The occurrence of menstruation is much influenced by reproductive hormones that are released fluctuatively in the body. Although, menstruation itself does not directly cause your complaints. However, hormonal fluctuations in your body can also trigger these complaints.
Hormonal fluctuations during menstruation often make stomach acid production increase. This accumulation of stomach acid in the digestive tract often makes the stomach look bloated. It could also be other complaints, such as nausea, stinging, tightness, bloating, and a lump that feels dominant in the solar plexus, but can also spread to the chest, throat, and other abdominal areas. During menstruation too, the uterine muscles often contract enough to release the menstrual blood. This muscle contraction can indirectly make the blood flow that supplies cells in the uterine wall become uneventful, then arises pain. Under normal conditions, this pain is dominant in the lower abdominal area. Although, do not rule out the possibility of pain spreading to the genitals or lower back.
Not only because of hormonal fluctuations during normal menstruation, your complaints can also be caused by other factors, for example:
Causes of distended stomach: pregnancy, obesity, lack of exercise, unhealthy eating patterns, myoma, other tumors in the abdominal cavity, body dysmorphic disorder Causes of vaginal pain: endometriosis, vulvovaginitis, bartholinitis, irritation due to excessive sexual intercourse, irritation due to use of chemical products certain (for example, vaginal deodorizing soap, spermicide), etc. You can first resolve your complaint with the following tricks:
Increase exercise, for example sit ups, lifting weights, jumping rope, squat jumps, yoga. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Get used to eating before bed Do not overeat eating instant food and preservatives Compress the painful vagina with warm compresses, or soak in warm water Always keep clean vaginal area and surrounding areas Do not use chemical substances carelessly around the vagina Do not have risky sex If the handling of the above complaints you still do not get better, immediately check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician to be given the best treatment huh
I hope this helps.
