Hello, thanks for the question.
Menstruation or menstruation is the process of uterine lining decay because the egg is not fertilized by sperm. Some things to consider when menstruation is the length of menstruation, menstrual cycles, and the amount of bleeding during menstruation. The average length of menstruation in women is 3-7 days but can be a little longer in some people, with menstrual cycles 21-35 days, and the amount of normal blood that comes out during menstruation is <80ml or replace the pads 2-6 times per day. The amount of blood that comes out will continue to decrease during the menstrual period until it finally stops completely. Menstrual cycles are calculated from the first day of the last menstruation to the first day of the next menstruation. If there is interference from one or more of the menstrual components, it can be suspected of an abnormality. Menstrual disorders are most often caused by hormonal changes, due to stress, drastic weight loss or weight gain, use of contraceptives, especially types of contraception that contain hormones such as birth control pills, birth control injections, or implants, and can also be from age factors, or factors other diseases, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, myomas, hormonal disorders, blood disorders, and so on.
In one month, women may experience two menstrual periods, because what is assessed is the menstrual cycle, you can try to count from the first day of menstruation the previous month to the first day of the next menstruation if it is outside the normal range, you should first observe up to several menstrual cycles if indeed still not normal, can be suspected of a disturbance. The color of menstrual blood, especially in the first few days of menstruation is sometimes a little dark, blackish red, and this is normal. However, if you are in doubt or feel menstrual patterns are not normal or not as usual, you can consult an obstetrician, the doctor will do a direct examination and additional examinations if needed such as laboratories and ultrasound. To maintain a normal menstrual cycle, you should eat foods that are healthy and nutritious, maintain ideal body weight, avoid stress, smoking, and alcohol. Perform regular exercise, adequate rest, and meet fluid needs. If menstrual bleeding is felt so much that it causes weakness, pale, headache, and dizzy vision, or accompanied by severe pain you should not delay to see a doctor.
so, hopefully it helps.
