The Cause Of Menstruation Is More Advanced Than Date?
Hello Imma Supriadi,
Menstruation is the process of endometrial decay that comes out with the blood through the vagina which is a monthly cycle. Menstruation is a complex process involving the reproductive organs, reproductive hormones, other hormones in the body and brain. Some of the hormones involved are GnRH (gonadotropinrelasinghormone), FSH (foliclestimulatinghormone), LH (luteinizinghormone), estrogen, and progesterone.
Normally the duration of menstruation is for 3-7 days. The menstrual cycle can sometimes come sooner or later, with differences ranging from 21 to 35 days. This cycle is calculated from the first date of menstruation to the first menstruation date next, if it is still in the range of 21-35 days means your menstruation is still normal.
Some causes of irregular menstrual cycles are as follows:
Stress can increase cortisol levels in the body, which indirectly affects the production of reproductive hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle and lead to disruption of your menstrual cycle.
Consumption of contraceptive pills or the use of hormonal contraceptives. These contraceptives interfere with the stability of reproductive hormones in the body, so they can interfere with the menstrual cycle.
Drastic changes in body weight can interfere with the work of reproductive hormones in the body. Drastic weight loss will make it difficult for the body to produce enough estrogen that is useful in the process of ovulation so that it affects the menstrual cycle. Weight gain causes an increase in estrogen levels which will also affect the menstrual cycle.
PCO (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is a reproductive disorder caused by hormonal imbalances in the body. Women with PCOS usually have unbalanced levels of sex hormones (estrogen and progesterone), excess androgen or male sex hormones, and have small cysts in their ovaries.
The duration and volume of bleeding in the menstrual cycle experienced by each woman are generally different. Every woman is advised to pay attention or record her menstrual cycle so that she can immediately realize if certain irregularities arise. Unusual menstrual cycles or excessive blood volume can be caused by impaired hormonal balance in the body or disorders of the reproductive organs. Further tests include physical examination and supporting examinations such as ultrasound and blood hormone levels tests can be done with a specialist Obsgyn doctor to determine the cause of menstrual cycle disorders that you experience.
