Postponing Menstruation For Umrah?
Good evening doctor, I’m a 30-year-old woman, I’ve been using an IUD for 5 years,
Hello Sri, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Primolut N is a drug containing Norethisterone, a synthetic hormone progesterone that is given for various conditions such as excessive bleeding during menstruation, dysfunctional uterine bleeding, and can also be given to delay menstruation. This drug is classified as a hard drug that you should not use without going through a doctor's examination first. You should also not be able to buy this medicine without a prescription from a doctor.
For Umrah planning, you will usually be advised to come to the obstetrician 3 months before performing the Umrah for menstrual planning. The doctor will usually start giving a combined birth control pill 3 months before the pilgrimage is performed and continued with the administration of the progesterone birth control pill only 3 days before the estimated next menstruation. This kind of planning is the most ideal menstrual planning to do. But because now it is less than 3 months before you do your pilgrimage, then you should immediately go to an obstetrician for planning progesterone birth control until you go home later. Giving Primolut N is recommended to be done 3 days before the estimated next menstruation and can be continued up to 10-14 days (as needed).
IUD installation does have side effects, including:
abdominal pain and back pain a few days after the installation of the IUD out spots between menstrual cycles irregular menstrual cycles more menstrual blood discharge and longer menstrual pain during menstruation The side effects mentioned above usually occur only the first few months after installation of the IUD only. If after 5 years of installing an IUD you still often experience spots and other menstrual problems, it helps you discuss again with the obstetrician who installed your IUD.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
