Hello. Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Menstruation is a cycle that occurs associated with hormonal changes in a woman's body. The most common menstrual cycle for women is around 28-35 days, which is calculated from the first day of menstruation in that month, in general, next month will menstruate around the same date or sometimes go forward or back around 7 days. However, in conditions that affect a woman's hormonal balance, menstrual cycles can occur which lengthen or shorten so that menstruation becomes backward or forward.
Some things that cause irregular menstrual cycles are
• A significant increase or decrease in body weight will cause changes in female hormones. This is related to female hormones being a derivative of the chemical composition of fat
• Stress will affect the work of the brain to produce hormones so that there will be changes in hormonal balance
• Smoking has substances that will affect the female hormone cycle.
• Use of contraceptives will affect a woman's hormonal balance.
If menstruation is irregular in 3 months or more accompanied by other complaints such as pain during heavy menstruation / heavy menstruation / menstrual duration that is too long or too short it is possible to have abnormalities in the female organs or hormonal balance or illness outside the female organs, some of which may be is
• Poliksitik ovary syndrome where what happens is that the function of the ovaries is disrupted so that hormones are disrupted, usually accompanied by excess acne, weight gain is greatly increased, loss of head hair but facial hair on the chest and abdomen is excessive
• Endometriosis (uterine tissue outside the organ) symptoms will usually appear irregular menstruation which will be accompanied by extreme pain when menstruation occurs.
• Chronic diseases such as diabetes will be related to hormonal stability.
• Thyroid disease will disrupt the body's metabolism so that one of the disturbed metabolisms is the menstrual cycle.
Things that can be considered and done at home are to maintain a healthy lifestyle with adequate nutrition, avoid foods that are too high in cholesterol, avoid cigarettes / alkhol, exercise regularly, and avoid stress. If menstrual complaints are still continuing for the next 3 months accompanied by other symptoms that interfere with you should consult an obstetrician.
If there are any of the following symptoms
• Menstrual bleeding is so large that it becomes limp or difficult to communicate
• Abdominal pain that is very severe and unbearable
Then you should immediately go to the hospital emergency room so that it can be examined quickly for immediate treatment.
Thus the information that I can convey. Thank you
