Irregular Menstruation In Women Aged 20 Years?
Hello, I’m a twenty year old woman. At first I always menstruate regularly every month, even including frequent menstruation, blood is also normal and the menstrual time can be up to 10 days. But for three months, my period has come a long time and sometimes it’s just spotting, and the next day I don’t go out anymore. Is what I’m experiencing dangerous? Thank you for your answer
Good evening, thanks for the question
Hypomenorrhea is an abnormal menstrual bleeding where the volume of blood produced is only small and lasts for a short time. This condition can be caused by:
1. Psychic stress, drastic weight loss or gain, smoking, or excessive exercise. This can cause hormonal imbalance, causing menstrual disorders.
2. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), which is a small multiple cyst in the ovary. Because the ovulation process will be disrupted in this condition causing menstrual disorders or even not menstruating at all for several months. Other accompanying complaints include excessive hair growth in the body, the appearance of acne, and fertility disorders in married women.
3. Asherman's syndrome, which is the formation of scar tissue in the uterine wall, causing menstrual disorders. Other accompanying symptoms such as cramps and abdominal pain, and infertility.
Menstrual disorders need to be evaluated by an obstetrician to determine the cause. Optimal treatment can only be done if the underlying cause of this complaint is known so that menstruation is expected to be smooth. Therefore, do further consultation with your doctor to be examined.
If you are currently overweight, try to lose weight because in some cases it can trigger menstruation to become smoother. Reduce excessive stressors and exercise regularly is also expected to facilitate menstruation
That's all, hope you can help
