Prolonged Spots Outside The Menstrual Cycle Accompanied By Lower Abdominal Pain?
Hello, I’m a 22-year-old woman, I want to consult if you please ask, I have regular menstruation at the end of every month and usually ends at the beginning of the month (range 5-7 days) but last February I experienced a blood spot accompanied by pain like a prolonged menstrual process until the next menstrual period, but after that my menstrual period was normal again and went on as usual, but last month the case was repeated with pain, what about the doctor’s diagnosis? Do I have to go to the hospital to be examined? Thank you, good night

Prolonged menstrual bleeding accompanied by severe menstrual pain actually does not always refer to a serious illness. It could be, this complaint purely indicates an unbalanced hormonal condition, for example due to the effects of fatigue, stress, eating disorders, exercise too heavy, drastic weight changes, side effects of drugs or contraception, as well as unhealthy lifestyles. If your menstrual bleeding does not exceed 2 weeks, and menstrual pain can still be overcome by warm compresses or taking regular painkillers, often there is no special treatment that needs to be done in this regard. You can improve your lifestyle first so that it is healthier, including more regular attention to bedtime, eating a variety of nutritionally balanced foods, maintaining ideal body weight, exercising more diligently every day, also managing stress wisely. In this way, it is hoped that hormonal conditions will return to balance, and menstruation will return to normal as usual.
You need to be vigilant if your complaints repeat until more than 3 times the menstrual cycle, if there are very heavy and prolonged menstrual bleeding (more than 2 weeks), or menstrual pain that appears unbearable and does not improve with the consumption of ordinary painkillers. It could be, this condition indicates a disease, for example endometriosis, myoma, uterine polyps, pelvic inflammation, adenomyosis, ovarian cysts, bleeding disorders, and so on. Check with yourself directly to a doctor or obstetrician so that it can be further evaluated, for example by ultrasound or hormonal examination. Thus, if indeed your condition occurs related to an illness, then the doctor can give him the right treatment.
Hope this helps ...
