Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Menstruation that is not smooth, which is in the form of blackish brown spots, and lower right abdominal pain can be related complaints. Both of these complaints can arise due to ovarian cysts. These cysts are actually not always dangerous. There are also normal cysts, namely follicular cysts and corpus luteum cysts, which will shrink and then disappear in 1 to 3 menstrual cycles.
Pathological (abnormal) cysts need to be watched out for if they often cause complaints, such as severe abdominal pain, irregular menstruation, abnormal vaginal bleeding, to impaired fertility. This condition can occur due to endometriosis, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), and so on.
However, you also need to know that it is also possible for lower right abdominal pain to arise due to other causes, not always related to problems with the reproductive organs. Some of the other possibilities are:
Gastrointestinal disorders, eg appendicitis (inflammation of the appendix), constipation (constipation), obstructive ileus (bowel obstruction), irritable bowel syndrome
Urinary tract disorders, eg urinary tract infections, kidney stones, kidney infections, cystitis (bladder infection)
Others, for example muscle cramps, stress, hernia, and so on
If you've been to an obstetrician and found that you don't have any significant abnormalities, then there's probably nothing to worry about. However, if the complaint does not improve with the treatment that the doctor provides, according to the doctor's advice, you should return to the doctor. In addition to a physical examination, further investigations may be needed as a support, such as an X-ray or ultrasound, to determine the best treatment.
At this time, so that menstruation runs more regularly, and stomach pain subsides, you should get more rest. Warm compresses on the area of your stomach that hurts while hanging your legs higher to reduce pressure in the abdominal cavity. Reduce the habit of lifting heavy objects first. Exercise regularly, eat healthy and nutritious food, and maintain an ideal body weight.
