Right Side Abdominal Pain After Menstruation?
I want to ask.. I’m a 29 year old woman. should I do? What are the obstacles that make my stomach hurt? Thanks before..
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Abdominal pain around the time of menstruation can be normal, but it can also be dangerous. If there is no significant abnormality such as myoma or ovarian cyst on ultrasound examination, then your pain may be a normal thing, which is caused by uterine muscle contractions that aim to shed the uterine wall so that it comes out as menstrual blood. In the process, this muscle contraction can take place so intensely that it compresses the blood vessels that should supply the uterine cells with oxygen. As a result, the uterine cells will experience a lack of oxygen and pain arises because of the production of chemical mediators, such as prostaglandins, in excess.
In addition, it is also possible that pain in the lower right abdomen around the time of your period is triggered by other causes, for example:
Endometriosis (abnormal growth of uterine lining tissue outside the uterus, for example in the cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes, ovaries, or even the pelvic cavity) Pelvic inflammation (inflammation of the uterus, fallopian tubes, to the ovaries) Disorders of other organs (other than reproductive organs, for example infection) kidney, kidney stones, muscle pain, constipation, hernia, dyspepsia, etc.) Need to be clarified, how bad is the abdominal pain? Do you have other complaints, such as fever, vomiting, urinary disturbances, menstrual disorders, or fertility problems? When was the last time you had an ultrasound?
If the pain that appears is very severe, you should seek a second opinion by checking yourself back with a gynecologist, yes.. The doctor may do a repeat ultrasound examination or other supporting tests to detect possible dangerous diseases. Alternatively, you will be referred to the right specialist for further treatment.
Meanwhile, you can minimize pain recurrence by exercising, limiting activities that are too strenuous, drinking plenty of warm water, and eating regularly. When the pain comes, lie down on a comfortable mat while elevating your legs and compressing the aching stomach using warm water. Also calm your mind and stay away from excessive psychological pressure.
Hope it helps ya..
