Hello, thanks for the question.
Birth control pills are one type of contraception to delay pregnancy that contains hormones. One of the drawbacks of this birth control pill is that it makes menstruation irregular, both long and menstrual cycles. Menstruation is the process of uterine lining decay because the egg is not fertilized by sperm. The average length of menstruation in women is 3-7 days, but some also last up to 10 days, varying each individual, with menstrual cycles of 21-35 days. Menstrual cycles are counted from the first day of the last menstrual period up to the first day of the next menstruation. The normal amount of blood that comes out during menstruation is <80ml or replace the pads 2-6 times per day. Menstruation that extends more than 10 days, abnormal menstrual cycles, or the amount of bleeding that exceeds normal can be caused by several things, such as hormonal changes due to stress, drastic weight loss or gain, use of contraceptives, especially types of contraception that contain hormones such as birth control pills, birth control injections, or implants, age factors, or other disease factors, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, myomas, hormonal disorders, blood disorders, and others. It is best to observe for several days or several menstrual cycles, if bleeding occurs a lot and lasts a long time, especially until it causes weakness, pale face, cold sweat, dizzy vision, difficulty concentrating, or if complaints occur within 3 months of the cycle menstruation in a row should consult a gynecologist, the doctor will do the answer, physical examination, and supporting examinations such as laboratories, ultrasound, and others to ascertain the cause of the complaint. Handling will be done according to the cause of the underlying disease. The prescribed drug is a drug containing tranexamic acid which is commonly used to stop bleeding. These drugs must be taken as prescribed by the doctor so that the right dosage and according to indications so as to reduce and prevent side effects and complications from the drug It's better to keep eating nutritious foods, eating foods that contain lots of iron and folic acid, drinking lots of water, getting enough rest, avoiding stress, smoking, and alcohol.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
