Menstrual Cycles Are Short And Last Long?
I want to ask, my period is less than 15 days, and if menstruation can last up to 2 weeks and the blood that comes out also flows a lot, doctor, why is that ???
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The normal menstrual cycle is 21-35 days. The normal menstrual period is 4-7 days. While the amount of blood that comes out is said to be normal if not more than 80 CC per menstrual cycle. If it does not fit into the normal range above, it is called menorrhagia menstrual disorder.
Menorrhagia can occur due to the following conditions or diseases, namely:
1. Hormonal disorders that can be triggered due to excess weight or obesity and excessive exercise.
2. Organic diseases of the reproductive system, such as endometriosis, uterine myomas, uterine polyps and others.
3. Systemic diseases, such as blood clotting disorders.
You should consult with an obstetrician in order to get an examination and the right treatment according to the cause. The doctor will conduct a medical interview and direct physical examination. If you are married, the doctor will do a direct examination of the vagina to the cervix by opening the vaginal canal using a special tool called Coco Duck. The doctor will do an IVA examination (visual inspection of acetic acid) and proceed to take samples for Pap smear examination. The examination aims to see whether there are changes in cells or tissues in the cervix or cervix that lead to infection or pre-cancerous growth or cancer. The doctor will also conduct an ultrasound to assess the condition of the ovaries, ovaries and uterus. If needed, other supporting examinations will continue.
Meanwhile, adjust your diet regularly. Avoid overeating and avoid consuming foods that are high in fat. You should do exercise, but exercise with mild to moderate intensity with a total exercise time of 150 minutes for a week. Because a lot of blood comes out, it is feared that you have anemia, for that consume foods high in iron (such as red meat, beef liver, tuna, salmon, soybeans, and spinach), vitamin B12 (shellfish, crabs, salmon, you can read sardines, tuna, etc. you can read here) and folic acid (broccoli, green vegetables, avocados, nuts and others). You can also get all three micronutrients from food supplements.
Thus hopefully useful.
