Menstruation Does Not Stop Even Though It Has Been Treated, Do I Have To Go Back To The Doctor?
Good afternoon … I am a 29-year-old woman … in a few months my period is irregular … sometimes late … but this month, my period is not stopped … even though it only comes out a little. I have consulted a gynecologist, then given primolut 2×2 and plasminex 2×1 / 5. Doctor’s diagnosis, hormonal imbalance. And asked to check again during the following month’s menses. But until the medicine runs out, my menses come out a little. Like leucorrhoea .. What should I do? Taking medicine again / buying yourself at the pharmacy, not taking drugs anymore, or returning to the doctor? Thank you ..
Thank you for the question.
Irregular menstruation, sometimes late, and sometimes does not stop, it is often caused by hormonal disorders. As is known, menstruation is regulated by a variety of hormones, especially estrogen, progesterone, FSH, LH, and GnRH which are produced fluctuatively in the body. The balance of these hormones can be disrupted due to various factors, ranging from unhealthy lifestyles, fatigue, stress, not ideal body weight, and diets that are too extreme. Some types of drugs (such as hormonal birth control) as well as diseases (such as hypo or hyperthyroidism, pituitary gland tumors) can also cause interference with these hormones.
In addition to hormonal disorders, menstruation can also become irregular if you experience ovarian cysts, pelvic inflammation, cervical cancer, blood clotting disorders, or other chronic diseases.
What sort of treatment for your condition can certainly vary depending on the cause. If indeed your condition is purely related to hormonal disorders, then giving hormonal drugs and several other drugs is the main key. Of course, this treatment cannot work alone. So that the results are more optimal, you also need to compensate by regularly exercising for at least 30 minutes a day, drinking water and eating more vegetables and fruit, not excessive eating instant food and preservatives, wise controlling emotions, not exhausted from activities, adequate sleep, improving hygiene sex organs, only do healthy sex, do not smoke or consume alcohol, and do not carelessly take medication without doctor's advice.
If the handling of doctors and disciplines undergoing the above efforts your complaints still have not improved, then do not carelessly extend or add medicines prescribed by doctors without prior consultation. Go back to your doctor or obstetrician to be given further treatment according to your condition.
Hope this helps ...
