation) but may make it vary greatly from month to month.

Also some girls have extra androgen, a hormone that makes hair grow on the face, chest, chin and abdomen. This hormone can also cause weight gain and irregular periods.

 2.  Pregnancy.

This should be the first to be written, just don't know why it was relegated here. Pregnancy is not responsible for irregular periods but it stops the periods totally until the child is given birth to.

You should be more concerned if you recently had sex and your periods did not come at the presumed time. This could be pregnancy, and you may never see your periods again for the next ten months or so.

 3. Extreme Weight Loss And Eating Disorders.

Excessive or rapid weight loss can stop your period, if you become almost underweight or even underweight. You are said to be underweight if your Body Mass Index (B.M.I) is less than 18.5.

Being underweight is just as bad as being overweight because apart from stopping your periods, it may also cause a few other problems like headache, fatigue, etc.

Also rapid weight loss or losing weight without trying to do so also interferes with your periods and you should see your doctor as soon as you notice this.

Also, eating disorders may lead to the consumption of less calories thereby interfering with your period. The number of calories needed for ovulation might not be met thereby stopping or slowing down the process.

 4. Breastfeeding.

breastfeeding

Nursing mothers may temporarily lose their menstruation or have irregular menses.

Why is this?

Prolactin is a hormone responsible for breast milk production. In the course of it's duty, prolactin may suppress the reproductive hormones causing little or no periods.

Having irregular periods due to breastfeeding? Don't worry, it'll return to normal soon after you stop breastfeeding.

 5. Thyroid Problems.

Your menses can also be affected by underactive thyroids or hypothyroidism. This cause longer and heavier flows and increased cramping. You may also experience, weight gain and sensitivity to cold.

On the contrary, overactive or high levels of thyroids (hyperthyroidism) can cause shorter and lighter periods. You may also experience sudden weight loss, swollen neck, anxiety and palpitations.
According to a 2015 study, 50 percent of women with irregular periods are having thyroid problems.

 6.  Uterine Fibroids.

Fibroids are non-cancerous muscular tumors that develop in the wall of the uterus, says our biology teacher. Most fibroids are non-cancerous (not cancer) and can range in size.

Fibroids can cause very painful and heavy periods that can even lead to anaemia. Fibroids is also associated with lots of other issues including low back pain, leg pain, pelvic pain, etc.

Fibroids can however be managed by over the counter treatment. It is also removed medically if it significantly affects your period or is leading to inability to get pregnant.

 7. Obesity.

The single quality that leads to millions of dangerous diseases, obesity!

What is obesity?
You are said to be obese if your Body Mass Index (B.M.I) is greater than 29. Which means, if you're having a body mass index of 30 or more, you are obese.

Obesity causes menstrual irregularity. It causes a great impact on insulin and hormones and we understand that hormone issues are known to cause irregular periods. These interfere with your menstrual cycle. Obesity may also be a sign of hypothyroidism.

 8. Excessive Exercising And Stress.

Missed or irregular periods will be a common incidence to endurance athletes because their excessive exercise may throw away the idea of a timed period.

Also, chronic stress or even anxiety on a small issue can cause an impact on your hormone balance, and from what you've read earlier, you should know that hormone imbalance is the major cause of irregular periods. So, from this, we deduct that stress is a direct cause of irregular or missed periods.


Possible Preventions And Treatment Of Irregular Periods.

If the periods come irregularly just a few times of the year, it is absolutely normal and you should fear nothing, but if you're still worried, there are a few things to try to see to the erring irregularity.

 1. Stress Management.

Stress management tips like meditation or yoga should be followed and utilised properly as stress has been proven to be directly linked to menstrual irregularities.

 2. Avoid Over-Exercising.

Running a marathon or doing all sorts of irregular exercises will definitely lead to irregular menses. Lack of exercise is bad for your menstrual health, and overdoing it is equally bad.
Need to do some exercise, play netball with friends or do some skipping is averagely normal for you. You can also play football or other sports but don't be too rough or you get irregular periods.

 3. Darken Your Rooms At Night.

So silly to put that here, just a story many people believe in. The reason you found it here was that the author of this story believed that there is no story that is not true. As far as darkening your rooms is not dangerous to your health, you can try it out and see if it works out for you.
The efficiency of this has not been proven though!

 4. Medications.

You tried all but doesn't work and your doctor says nothing's wrong. You're anxious and you go for medications. Oral contraceptives can be prescribed to get your period back to normal. But if you prefer the natural treatment, consider black cohash. This medicinal herb is sometimes used for menstrual irregularities and premenstrual syndrome, though scientific studies haven’t verified that black cohash is effective in this sense. Black cohash should not be used if you have any symptoms of or a past history of liver disease.

 5.  See Your Doctor!

The best and last resort.
The doctor is the last hope for the common woman. See your doctor, he knows best.
You should even consider seeing your doctor before taking any contraceptives or over the counter.
If you're having any irregularities in your periods, try talking your parents to take you to the doctor.

Conclusion.

As a woman can not give birth to a child without menstruation, and for the ease of reproduction, menstruation should have a cycle. Every woman should keep track of her own menstrual cycle and try to keep it as regular as possible.
But if it fails to be so regular, it should be reported to a doctor and if it was confirmed to be totally normal, then there is no cause for alarm.
However, if it is abnormal, necessary treatment steps should be taken to ensure one lives a healthie and happy life.
Stay healthy!

I hope these tips helped in solving the problem of irregular period. I'll like to know your views on this post in the comment.
Thanks for reading.

Wish you a happy womanhood!
