Hello, good night May ...
Based on what you said, your menstrual cycle is currently 15 days (counting from 18 April to 2 May). Menstrual cycle starts from the first day of menstrual bleeding and ends on the first day of menstrual bleeding in the next menstrual period. The average woman's menstrual cycle is 28 days. While the menstrual cycle is said to be normal if the length is 21 to 35 days.
Some conditions can cause menstruation to arrive early, including:
still in puberty, where hormone regulation is still not regular
fatigue due to excessive physical activity
drastic weight loss
currently using contraception, either birth control pills, emergency birth control pills, spiral birth control (IUD0, or family planning injection).
Certain sexually transmitted infections
experiencing disorders of the reproductive organs, such as:
PCOS / Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, a condition where there are many small cysts in the ovaries
endometriosis, which is a condition in which the tissue lining the uterine wall grows outside the uterine organ itself
pelvic inflammatory disease
thyroid hormone disorders
In addition to the things above, what you are experiencing at this time may also not be menstrual blood, but other possibilities such as blood implantation (ie blood that comes out of the birth canal due to the attachment of the fertilization results in the uterine wall), or early signs of miscarriage . These two conditions are certainly considered if you are already married / sexually active.
We cannot confirm whether your condition is natural (for example due to stress, fatigue, etc.) or because of an underlying disease, because we do not examine you directly. However, menstruation that comes early generally does not indicate a serious and dangerous condition. However, if you feel severe pain, we recommend that you immediately see a gynecologist. The doctor will do a physical examination and if necessary the doctor may suggest additional tests such as blood tests, urine tests, ultrasound, etc. If you do not experience severe symptoms, but in the next two to three months you still experience similar complaints, we also still recommend that you see a gynecologist to determine whether the condition you are experiencing is normal or due to an underlying disease.
Meanwhile, what you can do at home regarding your current complaints include:
limit strenuous physical activity
eat nutritious food with ideal portions
do your menstrual cycle record
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
