Is Delaying Menstruation Good?
Hello, is it good to delay menstruation? Can you recommend what medicine is suitable for delaying menstruation, how many times a day should I take the medicine…
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Menstruation is regulated by reproductive hormones produced fluctuatingly in the body, including the hormones estrogen, progesterone, FSH, LH, and GnRH. Delaying menstruation is possible in medical science if there are medical indications that require it, for example for the worship of certain religious people, and so on.
Why should there be a medical indication that requires it? This is because, delaying menstruation is done by modifying the hormonal balance in the body. Indirectly, this modification of hormonal balance certainly has an impact on your other health conditions, including the effect on the regularity of your next menstrual cycle. This effect certainly needs to be watched out for, especially in women who have never been pregnant or married before.
So, you should first check with your doctor before deciding to postpone menstruation. In the medical world, delaying menstruation can be done by giving drugs, such as hormonal drugs (eg Norethistherone). However, again, this drug is not included in the class of over-the-counter drugs, so its consumption is only safe if it is done on prescription and under the supervision of a doctor.
Hope it helps ya..
