Late Menstruation And Frequent Urination?
nnyrnrnDoc I want to ask why am I late “I urinate a lot every night and I’m getting my period, it’s been 3 days late, what’s the sign?
Thanks for the question. Frequent urination can occur if you consume a lot of fluids or because of the side effects of consuming caffeinated/alcoholic beverages. But frequent urination can also be caused by several medical conditions. This complaint can be accompanied by pain during urination, difficulty holding urination, feeling incomplete after urinating, urine mixed with blood, strong-smelling urine, lower abdominal pain, backache, fever, nausea, vomiting. Complaints of frequent urination can be caused by urinary tract infections, kidney stones, overactive bladder, vaginal infections (eg bacterial vaginosis, yeast infection), urethritis or inflammation of the urinary tract, and anxiety.
Delayed menstruation can be caused by the following conditions:
excessive physical activity
drastic weight change
high stress level
being sick (physical stress)
use of hormonal contraceptives
thyroid hormone disorders
If there is a possibility of pregnancy because you previously had sex, you can try to do a testpack after your period is at least a week late. If the results of the test pack are negative and you have not had your period until the following week, you can repeat the test pack at that time, or immediately consult an obstetrics and gynecologist for further examination.
If the complaint of frequent urination is accompanied by other complaints, you should also consult a doctor for further examination. Your doctor may need to do a urine test and an ultrasound to look for the cause.
Meanwhile, do the following suggestions:
eat more nutritious food
avoid strict diets
keep your body weight ideal
exercise regularly but avoid excessive physical activity
try to manage stress well
drink more water
avoid holding BAK
limit the consumption of caffeinated drinks
Hope this information is useful.
