I thought she was a doc doctor, but she said her menstruation was late for 3 days and day 4 only came out very little, although she often complained about her breasts hurting when it came to objects, her stomach was hurting like menstrual pain, and her body was weak, easily tired, and aches. what’s wrong doc? does my sister need to be seen by an obstetrician? and what treatment should I do before going to the doctor because my brother was parno to leave the house due to the many infected with corona doc? thank you doc
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Menstruation is the discharge of blood from the endometrial lining of the uterus which decays. Normal menstruation is if the cycle is between 21-35 days, the length is between 3-7 days and the amount of blood that comes out is not just a spots and does not also cause dressing changes every 3 hours or more often the full result. Menstruation will run with the same pattern for at least 3 cycles. So it's only natural if menstruation is advanced or late for a few days while still within the normal criteria above.
Blood discharge from the vagina that is only in the form of spots only, can occur in the following conditions, namely:
1. The first day of menstruation, this is normal.
2. Pregnancy, this is also normal. In addition to not having menstruation and flecks, pregnant women in the early weeks of pregnancy will also experience symptoms of nausea, dizziness, weakness, no appetite and others.
3. Stress, where stress will cause a person to experience hormonal disorders that can result in menstrual patterns.
4. Side effects of contraception.
5. Infection of the inner reproductive organs.
Your sister can make observations until the third day after the first spots appear. During the observation, try to be able to manage stress wisely and live a healthy lifestyle. If your sister has had sexual intercourse in the past 1 month, your sister can do a pack test or pregnancy test in the morning using the first urine from waking up in the morning. If your sister is still confused about the cause of her complaint, you should take it to the nearest obstetrician. Don't forget to use a mask, even if it's just a cloth mask, when you leave the house.
Thus hopefully useful.
