Good night. I want a consultation. I have had more or less 3 weeks of menstruation. the first 2 weeks only a little. approximately 1 drop per day. Nnti since the 17th and still continues until today still a lot of menstruation came out. I checked my complete blood count last Thursday and my hb is only 8. I have consulted with the general doctor, he said, maybe the stress factor is due to work and I plan to get married next month. please advise me if my period can stop because I want to walk for more than 3 weeks
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Menstruation that lasts too long or is irregular, can happen for the following reasons:
Stress, lots of thoughts, anxiety
Underweight or overweight
Weight gain and loss too dramatically
Eating foods high in fat or oily
Currently undergoing a diet program
Thyroid hormone disorders
Female organ abnormalities such as cysts on the ovaries and tumors
In your case, it is true that stress can cause you to experience prolonged menstruation, but with such a low hemoglobin level, you should immediately consult a gynecologist for further tests using thyroid function tests and ultrasound to see if there are any abnormalities in particular. on your uterus and ovaries. You will at least be prescribed medication for your menstrual cycle by your doctor, as well as other treatments that will differ depending on the results of your examination.
Meanwhile, live a healthy lifestyle by maintaining an ideal body weight, regular exercise, avoiding stress and cigarette smoke, getting adequate rest, maintaining nutritional intake by increasing the consumption of meat, vegetables and fruit. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
