The Cause Of Lower Abdominal Pain Accompanied By Prolonged Menstruation And Menstrual Blood Is Black?
I have stopped using injectable birth control for 3 months for 3 months, because for 2 years I have always felt pain in my lower abdomen and no menstruation at all. After stopping for 2 months, my stomach was very painful, such as childbirth contractions, then for a period of 1 month I menstruated up to 3 times, with the color of blood that was jet black and clotted. Why is that? Is it really the effect of the KB injection? Is it necessary to do an examination at the hospital?
Thank you for the question.
Frequently, 3-month injecting family planning users will experience some side effects, including non-current menstruation and abdominal pain as you experience it. Provided that the use of injectable birth control has been consulted first to the doctor, and as long as you regularly inject the KB according to the doctor's recommended schedule, often this condition is not dangerous. With plenty of rest, exercising regularly, eating lots of fruits and vegetables, drinking more water, don't stress, warm compresses to cramp your stomach, and don't also take any medication, generally complaints will improve over time without the need for special treatment.
The condition for you who experience heavy, frequent menstrual bleeding and abdominal pain can be reasonable due to the residual effects of the contraceptive injections you used before. But it can also, this condition indicates an illness, for example ovarian cysts, edometriosis, pelvic inflammation, myoma, ectopic pregnancy, grape pregnancy, miscarriage, and so on. Abdominal pain may also occur due to disorders of the urinary tract, gastrointestinal tract, muscles and joints, and even nerves around the stomach.
If it is very annoying, you should indeed check your condition directly to the doctor or obstetrician. With an ultrasound examination, blood test, or other supporting tests, often the doctor can give you the best treatment according to the cause.
Hope this helps ...
