A normal menstrual cycle spans 21-36 days with bleeding lasting an average of 5 days. When the cycle is short a women can have very little ‘tahor’ time and miss the fertile window. When cycles are erratic, life becomes very unpredictable.
When staining occurs after the completion of menstrual bleeding, either during the ‘7 clean days’ or after tevila, it can be very frustrating and difficult for a couple to deal with. This may be a minor issue, or a symptom of something more complex.
When menstrual bleeding lasts for more than 7 days, tevila is delayed, leaving less ‘tahor’ time, and often causing couples to miss their fertile window.
SEVERE MENSTRUAL PAIN
When a woman experiences such severe pain before or during her period that it puts her out of action, it is important to check for conditions like endometriosis and adenomysis – displaced cells in the reproductive system. These conditions should be diagnosed by an expert in this sub-specialty.
A very common issue manifesting itself in many different ways, PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome affects the function of the ovaries, causing a host of side effects, sometimes making it impossible to conceive. Each situation requires careful evaluation and a unique treatment plan.
Affecting one in seven couples, infertility is challenging – physically and emotionally. Whether primary or secondary infertility, with male or female factors at play; a careful and sensitive approach is required with expert knowledge of the ever-developing treatment options serving as a powerful tool.
Early pregnancy loss is common. The further the pregnancy has developed, the less common and the more complicated the situation can be. It is important to make an informed decision about ending the miscarriage, follow-up and moving on.
When the life of an unborn baby is at risk, the importance of receiving the best care and making informed decisions is paramount. It is necessary to be aware of any changes indicating possible complications and to maintain contact with your medical provider throughout.
BLEEDING IN PREGNANCY
Bleeding in early pregnancy can be common and may not indicate a problem. However bleeding can be a warning sign of a miscarriage or other complication so immediate advice should always be sought.
Bleeding for 6-8 weeks after birth is normal. Prolonged bleeding or staining may be caused by a hormonal imbalance, placental remnants in the uterus, ectropion or post-caesarian niche among other issues. It is important to determine the cause of the problem in order to find the most effective solution.
PHYSICAL INTIMACY DYSFUNCTION
There are several conditions which can make marital intimacy extremely difficult and frustrating. These include vulvodynia and vaginismus, which until recently were not medically recognized and still often go undiagnosed. Severe pain during intimacy must be explored as the effect of these conditions are far-reaching and solutions are available.
With the many methods and brands of contraception available, choosing the right method can make all the difference. Contraception must be selected with caution depending on your age, stage of life and medical history.
Hot flushes, night sweats and mood-swings can all be part of the transition from pre-menopause to menopause. But the hormonal changes can also cause cycles to shorten, lengthen and everything in between. The Tahara implications can be difficult to deal with, yet possible to manage.
A sensitive cervix is easily irritated and may bleed. Conditions like a cervical ectropion – where the cells from inside the uterus grow on the cervix, can cause light cervical bleeding. It is important to determine where the blood is coming from, find the cause and treat it correctly.
Unusually heavy menstrual bleeding, spotting between periods, cramping and bloating may be symptoms of benign uterine growths such as polyps and fibroids/myomas. These are quite common and not always problematic. There are various methods of treatment and an informed decision should be made.
