Is It Possible To Fast When The Blood Comes Out After The Birth Control Injection?
Can I fast until now I still have blood for almost 10 days … after the injection, and it stops after 5 days of blood coming out again … can I fast?
Hello, Ridzwan Intji, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
According to your previous history of questions that you asked HealthReplies.com, you are currently on the 3 month injection contraceptive program, right? Menstruation normally ranges from 2 to 7 days. If more than 7 days, you can be said to have menorrhagia. Indeed, one of the effects of 3-month injection contraception is that there is a change in menstrual patterns (can be prolonged menstruation, no menstruation, irregularity, or only spots). This effect will diminish after several injections later. Apart from the effects of the 3 month birth control injection, other conditions that can cause menstrual lengthening are:
1. Hormonal disorders, such as hypothyroidism / low thyroid hormone levels
2. Disorders of uterine tissue such as myoma, endometriosis, adenomyosis, polyps
3. Disorders of the egg bladder
4. Blood clotting disorders
5. Side effects of certain drugs
6. Inflammation of the pelvis
The exact cause can be determined by direct examination by a doctor. The doctor will ask about your complaints in more detail, perform a physical examination, especially on your feminine area, and perform supporting examinations such as ultrasound, hormone tests, urine analysis, and complete blood tests. We recommend that you check with your doctor about this to ensure that this condition is safe. Get checked immediately, especially if there are other symptoms such as stomach cramps, fever, pain during sex, smelly discharge from the vagina, lumps in the genitals, or itching in the genitals.
Regarding whether to fast or not, the HealthReplies.com team is only competent to answer questions from a medical or health perspective. If the blood still comes out a lot, fresh red, then medically it is advisable not to fast first because it prevents the risk of fluid deficiency and anemia (lack of red blood cells). In these circumstances it is advisable to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and consume iron-rich foods such as red meat and green vegetables.
So, hopefully this is useful.
