Menstruation Often Hurts After Appendectomy?
Hello, I want to ask about menstruation. R nI have had appendicitis surgery 2 years ago, so after the operation, I was on my period. menstrual period. Before, I was just sick, that’s what I used to be, but the months of the year were normal until now when menstruation hurts in the lower abdomen above the genitals.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In general, appendectomy has no direct effect on menstruation, even if it is done when you are menstruating. Judging from the complaints you convey, the focus is on pain during menstruation, which can happen because:
Endometriosis or the growth of uterine tissue outside the uterus
Pelvic inflammatory disease or infection of the female organs
Fibroids or abnormal growth of tissue in the uterus
So our advice is that you should check your condition with an obstetrician for further examinations in the form of extracting your medical history, doing a physical examination, perhaps by looking directly at your female organs, and supporting examinations using ultrasound and blood checks. The treatment you will receive later depends on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, to relieve pain during menstruation, what you can do is take over-the-counter pain medications by reading the rules of use first, or by warm compressing your stomach. You can also take a warm bath, exercise regularly, and take dietary supplements such as vitamins B1, B6 and vitamin E to relieve menstrual pain. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
