Prolonged Menstruation Accompanied By Menstrual Pain During Intercourse?
Hi, I want to ask that I was menstruating since 2nd junior high school before I gave birth to my first child. I had a miscarriage but it didn’t work. After I gave birth to my first child, I experienced hormonal disturbances in my menstruation, so it didn’t mean it would stop for 5 days, 7 days of menstruation, sometimes up to 10 days, and now it’s accompanied by pain. every time I have sex I always menstruate but every time I check it says it’s okay, what’s the explanation
Hi Fara, Thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Menstruation is considered normal if it ranges from 2-7 days while the normal menstrual cycle ranges from 21-35 days. The menstrual cycle is counted from the first day of menstruation to the first day of the next menstruation. Menstrual disorders can happen to anyone and can be caused by your daily activities. Some of the following can cause menstrual disorders: excessive physical activity, high stress levels, drastic weight changes, or being overweight. Menstruation that lasts more than 7 days includes a menstrual disorder known as menorrhagia. Menorrhagia is a condition in which menstrual bleeding occurs very much or lasts longer. In addition, sufferers can also experience complaints of pain during menstruation or pain when having sex.
The following are some of the causes of menorrhagia:
cervical polyps or uterine polyps
Pain during intercourse can also be caused by a lack of lubrication during intercourse. Therefore, please discuss with your husband to prolong foreplay, consider the use of vaginal lubricants. If the pain during intercourse still occurs even though lubrication is sufficient, then further examination is needed to determine the cause of your complaint. Please consult an obstetrician and gynecologist for further examination. Your doctor will need to ask about your menstrual history, your medical history, and perform tests on you including a cervical exam, pelvic exam, ultrasound, or blood work. Further treatment depends on the underlying health condition of your complaint.
Hope this information is useful.
