Reasons for irregular periods after marriage

• Hormonal changes are common after marriage and can lead to cysts in the ovaries, changes in the menstrual cycle and trouble in getting pregnant.
• Generally, a woman becomes sexually active after marriage and starts taking birth control measures such as pills. These pills alter the oestrogen levels in the body. The body needs time to adjust to these increased hormonal levels. Therefore, there is a change in the time, amount and regularity of the periods.
• Post marriage, a woman may go through either weight gain or loss. Since a hormonal imbalance occurs, the body takes a while to adjust to the changes and that leads to irregular periods.
