2 Disordered reproductive cycling Disordered menstrual cycling can arise for a number of reasons. Stress, excessive or intense exercise, smoking, ovarian or uterine disease, use of certain medications and treatments such as chemotherapy, drug abuse, illness, and emotional traumas have all been shown to impact upon hypothalamic and ovarian production of hormones. Any problems with secretion of LH, FSH, or estrogens will impact upon the normal reproductive cycle, with several possible outcomes. In some women, menstrual cycles cease entirely (amenorrhea), or the cycle may become excessively long, perhaps lasting for 45–90 days instead of the usual 28 (oligorrhea).
