Spotting From The Birth Canal Outside The Menstrual Cycle?
Afternoon, I have a long menstrual cycle which is the average of 36 days. Yesterday the 32nd day (14DPO) I had a brownish spot. Then I took a shower, after taking a shower my husband invited me to have a relationship. After intercourse I checked there was a little pink blood. I thought menstruation, I used pantyliner from yesterday at 18:30 but until this afternoon at 13.30 there was no more blood coming out. Are conditions like this still normal or need more treatment? I also have no sign of menstruation (stomach cramps and changes in the position of the cervix) thanks for the doctor’s answer.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Spotting of the birth canal outside the menstrual cycle (including spots after intercourse) can indicate a variety of conditions, for example:
Impaired hormonal balance, for example due to fatigue, unhealthy lifestyles, obesity, extreme diets, strenuous exercise, stress
Injury to the reproductive organs, such as injuries, sexual relations or excessive masturbation
Endometriosis (growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterus)
Myoma (benign tumor originating from the uterine muscle)
Cervicitis (inflammation of the cervix)
Others, such as cervical cancer, uterine cancer, pelvic inflammation, bleeding disorders, vitamin K deficiency, thyroid gland disorders, perimenopause, side effects of drugs, side effects of certain contraceptive use, and so on
In fact, this condition is not always dangerous. If you have experienced this condition only once, try to remedy it with the following steps:
When it still comes out of the spots from the birth canal, do not have excessive sexual intercourse involving vaginal penetration
Always keep your sex organs clean
Live a healthy lifestyle, including by regularly exercising, getting enough sleep, multiply eating foods rich in antioxidants (vegetables, fruits, nuts), don't stress
Avoid indiscriminate taking drugs or supplements, including fertility drugs, menstrual smoothing, or other drugs
If complaints continue to repeat up to 3 times or more menstrual cycles, do not hesitate to check your condition directly to the doctor or obstetrician, yes. Supporting examinations, such as ultrasound, hormonal examinations, etc. can also be done if the doctor suspects a more serious condition.
I hope this helps.
