Menstruation For More Than 1 Month And Irregular?
amualaikum,. I want to ask my age is 14 years and 10 months. I’ve been menstruating since December 20th until now it hasn’t stopped. Around until the 20th of January, the menstruation is sometimes heavy, but sometimes a little, generally regular. But lately her periods have been light, even usually during the day she doesn’t come out quite a bit at night. The blood is also sometimes darker, but sometimes brighter. What are the symptoms that include? Please help
Wa'alaikumussalam, wr.wb Dhefy, thank you for the question.
First of all, let me ask if Dhefy just got her first menstruation (menarche) in the last 2 years?
For information, there are many things that can affect a person's menstrual cycle. Normally, women get 11-13 cycles per year, with a period of 3-7 days, and the interval between one menstrual period and another is around 21-35 days. Menstruation can be irregular, especially in the first 2 years of a new person getting menstruation.
In the case of Dhefy, menstruation has occurred for more than 1 month. This indicates bleeding outside of menstruation (metrorrhagia). Some of the conditions that may underlie it are:
Hormonal imbalance High stress level Endometriosis Vaginal infection Ovarian cyst Pelvic inflammation Effect of contraceptive use Cervical disorders (inflammation, infection, cancer) Uterine polyps Abnormalities of blood clotting factors, etc.
If the change in menstrual pattern persists, it is recommended that Dhefy see a specialist in obstetrics and gynecology for further evaluation. If this condition continues, it is unlikely that you will get anemia (lack of blood). The doctor will do questions and answers, physical examination, and support (such as ultrasound, blood tests) if needed and will then provide appropriate treatment. For the time being, stick to a healthy lifestyle by eating nutritious foods, getting enough rest, and managing stress.
I hope this helps.
