Prolonged Menstruation Accompanied By Black Lumps At The Age Of 47 Years?
Hello doctor, I’m a housewife, I’m 47 years old. I want to ask, within a month I have menstruated 3x, now only 2 more weeks I have menstruated again u0026amp; Is the blood mixed with black lumps, normal or not? Thank you.
Hello Umi Yati, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Women have a hormonal system that is more complex than men. An imbalance in a hormone can cause symptoms. What happens to you right now is menstrual disorders, shortening of your menstrual cycle. Normal menstrual cycles for adult women range from 21-35 days. All you have to make sure here is that the blood coming out is menstrual blood and not because of other bleeding.
There are several possible diseases that can trigger menstruation more than once a month, some of which might be able to happen to you, namely:
Premenopause. Excessive weight loss. Uterine fibroids / myomas. Polycystic ovary syndrome. The use of hormonal contraceptives. Thyroid disorders. Endometriosis. From some of the picture above, the doctor will do a direct examination to you such as asking for anamnesa based on your complaint, doing a physical examination, and ultrasound examination (Ultrasonography) to distinguish some of the above diseases.
But perimenopause / premenopause itself is not a disease, and this is a normal thing that every woman will experience. This process can last for 4-10 years before menopause occurs. The normal age for perimenopause to start is between 30- 40 years. When going through this phase menstruation can be faster / longer than before.
To find out your problem with certainty, I advise you to consult an obstetrician. At the moment I'm only giving a few pictures, not a definitive diagnosis.
Right now what you can do is:
Evaluate your complaints, whether they cause disturbing symptoms such as excessive stomach pain, body weakness, excessive bleeding, pain during sexual intercourse, etc. Get enough rest and take care of your diet. Exercise routine. Keep your feminine area clean, always change pads regularly. Immediately consult a doctor directly, if there are complaints that interfere with complaints. That's all the answers I can give, more and less I apologize.
Thank you and good luck always :)
