The Cause Of Menstruation Is Only In The Form Of Spots And More Than A Week At The Age Of 17 Years?
Good afternoon. I am 17 years old and usually menstruate every month smoothly but this month the menstruation is only a little spots but has not stopped a week. I wonder why and what should I do? Thank you
Hello Razahsya, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Menstruation which is said to be normal or smooth is menstruation that occurs every 21-35 days which lasts for about 2-7 days and blood that comes out every day is approximately 40-80cc (equivalent to 3-6 tablespoons per day).
Complaints that you experience at this time can still be a normal thing if it still meets the criteria above even though the blood only looks like a spots, but if indeed you feel that it does not meet the above requirements or you find it difficult to determine, then it is advisable to check your complaints further to the doctor for further evaluation because the complaint can be a disorder that can be caused by:
Stress Female hormonal imbalance Deficiency / excess thyroid hormone Side effects of certain drugs, especially those containing hormones Reproductive tract infections After an examination is done, then you can determine what condition you are experiencing and what medical therapy / further action should be taken.
In the meantime, other than seeing a doctor, you are not advised to take any of the medicines that are recommended because the use of drugs that are not right can only aggravate complaints. In the meantime, you can try doing the following things to help, such as:
Maintaining a nutritious and balanced nutritional intake every day Maintaining a minimum of 2 liters of fluid intake per day Increasing intake of vegetables and fruits Exercising regularly and regularly at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes at a time Avoiding stress especially stressful enough heavy Resting for at least 6-8 hours per day I hope this helps.
