Hello doctor. My doctor wants to ask. Is there an effect on the stomach massage with the arrival of menstruation?
From the info you have given, in general, abdominal massage does not affect your menstrual cycle. The menstrual cycle is influenced by the hormonal work of the woman, which increases the thickness of the uterine wall and then triggers the shedding of the uterine wall which is called menstruation. Therefore, abdominal massage does not cause menstruation or affect menstruation.
So if you have complaints related to your menstrual cycle, then you should consult directly with your obstetrician, especially if you have complaints about menstruation in 2 or 3 menstrual cycles and these complaints still persist or are still bothering you.
To help the menstrual cycle run smoothly, you should:
1. avoid stress
2. avoid physical exhaustion
3. Avoid sleeping late
4. idealize your weight
5. Do regular exercise
That is the information we can convey, read also the discussion.
