Heart Catheterization In Women During Menstruation?
Should menstruating women not be able to do cardiac catheterization?
Hello Fitriatul! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Cardiac catheterization is a procedure to look at diseases of blood vessels and heart valves. This examination is done by inserting a small tube into a large blood vessel to be directed to the heart. This procedure is very often performed on patients who experience blocked or narrowed heart arteries. With this procedure, the doctor can find out for sure which blood vessels are affected. Menstruation is not one of the reasons for delaying cardiac catheterization. Maybe the heart doctor who handles patients has another reason. You can discuss with the doctor.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
