Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Menstruation normally occurs every 21-35 days. Apart from that, the menstrual cycle is considered abnormal. Menstruation should also appear at the same time interval (interval) every month. Based on your exposure, you have had irregular periods, the last of which was prolonged periods. This could be due to the following conditions:
Stress: This condition can lead to hormonal imbalances, which can lead to menstrual irregularities. If the stressor is gone, menstruation is likely to return to regularity as the hormonal conditions in the body improve
Physical fatigue: just like stress, physical fatigue can also cause hormonal imbalance
Diseases in the uterus that result in irregular menstruation, for example pelvic inflammatory disease (there is bleeding that might be mistaken for menstruation), thickening of the uterine lining, ovarian cysts, myoma, PCOS
Perimenopause: is a condition before menopause that occurs at the age of 40-50s. Usually accompanied by a body feeling hot, mood changes, pain during sexual intercourse, etc.
To determine the cause of your complaint, you should further consult with your obstetrician. The doctor will further explore your complaint and will conduct an examination of your reproductive organs. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations in the form of blood tests, ultrasound, or female hormone levels. After that, the doctor will provide treatment for your complaint according to the underlying condition.
Things you can do to treat menstrual disorders are:
Good stress management by relaxing and doing hobbies that you enjoy doing
Regular exercise 3-5 times a week. Exercise can help reduce stress by producing endorphine hormones and can support good blood circulation
Eat regular nutritious foods and adequate calories according to your body's needs. Avoid diets that are too strict as this can lead to hormonal imbalances
Get enough fluids by consuming about 2 liters of water per day
Get enough rest, sleep 7-8 hours per day
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
