Platelet Values increase When Menstruation Is Not Smooth?
Morning, I went to the obstetrician yesterday. My menstrual cycle is not smooth and I often experience excess menstruation until my hb is only 4.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
When menstruating, normally a woman will bleed around 30 to 40 cc per cycle. Your condition with excessive menstrual bleeding and non-smooth menstrual cycles can be classified as menometrorrhagia. This condition can occur due to various factors, for example hormonal balance disorders, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, uterine polyps, myomas, uterine cancer, cervical cancer, bleeding disorders (for example due to blood cancer or spinal cord abnormalities), side effects of drugs, thyroid gland disorders , etc. It could also, if you use hormonal contraception (such as injectable birth control, birth control pills, or IUDs that contain hormones), your excessive menstruation occurs due to the side effects of the contraception you are using.
Quite massive bleeding, including due to excessive menstruation, can make sufferers experience anemia (low blood hemoglobin). Furthermore, excessive bleeding can also cause reactive thrombocytosis, which is a condition where platelet levels increase beyond normal values. This condition is what you are experiencing right now.
You should consult directly with an obstetrician who checks you in regarding your complaint. With a thorough examination, not just through a laboratory examination, but also involves ultrasound or other supporting tests, doctors are usually able to give you the best treatment, for example by administering drugs, surgery, blood transfusion, or other medical measures.
In the meantime, you should rest more (if necessary, bedrest). Also drink and consume foods that contain lots of vitamin K, for example red meat, dark green leafy vegetables, sea fish, and nuts. Do not forget, always live a healthy lifestyle, don't stress, and don't also consume drugs carelessly without advice from a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
