Hello Ms. Syifa, thank you for the question.
Menstruation is the process of decaying the uterine lining because the egg is not fertilized by sperm. What is assessed during menstruation is the length of menstruation, menstrual cycles, and the amount of bleeding during menstruation. The average length of menstruation in women is 3-7 days but can be a little longer in some people, with menstrual cycles 21-35 days calculated from the first day of last menstruation until the first day of next menstruation, and the amount of normal blood that comes out during menstruation is <80ml or replace pads 2-6 times per day. The amount of blood that comes out will continue to decrease during the menstrual period until it finally stops completely. Changes in menstrual patterns, for example menstruation becomes longer or menstrual cycles shorten or lengthen, or the amount of excessive bleeding can be caused by a serious condition or not. Menstrual disorders are most often caused by hormonal changes, due to stress, drastic weight loss or weight gain, use of contraceptives, especially types of contraception that contain hormones such as birth control pills, birth control injections, or implants, and can also be from age factors, or factors other diseases, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, myomas, hormonal disorders, blood disorders, and so on. If you experience changes in menstrual patterns, you should first observe up to a few days or several menstrual cycles if it is still not normal, it can be suspected of a disturbance. If the bleeding still does not stop, or causes lack of blood, which is characterized by pale, weak, dizzy eyes, etc., it can be consulted to an obstetrician. The doctor may conduct a direct examination on the patient and additional examinations if needed, such as blood, urine, ultrasound, and others as needed. To maintain a normal and regular menstrual pattern, you should eat healthy and nutritious foods, maintain ideal body weight, avoid stress, smoking, and alcohol. Perform regular exercise, adequate rest, and meet fluid needs.
so, hopefully it helps.
