Second Menstruation After Curette?
hello doctor, I am February 24 years old.
Curettage is a procedure to clean the uterus or it can also be done for diagnostic purposes taking a sample of uterine tissue. After curettage there can be some side effects, one of which is disruption in the menstrual cycle.
Women who undergo curettage sometimes experience irregular menstrual cycles, lengthen menstrual periods, greater amounts of bleeding, or other complaints during menstruation. Generally, this condition will improve after several menstrual cycles.
Apart from the side effects after curettage, prolonged menstruation and a lot of blood can be caused by several factors such as miscarriage in unwanted pregnancy, remaining tissue in the uterus, pelvic inflammation, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, adenomyosis, thyroid disorders, polyps, blood clotting disorders, drug side effects, and cancer.
If you experience more bleeding during menstruation, change pads every 1-2 hours or the blood count is more than 80 cc and the menstrual period is more than 2 weeks, I suggest that you return to your obstetrician so that you can do an evaluation and re-examination to make sure is there any other cause of your prolonged menstruation. The doctor will provide appropriate treatment according to the results of the examination. Some of the treatments that doctors may give, for example, drugs to stop bleeding, hormonal therapy, to take action if necessary.
Some tips you can do:
Record the amount of bleeding. Get enough rest. Eat healthy and nutritious foods. Drink lots of water. Manage stress well. The following articles relate to the topic of your question:
