Early menstrual cycle or period cycle can be the cause of stress or contraception. These period problems or menstruation problems are easily curable via remedies

Early periods or preponed periods might be due to many factors like stress, use of emergency contraceptives or Copper-T(IUD Contraceptive) and other health conditions. If your periods have come within 15 or 20 days of your menstrual cycle, then it is known as polymenorrhea. If this is the case every month, consult your gynecologist to rule out any health complications. If can also be due to nutritional deficiency or excessive stress, which can be dealt with increasing intake of nutrient-rich foods and lower the exposure of stress and practice meditation. 

Stress: When you have stressed numerous hormonal changes occur in the body. It is the release of stress hormones during the stress period, which trigger the production of glucose in the body, leading to high reproduction blood glucose and high pulse rate.

This directly disturbs the menstrual cycle by acting on the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian cycle, thereby leading to your irregular menstrual cycle, which can be early or delayed menstruation.

Oral contraceptives: Unlike oral contraceptives, use of emergency contraceptives might result in irregular periods as they contain high doses of the hormones, estrogen, and progesterone. The drastic hormonal imbalance in the body might lead to bleeding, thereby causing your periods to come early than the regular menstrual cycle. The same is the case with intrauterine devices like Copper-T.

Health conditions: One of the key causes of early periods is pelvic congestion, which could be due to an underlying inflammation in the pelvic region. It gives rise to the inflammation of the ovaries, PCOS(polycystic ovarian syndrome) PCOD and genital tuberculosis might lead to early periods or bleeding.

Other common conditions include thyroid dysfunction and high levels of prolactin, a hormone, in the blood. To know the exact cause of the condition, it is important to consult your doctor and get tested.

Although most people feel that high-carbohydrate and high-fat diet is the key reason for early periods, it doesn’t have a direct role to play. However, intake of excess carbohydrates and fats increases glucose and lipids in the blood, which might lead to obesity, and pose a risk factor for irregular periods.

I think girls should exercise regularly to have a normal menstrual cycle. It helps them in regulating there ovulation as well detoxify the body. Fresh air and sweating balance hormonal level too.
