Does Polycystic Kidney Disease Affect Menstrual Cycle

Does Polycystic Kidney Disease Affect Menstrual CycleGenerally, Polycystic Kidney Disease progresses slowly. With the growth of kidney cysts, more and more kidney functioning tissues are replaced, resulting in a series of health problems. For women with PKD, they may suffer from irregular menstrual cycle. Does PKD affect menstrual cycle?

How about the answer?

In the early stage, PKD kidney cysts are still harmless for inherent kidney functioning tissues and patient’s health, because all of kidney cysts in this stage are quite small. Therefore, early-stage PKD won’t affect patients’ menstrual cycle.

However, as kidney cysts expand, they will replace more and more kidney functioning tissues. Then, kidneys lose their ability to remove extra fluid, waste products and toxins. In this condition, women with moderate or advanced stage of Polycystic Kidney Disease tend to be irregular. Generally, when kidney function is less than 20%, a woman has a less chance to conceive. If their kidney disease progresses into uremic stage or they have begun dialysis, their periods may even stop altogether.

Is there any treatment to deal with irregular menstrual cycle for PKD patients?

Fortunately, the answer is yes. If you have this problem, the following methods are worth a try.

1. Erythropoietin treatment: This can improve hormone level and ease anemia, so it can increase patients’ fertility and normalize their menstrual cycle to some extent.

2. Clear Blood Pollution Therapy: It can cleanse the internal environment again and again, so as to remove extra waste products and toxins from the body. In the same time, it can also improve patients’ kidney condition and reverse kidney damage.

Besides, eating some foods high in iron is also helpful to prompt the formation of red blood cells. To learn more about effective treatments to deal with irregular menstrual cycles for PKD patients, you can consult the doctor online or leave your questions in the form below.
