I have an abnormal period, until today it’s been a month since my period is usually only a week at most… Is there a disease or disorder that causes it?
Hello, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com
Menstruation or menstruation for a month that you experience is likely menorrhagia. Mennorhagia is a condition where the number of menstruation is excessive and can be accompanied by abdominal pain, where the amount of menstrual blood is more than 80 ml per cycle or changing sanitary napkins every hour and lasts for several hours or more than 6 pads per day and more than 7 days. Some of the causes of menorrhagia include:
Endometriosis PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) Pelvic inflammation Hyperthyroid Blood clotting disorders and so on
Do not delay to consult a Gynecologist, to do a thorough examination and find out the cause of your prolonged menstruation and get appropriate treatment, because it is difficult to determine the cause of the symptoms you are experiencing without a direct examination. The doctor will conduct an interview and a thorough physical examination and blood tests in the laboratory, as well as an ultrasound (ultrasound) if needed.
Some of the things you can do are:
Adequate daily intake of nutrients and fluids Adequate rest Manage stress well Avoid smoking and alcoholic beverages Consult a doctor immediately
