Low Hb Relationship With Menstruation?
Hello, my doctor Yohana is 27 years old. Is there a relationship between low HBs with or after menstruation?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ..
Menstruation is a period of periodic decay of the uterine wall. Normally the duration of the cycle is 28 days, with an average duration of 3-7 days. The amount of blood that comes out as much as 20-60 milliliters or the equivalent of replacing 3-4 pads per day. In some circumstances, menstruation can be more than 7 days, and the amount of blood that is removed is also more than normal. This can result in reduced red blood cells in the body, or can be called anemia. Lack of anemia in the body can cause several conditions in the body such as lethargy, unstable emotions, headaches, so the heart beats faster.
To prevent anemia due to excessive menstruation, some things can be done is by taking blood booster supplements, consumption of foods containing iron such as red meat, green vegetables, nuts. Consumption of vitamin C can also help the absorption of iron more optimally, do not forget also to consume water at least 2L per day, and adequate rest.
But if you experience complaints such as looking pale, lethargic, blurred vision, and other symptoms of anemia, while there are no complaints in menstruation. It is better to consult a doctor directly so that the doctor can examine the physical examination thoroughly and perform additional examinations such as blood sampling.
Thus my answer, hopefully help you.
