Prolonged Menstruation For 3 Weeks In Adolescents Aged 17 Years?
good night doctor, I am a diva of a 17 year old teenager next month, will be asking questions about the disease that I am suffering from lately. I have experienced prolonged menstrual disorders at the beginning of menstruation at the age of 12 years. I went to the doctor at that time and the doctor said it was nothing, I was allergic to sweetened condensed milk. so I avoided sweetened condensed milk at that time. I do experience irregular menstrual cycles, sometimes I don’t get periods in 1 month, sometimes I also get menstrual periods 2 times a month. but at the time of this month I had a prolonged menstruation for more than 3 weeks I bled like a normal menstrual period for 3-4 days. but this time my menstruation has stopped for 2 days then came again until now. I have consulted with a gynecologist but the result is the same as he gave the drug and said that I have hormonal disturbances, which is normal for teenagers who experience stress and fatigue. indeed lately I am tired and stressed by school factors. so is this dangerous or not? and is there a way to stop the bleeding? because I am very afraid of doctors. I hope the doctor can read and provide me with solutions and solutions that can make my bleeding stop and my menstruation is normal. Thank you in advance. Good night
Menstruation that lasts more than 7 days or menstruation with excessive volume every day can be something that is not normal or is called menorrhagia. This condition can be triggered by many possible causes, one of which is due to hormonal changes, disorders of the female organs such as the ovaries, use of contraceptives, thyroid disorders, sexually transmitted infections, benign tumors in the uterus or myoma or other causes.
In adolescents, especially at puberty, they often experience hormonal problems. This condition is also triggered by daily activities. Stress, tiring physical activity, significant weight changes can be the trigger. For this reason, if menstrual complaints last a long time, it is necessary to be careful so as not to cause anemia. If there are complaints of dizziness, fatigue, fainting, looking pale and other symptoms, it is necessary to return to the examination. Tell the parents so that one of them can ask for a second opinion from a different obstetrician so that they can find out what condition is the trigger. Later the doctor will carry out examinations both medical interviews, physical examinations and necessary supporting examinations such as blood labs, ultrasound or other necessary examinations.
