Menstrual Cycle Is Only 18-25 Days Is It Normal?
Hello, I’m a princess, 23 years old. A normal menstruation cycle is 25-35 days. I just found out I’m 18-25 days. Including not normal right? Guess “because of what? Can you overcome it? Thank you.
Good evening Putri, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Menstruation or menstruation is a normal process that occurs in women during their reproductive age, from adolescents to around middle age. This condition is characterized by the release of blood mixed with tissue from the vagina with a duration of 3-7 days, and will recur at 21-35 days later. The 25-35 days that you get is also correct and does not need to be questioned because the difference is not too significant.
But if it has reached 18 days, and that number changes each month, for example now 18, then later 25, then 21, then 27 and so on, you can say the cycle is irregular, and among the possible causes are:
Body weight that is not ideal, excess or less
Weight gain that goes up and down is too drastic
Stress or mental stress
Fatigue or lack of sleep
Currently in a diet program
Consume too much oily and fatty food
Experiencing thyroid hormone imbalance
Experiencing female hormonal imbalance
And it could also be other causes depending on the results of the examination. So if indeed you experience menstrual irregularities like that, our advice should you consult a gynecologist for further review. Your doctor will later conduct a history through interviews, physical examination and possibly support if necessary by ultrasound. The handling that you will receive later depends on the results of the inspection.
Meanwhile, maintain a healthy lifestyle by avoiding cigarettes, maintain ideal body weight, regular exercise according to ability, adequate rest, multiply the consumption of fruit, vegetables and water, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
