Hello, good afternoon, I want to ask, I have menstruation for 16 days this month, before last August my menstruation was also up to 20 days, but in normal September 9 days, the question is safe to have sex in that condition? Thank you

Hi Neni,


Thank you for the question.

Lengthening menstrual duration (more than 14 days) can already be classified as menometrorrhagia. This condition can occur due to impaired hormonal balance, the influence of drugs or contraception, or also due to a certain disease, for example endometriosis, myoma, pelvic inflammation, uterine polyps, uterine cancer, cervical cancer, blood clotting disorders, thyroid gland disorders, and so on. Whether this condition is dangerous or not depends on the underlying cause.


Regarding your question, there is no absolute prohibition in actually having sex in your condition. However, if there is heavy vaginal bleeding, it is advisable to first limit sexual relations involving vaginal penetration. Because, in conditions of heavy bleeding, vaginal lubricants produced are generally inadequate. This is vulnerable to cause painful intercourse and aggravate bleeding.


Better yet, you check your condition directly to the doctor or obstetrician. With a physical examination, ultrasound, pap smear, or maybe other supporting tests, doctors are often able to identify the cause of your complaint, as well as provide the best treatment, for example by administering drugs, education related to lifestyle modification, surgery, and so on.


Hope this helps ...
