An Overview of Oligomenorrhea

What Is Oligomenorrhea?

Oligomenorrhea is a health issue characterized by irregular menstrual periods. This condition mostly happens in women during the childbearing age. It is normal to experience some variation in menstruation. However, when a woman who often goes more than 5 weeks without menstruating might be diagnosed with oligomenorrhea. It also refers to a condition in which women have no more than 9 menstrual periods in the entire year. Many cases of oligomenorrhea are harmless, but some of them would indicate a more severe underlying condition. [1]
