Easy & Effective Yoga Asanas for Irregular Periods

Irregular period means either frequent (early) menstrual cycles or late ones.

Their causes may vary as per the age.

1) Adolescent age group (12 years to 18 years – which is called Peri menarchal)

For late cycles, we have to check Hemoglobin & Thyroid status. If needed, medicines should be started. For early cycles, her nutritional status & Hemoglobin should be checked.

 We can advise easy & effective Yogic Postures to this group to correct the irregular periods.

For Late cycles – Surya namaskar, all prone & supine Postures done in sequence is found to be effective. In addition, twisting Postures help a lot. These girls should be motivated for day to day activities too. All Postures are to be done with five or ten counts for repetitions & holding. Slowly these counts should be increased.

For Early cycles – These girls need to practice all forward bending Postures with a resting attitude. For example, Shashankasan, Paschimottanasan, Janushirshasan, Uttanasan can be practiced with head resting on support. They are immensely helped by relaxation techniques like Shavasan, Conscious Deep Breathing, and Bhramari Pranayam.

2) Reproductive age (20 to 35years)
