Having Sex During The First Day Of Menstruation?
Hello, I want to ask, I was having menstruation on the first day, but I had sex with a partner because I thought it was still a little blood, it was okay … before I was not menstruating for 3 months, because I went for medical treatment and took medicine from my doctor again … So, my question is, is it because I have sex on the first day that my menses will be irregular? Thanks for the info, please …

Sexual intercourse, will not necessarily cause menstruation to be irregular. The regularity of menstruation is more influenced by the balance of reproductive hormones circulating in the blood, for example the hormones estrogen and progesterone. This hormonal balance can be disrupted due to various reasons, including unhealthy lifestyles, side effects of using hormonal contraception, obesity or obesity, experiencing mental stress (such as when under stress or anxiety), or also if you suffer from certain diseases, such as hypo or hyperthyroidism. Apart from hormonal balance disorders, menstruation can also become irregular due to problems in your reproductive organs, for example due to polycystic ovary syndrome, pelvic inflammation, endometriosis, and so on.
If your menstrual irregularities only occur occasionally, often this condition is not dangerous. But indeed, to overcome this, often requires a long time. Handling of irregular menstruation is also not enough to do only with the consumption of a doctor's medication, but must also be balanced with a healthy lifestyle, such as adequate sleep, diligent exercise, multiply the consumption of foods rich in antioxidants (such as fruits, vegetables, seeds, whole grains, fish oil), drink enough, while avoiding cigarettes and alcohol. If these steps have not succeeded in making your menstruation more regular, it is advisable to check again with your doctor or obstetrician so that a more in-depth examination is done to rule out other diseases as mentioned above.
Having sex during menstruation is not absolutely prohibited. Although it will not necessarily make menstruation back irregular, excessive sex during menstruation can increase your risk of infection and irritation of the intimate organs, because vaginal conditions tend to be dirty and vaginal lubricant production decreases. Not only that, sexual intercourse during menstruation also generally will be painful and uncomfortable. Our advice, if you want to have sex, you should be patient until your period is over ..
I hope this helps.
