Bleeding Outside Of Menstruation?
Hello, I want to ask about bleeding outside of menstruation. In February I menstruate later than a week. In this March, my menstrual schedule returned to normal, however, after a week I was bleeding and after a few more days the bleeding came out. Since the end of January, I have been actively taking birth control pills, but in the past few weeks I had forgotten to take them. Is this due to the birth control pills I take or what? Because at the end of February I also experienced itching in the vulva due to vaginal discharge after recovering after visiting a doctor.
Thank you for the question.
Bleeding outside the menstrual schedule that could have varied possible triggers, such as hormonal disorders, injury to the sex organs, fatigue, stress, the influence of drugs or birth control, pregnancy spots, miscarriages, extreme diets, excessive exercise, perimenopause, also a disease, for example endometriosis, myoma, pelvic inflammation, uterine polyps, cervical cancer, and so on. Your irregularity in taking birth control pills can make your hormonal balance disturbed, thus impacting irregular periods. Itching on your vulva can also be the impact of this hormone disorder. Although it can also, itching in the vulva occurs due to the influence of infection, vaginal dryness, stress, and various other medical conditions.
So that your menstrual patterns return smoothly, it is advisable to be more disciplined to live a healthy lifestyle, including by managing stress properly, do not have sex while still bleeding enough, regularly exercise, eat more antioxidants (such as those found in vegetables, fruit , grains, fish oil, and water), do not stress, reduce exhausting physical activity, and do not also take drugs or herbal medicine. Do not forget, if you want to prevent pregnancy with birth control pills, take it regularly according to the doctor's advice.
If then bleeding out very much (more than 10 pads a day), severe abdominal pain that does not improve with ordinary painkillers, as well as abnormal vaginal discharge (yellow / green, pungent, amounting to a lot), immediately check yourself into doctor or obstetrician. Conversely, if the complaint still improves with the above efforts, it is advisable to remain at home while taking self-care steps to reduce your risk of contracting COVID-19 which is epidemic today.
Hope this helps ...
