Diarrhea When Menstruating, Is It Natural?
Good morning, I want a consultation since the 7th yesterday I menstruated and mixed with diarrhea until now usually after I menstruate the diary already stopped how come it’s still until 3 days huh
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Until now, there has been no research on the relationship between menstruation and diarrhea. If this happens in each of your menstrual cycles, then there might be a connection. However, of course this is very individual, which in you may be like that but not necessarily in other women.
Previously, we need to say, that medically speaking with diarrhea is if the bowel movements occur more than 3 times a day or if the stool consistency becomes liquid. Is that the case with you? Generally, diarrhea is caused by bacterial, viral or parasitic infections. Such diarrhea will be rapid (acute), where the diarrhea will improve in less than 2 weeks. However, if diarrhea lasts more than 2 weeks (chronic), then diarrhea is suspected to be caused by inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis or khorn disease.
The most common cause of diarrhea is a viral infection. Where this condition can improve by itself without special treatment. Generally, diarrhea will improve within 3-5 days. However, if diarrhea lasts more than 5 days, there is a possibility of diarrhea caused by bacteria or parasites.
Therefore, consult with your nearest doctor if the diarrhea lasts more than 5 days. Meanwhile, you should consume ORS every time you have diarrhea. Avoid eating foods high in fiber. And eat soft foods until the diarrhea improves to ease the work of your intestines.
Thus hopefully useful.
