Menstrual Interval Is Only 15 Days, Is It Normal?
I am 18 years old girl. My menstrual cycle is regular, but the distance is short. Suppose I had my first period on the 1st, now on the 21st I have had another period. Is that normal? R nThen in the last few months, my menstrual cycle has been affected by the quality of my diet. At the boarding house, my period was sometimes delayed up to a week. But when I was at home and ate guaranteed, I got my period one week after the last menstruation was finished. Sometimes I also have my period twice a month. How is that?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Menstruation is normal for women of reproductive age. This condition is characterized by the discharge of blood mixed with tissue from a woman's birth canal and is greatly influenced by the condition with hormone levels in the body. Menstruation usually recurs every 21-35 days and each time occurs for 3-7 days. Menstruation that recurs and lasts beyond this duration can be categorized as irregular menstruation.
Irregular menstruation can occur due to various factors, including:
Stress, anxiety, lots of thoughts
Fatigue, lack of sleep / staying up late
Exercise is too extreme
Follow a diet
Excess or less body weight
Weight gain or loss too dramatically
Eat fatty foods
Certain medical conditions
So that in your case, your condition is not normal and most likely it happened because it was triggered by a bad lifestyle. Our advice, try to live more regularly by regularly eating nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit even though you are far from home. Avoid weight gain and loss too fluctuating, exercise regularly and consume more water. If after improving your lifestyle you still have problems in your menstrual cycle, check with your gynecologist for further tests. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
