Late Menstruation After Only A Few Menstruation Before?
Hello doctor, I am a 24-year-old woman who has not been married and has never had intercourse. Before I wanted to tell in May on my 15th menstrual period but it did not last long only 4 days. Is it normal? How many months late? When should I have a health check? thank you
Hello Marya, Thank you for the question.
How was your menstrual cycle so far? The menstrual cycle is the time calculated from the first day of menstruation to the first day of the next menstruation. Menstrual cycles are influenced by reproductive hormones in the body and normally range between 21-35 days. Disorders of the menstrual cycle can occur due to hormonal imbalances. Some causes of late menstruation for example:
excessive stress level
too tiring physical activity
drastic weight change
thyroid hormone disorders
polycystic ovary syndrome
Menstruation that lasts for 4 days is still relatively normal.
You can immediately consult an obstetrician and gynecologist for further examination. The doctor will ask for some information then examine you. After knowing the cause, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment for you.
It is recommended that you do the following suggestions:
avoid strict diets, multiply the consumption of nutritious foods
lose weight properly if you have excessive weight
avoid physical activity too heavy
get enough rest
manage stress well
I hope this helps.
