Hello Chanchan, Thank you for the question.
The menstrual cycle of each woman does vary, but normally ranges between 21-35 days, which is calculated from the first day of menstruation until the first day of the next menstruation. Non-current menstruation can occur in the first few years after the first menstruation. This condition is caused by an unbalanced reproductive hormone in the body. In addition, several other factors can also contribute to the occurrence of non-current menstruation, namely exhausting physical activity, high stress levels, strict diets, drastic weight changes, obesity, thyroid hormone disorders, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
Birth control pills are one of the treatments recommended by doctors to overcome hormonal imbalances. Birth control pills are pills containing synthetic hormones esterogen and / or progesterone which are usually used as contraceptives. However, in addition to that, the birth control pill can also help overcome menstrual disorders. You can use this pill even if you are young as long as it is recommended by obstetricians and obstetricians. If some of the doctors who examined you have recommended the use of birth control pills, then you can follow the doctor's advice. Some of the side effects of birth control pills are nausea, breast tightness and pain, headaches, weight gain, mood swings, and bleeding outside of menstruation.
