Causes Of Dark Brown Menstrual Blood And Lasts A Long Time?
Hello, I am an 18 year old college student. Permission to ask and consult about menstruation. I usually have a period of 7 days at most. I got my period schedule at the end of March. After finishing, after 2 weeks I got my period again. Surprisingly, the blood that comes out is blackish brown and sometimes a lot, sometimes a little. Until now, it has been 13 days since my period has not finished, and the blood is still blackish brown. How’s that huh? is it dangerous? Thank you
Hello sister milky,
Complaints of faster menstruation, appearing blackish brown, sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, up to 13 days, prolonged (menorrhagia) can be caused by conditions such as endometriosis or chocolate cysts. Pelvic inflammatory infection. Tumors or polyps in the uterus to thickening of the uterine wall. Hormonal disorders in cystpolycystic syndrome and thyroid disorders.
It is recommended to check your condition with a gynecologist, the doctor will examine the physical condition of the abdomen and genitals if necessary, will also dig deeper into other symptoms that are felt such as a history of sexual intercourse or family history. Other examinations that may be needed such as blood hematology, ultrasound examination and ultrasound if needed. The doctor will give antibiotics if there are signs of infection detected, if there is a cyst, periodic observation of the size of the cyst will be considered or hormonal therapy until surgery if necessary. If there is anemia or lack of blood due to prolonged menstruation, surgery can be performed.
What can be done to maintain a healthy body at home such as drinking a lot to replace lost fluids from menstruation, eating nutritious foods to increase endurance and preventing anemia. Keep the intimate organs clean by rinsing the genitals with clean running water and the flow from front to back. Avoid risky sex. Hope it's useful
