Stomach Ache During The First Day Of Menstruation And Difficulty Walking?
Mmm … like this, I often get stomachaches when I start my period … a week after my period, my stomach hurts again, until I have difficulty walking and it has been going on for a long time, why?
Hello, Ira Safitri, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain during menstruation is a common thing, it is caused because during menstruation the muscles of the uterus contract so that pressing the blood vessels of the uterus that causes reduced supply of blood and oxygen to the uterus. Reduced supply of blood and oxygen to the uterus triggers the release of chemicals that cause pain.
There are several conditions that can cause menstrual pain to become very severe, continue until after menstruation stops, or menstrual pain that is accompanied by other symptoms such as: irregular menstruation, bleeding from the vagina outside the menstrual cycle, vaginal fluid that is thick and has a sharp odor, or pain during sex. The causes are for example:
Endometriosis Myoma / fibroids Pelvic inflammatory disease Cervical / cervical constriction Effects of IUD / spiral contraception In addition, other causes of lower abdominal pain can be caused by appendicitis, constipation (constipation), UTIs, etc.
To determine the cause, need a direct examination by a doctor. The doctor will conduct a question and answer about everything related to symptoms that occur, do a physical examination, and if necessary, a supporting examination such as ultrasound, blood tests, and urine analysis. Treatment will depend on the cause and severity of the disorder.
To relieve pain, you can take over the counter painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. But painkillers can not eliminate the cause, so long as the cause is still present, the pain can disappear and reappear. In addition, warm compresses on the painful area can also relieve pain.
Immediately to the doctor if the pain is very severe, does not subside with ibuprofen or paracetamol, continuous pain, accompanied by other symptoms such as: fever, vomiting, pain during urination, pain during sexual intercourse, bleeding from the birth canal outside the menstrual cycle, bleeding very a lot, or vaginal discharge.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
