Hello Zahra, Thank you for the question.
Infection of the fallopian tubes / tubes can cause inflammation of the fallopian tubes or what is known as salpingitis in medical language. In general, salpingits are caused by bacterial infections, mostly due to sexually transmitted infections, namely gonorrhea or chlamydia. Salpingitis causes symptoms of abnormal vaginal discharge (discolored, smelly, change in consistency), bleeding outside the menstrual period, lower abdominal pain, pain during menstruation, pain during intercourse, fever, nausea, vomiting. Treatment of this condition is to use antibiotics for a certain period of time. This infection can reoccur if you get a bacterial infection again, for example because of unprotected intercourse (condoms).
Irregular menstruation can be caused by the influence of fluctuating reproductive hormones, for example because:
high stress levels
excessive physical activity
weight less or more than normal
changes in weight drastically
thyroid hormone disorders
polycystic ovary syndrome
Don't hesitate to consult an obstetrician and gynecologist if you are worried about this irregular menstruation. The doctor needs to examine you to find the cause and determine the next treatment.
You can do the following suggestions:
avoid changing partners
advise your partner to use a condom to prevent sexually transmitted infections
immediately see a doctor if you experience vaginal discharge that is not normal
manage stress well
avoid excessive physical activity
improve your diet, avoid strict diets
I hope this information is helpful.
