Complaints of flatulence and pain in the lower abdomen and a period that is still running after 7 days, may be triggered by the disturbance of your digestive system. If you currently consume diet drugs, then the side effects of diet drugs that are often felt can be bloating, frequent bowel movements, soft bowel movements, diarrhea or stomach pain complaints. This can occur because some types of diet drugs work by increasing the frequency of bowel movements / food disposal and preventing the absorption of food, which sometimes causes uncomfortable stomach effects when starting to consume them. This can be characterized by a more soft form of BAB until liquid. So, if you feel this is bothering you, then you should stop taking this diet drug until you see your doctor.
While there are menstrual complaints that still last for 7 days, while your menstrual period is usually only 4 days, then in general, this is still within reasonable limits, because the normal range of menstrual periods can range from 2-7 days. However, if this complaint recurs in one or two subsequent menstrual cycles or is accompanied by other comorbidities, such as menstrual pain that is getting annoying, vaginal discharge, back pain or excessive menstrual bleeding for more than 7 days, then you should consult your obstetrician directly for further examination and evaluation. So, the doctor can do an examination of your reproductive system related to this complaint.
Some of the conditions below can also provide similar complaints, in the form of bloating and lower left abdominal pain, such as:
1. digestive infection
2. food intolerance
3. food allergies
4. side effects from the ongoing menstrual period
To ensure all this, you should be able to see your family doctor for the first step or directly to your obstetrician to evaluate all the matters that are your complaint. Doctors can conduct interviews, physical examinations and investigations needed, such as blood tests and ultrasound. The results of the examination will be a reference for doctors to ascertain the cause and plan treatment and treatment accordingly.
For now, several things you can do:
1. It is recommended that you stop your diet medication until your condition recovers or until you see your doctor
2. read the rules for using diet drugs that you consume
3. Avoid spicy foods and instant foods
4. Enough water
5. give warm water compresses on your stomach
