Long Menstruation And A Little Blood?
I want to ask. I have a 17-year-old younger brother menstruating longer than usual (7-8 days) and the blood that comes out a little too often intermittent discharge sometimes comes out sometimes don’t think it’s normal or not? And is that the influence of painkillers during menstruation before he drank because during menstruation my sister often suffered from weakness, nausea, cold sweat, and trembling?
Menstruation is a natural cycle that occurs in women of childbearing age through menopause. Menstrual cycles normally occur every 21-35 days and last for 3-7 days. Menstrual cycles that last more than 7 days are not normal and are also called menorrhagia. Here are some things that can cause this condition:
Fatigue, heavy physical activity
Overweight or too thin
Hormonal disorders, thyroid hormone dysfunction
Reproductive organ disorders, for example PCOS
Menstrual cycle disorders are not a side effect of painkillers, so it is most likely that the condition is not related to the use of pain medications and is more likely to be caused by other conditions. It is better for your younger sibling to see a doctor if the complaint occurs frequently or is very disturbing
The doctor will ask for a history of your sister's complaints, conduct a physical examination and supporting examinations if needed. Investigations that can be recommended by doctors are blood tests, ultrasound or hormone levels. Aside from treating your doctor, your younger sibling can also make the following recommendations:
Manage stress wisely
Perform a healthy lifestyle
Maintain ideal body weight
Record the menstrual cycle and the length of the cycle, consult the menstrual cycle with your doctor so your doctor can determine the appropriate handling steps
