Menstrual Blood Is Dark And Clot And Pain In The Genitals?
good afternoon,. I want to ask, right now I am menstruating on the 2nd day, but the blood during menstruation is dark and clotted, and pain in the genitals. Is the pain during menstruation still a normal thing ?? Or are there other indications? Explanation please
Thank you for the question.
Menstruation with dark and clot blood accompanied by pain in the genitals may or may not occur. Menstrual blood that does not come out immediately can indeed clot and appear darker due to the normal blood clotting process. Likewise, pubic pain during menstruation, this condition can also normally occur due to the influence of uterine muscle contractions during menstrual bleeding.
However, in some rare conditions, indeed your complaint can also refer to a disease, such as endometriosis, myoma, pelvic inflammation, adenomyosis, and so on. In cases like this, complaints usually do not only occur occasionally, but continue over and over several menstrual cycles. It is not impossible, your fertility is also disturbed because of these diseases.
If this is your first complaint, you should not worry too much. Resolve the complaint with the following steps:
Drink more, especially warm water
Compress painful genitals with warm water, or soak in warm water
Wear comfortable clothes, not too tight
Get more rest
Do not carelessly take medication, including menstrual smoothing drugs or menstrual pain relievers, without a doctor's prescription
Be more diligent in eating fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants
Do not always have excessive sex when menstruating
If then your complaint continues or feels very disturbing to you, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician to be given the best solution according to the underlying conditions.
I hope this helps.
