Blood Clots Come Out During Menstruation?
Good afternoon, I want to ask .. I have menstruation more than 7 days, menstruation this month on the 7th day came a very large and large blood clot. it continues to this day (9th day), I have to change pads every 2 hours. What should the doctor do? Is that normal?
Hello Anggun, thank you for asking.
Normal menstruation generally lasts between 2-7 days. Although in some people, the normal duration of menstruation is around 10 days. If then there is a significant change in the duration of menstruation, then this is likely to include menstrual disorders. In addition, normal menstrual volume ranges from 25-80 ml. If then menstruation becomes very little or very much, of course it also enters the disorder.
Excessive blood clots so that a person has to replace the pads every few hours, can increase the risk of anemia. Then you should consult directly with an obstetrician. This might be caused by:
Imbalance of reproductive hormones.
Problems with the reproductive organs, such as uterine myomas, ovarian cysts, or endometriosis.
The effect of certain drugs.
Other hormone disorders.
Blood clotting disorders.
Other chronic diseases.
Treatment will be adjusted to the cause. The doctor may have to give medication to stop the bleeding. If necessary, the doctor will examine peripheral blood samples in the lab. Now you try to eat nutritionally balanced food and drink 2 L of water per day, to prevent anemia and dehydration.
Hopefully this answer can help you. Regards.
