Menstruation Suddenly Becomes Small?
hello, I want to ask what causes sudden menstruation to be a little ?, and often do not menstruate in a month ..
Hello, good evening Nissia ...
The duration of normal menstrual bleeding in women is around 3 days to 7 days. Generally menstrual blood is very large in number only on the first and second day of menstruation. In conditions when menstruation will be finished, then the blood will be a little. So, it is normal, yes, if menstruation becomes a little after the second day of menstruation ...
Regarding late menstruation, can be caused by various possibilities, including:
physical activity that is too heavy
drastic weight loss or greatly reduced food intake (following a strict diet)
obesity or overweight
hormonal imbalances, for example in adolescents who just had puberty, have just given birth, are breastfeeding, in older women who are going through menopause, women who use hormonal birth control (such as birth control pills, injectable birth control) and so on
disorders of the reproductive organs, such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), which is a disease in the form of small cysts in the ovaries (ovaries).
To ascertain the cause of your complaint, we suggest that you consult and consult with an obstetrician. The doctor will ask questions about complaints, do a physical examination, and if needed the doctor may recommend additional examinations such as ultrasound, blood lab tests, urine tests, and so on. Some conditions that you need to be aware of that require you to immediately see a doctor, among others if:
experiencing late menstruation up to more than 90 days
menstruation becomes more than 7 days
Menstrual blood is very much so you have to replace the pads every 1-2 hours
Menstrual cycles become very irregular
severe pain during menstruation
What you can do at home include: managing stress, avoiding excessive physical activity, consumption of nutritious food, if you are overweight then go on a healthy diet and exercise regularly to achieve ideal body weight, and not smoke.
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
