Pain During Menstruation Accompanied By Heartburn?
Good afternoon, I’m Lutfia. I am 19 years old, I have had my period since I was 13 years old. I have never experienced menstrual pain so far. However, the last 3 months I experienced menstrual pain and was accompanied by pain in the solar plexus. Is this normal? Thank you
Thank you to overcome the question.
Severe menstrual pain usually occurs due to hormonal fluctuations that stimulate the uterine muscles to contract excessively, thus clamping the blood vessels, and cause uterine cells to lack oxygen. This condition, besides causing pain, can also trigger an increase in stomach acid so that pain in the lower abdomen due to menstruation often spreads to the solar plexus.
However, besides normal conditions, menstrual pain as well as extreme heartburn as you experience may also indicate a disease, for example dyspepsia, endometriosis, pelvic inflammation, myoma, side effects of KB, stress, unhealthy lifestyle, hormonal balance disorders , etc.
This condition should be examined directly to a doctor or obstetrician to be further evaluated, starting with a physical examination, ultrasound, or other supporting tests. If necessary, the doctor can also coordinate with an internal medicine doctor to provide the best solution for you.
In the meantime, you can first overcome the pain that appears by applying warm compresses to the stomach and the pit of the stomach. Do not forget, multiply rest, eat more regularly, avoid excessive emotions or excessive stress, diligently exercise every day, do not smoke, stay away from alcohol, and do not also take drugs without doctor's advice.
Hope this helps ...
