Women may experience a number of menstrual problems during their lifetime.

Regular menstruation is a sign that your body is functioning normally. This is important because it enables a woman to conceive and is also an important predictor of how healthy she is. However, women can experience many menstrual problems during their lifetime. One of the most common problems is irregular periods. A normal menstrual cycle is 28 days long, however, it can last anywhere from 21 to 38 days. A period is considered irregular if you haven’t had a period for more than 35 days or if you have had bleeding within 21 days of your last period. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) is one of the most common hormonal endocrine disorders affecting women between the ages of 15 and 30.

In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Himalayan Siddha Akshar spoke about the same issue and revealed that stress and anxiety are major factors behind irregular periods. “Most of us lead a sedentary life where our daily routine does not include enough physical activity. It is advisable for women to spend some time in various forward folding asanas. Such Asanas increase intra-abdominal compression and correct abdominal and pelvic disorders,” he said.

To help you manage your menstrual cycle, we have compiled some of the most effective yoga asanas:

1. Malasana or Mala Pose
2. Udhu Mukha Savasana or Downward Pose
3. Trikonasana or Triangle Pose
4. Chakrasana or Wheel Pose
5. Budha Konasana or Butterfly Pose

Although regular exercise is essential to ensure normal hormone levels for both physical and mental health, overtraining can result in muscle breakdown and tearing. It can lead to bone and joint injury as well as hormonal imbalance. Hence, it leads to irregular menstruation. Therefore, according to netmends.com, health experts urge women to exercise moderately. They recommend 2.5 to 5 hours of exercise a week to maintain hormonal balance and regulate the menstrual cycle.
