Factors That Facilitate Menstruation?
Is it true that vitamin C can help to launch menstruation, the problem is that I didn’t have my period, the test was also negative. Did I not get my period because of the effect of 3 months of birth control injections, but I have stopped for almost 3 years, but until now I haven’t had my period? nrnwss
Hello Mrs. Nocrmaee, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Menstruation is a condition that is routinely experienced by every woman, where the uterine wall sheds due to the absence of fertilization and the influence of hormones. Normal menstruation has several characteristics such as a cycle ranging from 21-35 days, a menstrual period of 2-7 days, blood that appears around 40-5o cc and reddish in color. If you do not experience menstruation as mentioned above, then you are likely experiencing menstrual cycle disorders which can be caused by many things. Read the following article: Causes of an irregular menstrual cycle.
If you look at your description, where you have a history of using injectable contraceptives for 3 months and have stopped for 3 years, generally the effects of hormonal influences are gone, but this needs to be re-confirmed considering there are many causes of irregular menstruation. According to some sources, vitamin C can have an effect on menstruation, where vitamin C can strengthen the lining of blood vessels so that the blood that appears due to menstruation is not excessive -- but further research is needed to see the effect of vitamin C in the blood. We advise you to see an obstetrician, so that further examination and treatment can be carried out considering that you have not experienced menstruation for up to 3 years (see also discussion: secondary amenorrhea). It is difficult for us to determine the exact cause if we do not do a direct examination. So much information that we can convey, may be useful. Regards, Dr. Prasetyo.
