Overcoming Irregular Menstrual Cycles Before Marriage?
Good afternoon, Doctor .. u003cbr u003eBefore I tell you my complaint .. I have irregular menstrual cycles. Back in 2016 I had an ultrasound checked and performed, thank God the results were good, no cysts or mium were seen, and I was given the drug u003cstrong u003eproverra u0026amp; cyclo progynova u003c / strong u003e to improve the cycle. Then in 2017 my cycle improved (although the date was irregular, but routine once in 1 month), and in early 2018 yesterday it was again irregular. Yesterday in June 2018 I checked with the same doctor, the results were the same, he said the ultrasound of my uterus looked good, so maybe it’s just hormonal, and I was given the same medicine as in 2016 to improve the cycle. Incidentally, I really plan to get married in 6 months and have no intention of delaying the pregnancy program. My question is, can I take the drug u003cstrong u003ecyclo progynova u003c / strong u003e from now until the next 3 months after marriage? With the aim to support the pregnancy program. Is it safe? Please info and advice. U003cbr u003e Thank you ,.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
One of the most common causes of irregular menstrual cycles is hormonal imbalance. This condition often occurs due to mild causes, which are related to stress, fatigue, lack of exercise, not ideal body weight, unhealthy diet, or also the side effects of contraception. However, in some cases, it could also be that this hormonal imbalance occurs due to a disruption in the function of the thyroid gland or the pituitary gland in the brain.
Depending on the cause, menstrual irregularities can be corrected in a number of ways, including one by administering hormonal drugs as your doctor prescribes. This drug is made from synthetic progesterone and estrogen hormones, which when consumed can help improve the production of reproductive hormones in the body. Thus, slowly, ovulation (the rupture of a mature egg) and menstruation will run more regularly so that when you get married, the pregnancy planning process can be easier to do.
So, is it safe to take these hormonal drugs regularly before marriage? If you take the drug on the advice and prescription directly from your doctor, then of course this is safe to do. A good doctor will only give his patient treatment if it is felt that the benefits far outweigh the potential side effects that may be caused. However, if you continue to take the drug on your own initiative without the supervision of a doctor (for example, redeem and renew your own prescription), then you should not do this because it can be bad for your own health and fertility later.
We recommend that, before marriage, both you and your partner first check with a gynecologist. Thus, you can re-evaluate the potential for disturbances in both of you that can hinder fertility, for example through blood tests, hormonal tests, ultrasound, sperm analysis, and so on. The earlier this examination is carried out, of course, the faster treatment can be given.
Meanwhile, not only taking medication according to doctor's instructions, you should also live a healthy lifestyle so that menstruation is more regular and fertility is more maintained. You can do this healthy lifestyle starting from taking more disciplined rest, increasing consumption of antioxidant-rich foods, drinking enough water, controlling stress and emotions wisely, exercising regularly every 1 to 2 days, and avoiding smoking and alcohol.
Hope it helps ..
