Women who have made successful recoveries from COVID report suffering from menstrual irregularities. From erratic cycles, later than usual periods, menstrual pain and hormonal changes, irregular periods have been one of the commonly associated complications associated with COVID.
Some women also complain of experiencing missed or skipped periods due to the viral infection. Heavy bleeding is also a common problem some may experience.
While there is no underlying reason behind this, many doctors opine that menstrual problems may be a result of the buildup of stress and anxiety, which could affect hormonal functioning and cause reproductive irregularities.
