Abnormal Menstruation And Prolonged Spots?
..rnI want to ask, I have been married for almost 1 year, have no children, I am not on family planning or using contraception. So, on December 23, I started menstruating and ended on the 28th, no clots, just normal blood. In January, my menses went forward on the 16th and it lasted longer than usual, which was until the 24th, there were no lumps either. After that on January 30, I came out again with dark brown spots, it stopped on February 2 – February 3, after that today on January 4 it came out again dark brown with a little pain in the lower abdomen, about a scale of 3 .rnWhat do you think? Ask for advice and explanations..
Normal menstruation in women occurs every 21-35 days with a duration of 3-7 days each cycle. If outside of these conditions, then there is a disturbance in the menstrual cycle experienced. There are several possibilities that can cause menstrual cycle disorders such as:
Menstrual hormone disorders Nutritional deficiencies Chronic diseases such as hypothyroidism, diabetes and others Contraceptive use Side effects of drugs Polycystic ovary syndrome Stress, and others
Menstruation is regulated by hormones in the body. If there is a disturbance in the balance of these hormones, it can cause menstrual disorders. The presence of a chronic disease, can also affect the presence of menstrual disorders. Some medicines can also have side effects that interfere with menstruation. Diseases such as polycystic ovary syndrome that occurs in the ovaries can affect menstruation.
It's a good idea to check with your doctor, especially a gynecologist. The doctor will examine you directly and may carry out the necessary examinations such as blood tests, ultrasound and others. Without doing that, your state cannot be determined. Therapy will be tailored to your condition later.
What you can do in the meantime:
Eat a balanced diet Drink water at least 2L/day Regular exercise Get enough rest 6-8 hours/day Stress management If you are on medication, you can consult your doctor
You don't have to worry too much and don't be afraid to go to the doctor. The sooner your condition is identified, the sooner you can get treatment.
I hope this helps.
