Menstruation Twice A Month And Only Blood Spots?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify beforehand, have you ever had sexual intercourse after your last menstrual period was over?
There is normal bleeding experienced by women who are pregnant, which is called implantation bleeding. This occurs when a product of conception implants itself into the uterine wall but causes a tear in the blood vessel and triggers bleeding. Physically, bleeding from implantation is very similar to regular menstrual bleeding. However, many literatures state that implantation bleeding normally only lasts very short (1-2 days), very little volume (1-2 drops), and is not accompanied by severe abdominal cramps like menstrual bleeding. However, in rare circumstances, implantation bleeding may occur over a longer duration.
If you look at the information you convey, if after sexual intercourse you are still menstruating as usual, and you also feel that you never had sexual intercourse again after your last menstrual period, then without reducing your expectations, it is possible that you are currently not pregnant. The blood that comes out during menstruation is not always heavy and reddish in color. It could also be that menstrual blood comes out in small batches (in the form of spots) and is darker in color due to the non-smooth flow. This can happen, for example, if you are stressed, tired in your activities, doing strenuous exercise, experiencing eating disorders (for example, when you are on a diet), or taking hormonal drugs (a type of birth control pill). It could also be that abnormal menstruation as you experience occurs due to a disease, for example ovarian cysts, endometriosis, pelvic inflammation, and so on.
Even so, you can confirm whether you are really pregnant or not, by doing a test pack. No need to be afraid to do this check. The earlier you do the test pack, of course the sooner your chances of getting pregnant will be known. That way, if it is true that you are pregnant, then you can take care of your pregnancy well. And even if you are not pregnant, then you and your partner can return to the pregnancy program to realize your hopes both.
Or, to get more accurate results, you can also see a gynecologist. In addition to interviews and physical examinations, the doctor will usually perform an ultrasound examination to assess the structure of your reproductive organs in more depth. That way, handling can be done right on target.
What you should do right now is always live a healthy lifestyle. With a healthy lifestyle, if you are pregnant, the fetus in your womb will be more healthy. Even if it turns out that you are not pregnant, a healthy lifestyle is also useful for making your periods more regular.
Hope it helps ..
