Causes Irregular Menstruation?
Good evening doctor, I want to ask about the use of amixicilin. So a few days ago I had a fever and went to check myself, after getting some treatment and taking medication from a doctor (paracetamol, and amoxicilin) the fever was cured. However, I used to have regular menstruation arrives “experiencing menstruation with unusual blood characteristics (not like normal menses and occurs 2 weeks after a normal menstrual period), is there really an influence from the amoxicillin drug I consume (because of the health site amoxicilin can be used for cases of genital infection) so that it affects menstruation and blood? Do you need further consultation and treatment?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
If judging from the history of treatment that you live, you should have an earlier period that does not occur due to the direct influence of these drugs. However, it could be that your menstrual disorders have something to do with the disease you experienced before (which caused you to have a fever).
Menstruation is regulated by reproductive hormones that are produced fluctuatively in the body, influenced by the activities carried out, eating patterns, psychological conditions, weight and height, history of illness, and medications that may be consumed. Frequently, menstruation becomes irregular (including appearing earlier than scheduled) due to the disturbed balance of reproductive hormones. The trigger can be due to fatigue, stress, excessive weight changes, excessive physical activity, side effects of drugs or contraception, to disorders of the thyroid gland or the pituitary. It could also, menstruation occurs more quickly due to interference with your reproductive organs, such as myomas, uterine polyps, pelvic inflammation, endometriosis, and so on.
Your condition that was previously sick to a fever, which is usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection, can trigger the body to produce excessive stress hormones. The impact, the balance of reproductive hormones can be disrupted because of it. This is what can indirectly make your periods irregular. Even so, it does not rule out your menstrual disorders also aggravated by other conditions as mentioned above.
Therefore, you should first do the following steps so that your period runs more regularly in the following months:
Only consume medicine if it is prescribed by a doctor Always maintain ideal body weight, do not be too fat, do not overdo diet too much Exercise 3 to 5 times a week Do not overeat instant foods, preservatives and high calories Increase in eating fruits, vegetables, and whole grains intact Don't smoke or consume alcohol Don't think too much so you don't stress Enough rest, at least 6 hours a day If in 3 months your complaints are still recurring, you should go to see your doctor directly or a gynecologist so that your condition can be handled properly according to the cause huh ..
I hope this helps.
