The Cause Of Menstruation Is Too Long?
. I am married and I want to ask about my period from the 6th of August until now I am still having my period. But during the 7th day during the day I did not menstruate and the 8th day I was bleeding again until menstruation now. That’s why? I need an explanation. Because I was confused because recently I had a period like that for 12 days that hasn’t stopped. thanks.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Normal menstruation can occur for 2 to 8 days. Throughout this menstrual cycle, the blood released can range from 30 to 40 cc. Menstrual blood is produced from the entire uterine lining (endometrium) which does not get adequate supply of oxygen-rich blood and nutrients due to hormonal influences triggered by the absence of fertilization of the egg by sperm cells.
Bleeding during menstruation can last longer and not smooth (where there are days that do not menstruate out at all) due to many factors, for example physical fatigue, severe mental stress, heavy exercise, the influence of drugs or contraception (for example, pain medications, anti-bleeding, pills KB), weight changes that are too drastic, or also due to an unhealthy lifestyle. Some diseases, such as endometriosis, myoma, pelvic inflammation, cervicitis, miscarriage, cervical cancer, ovarian cysts, and hyper or hypothyroidism can also trigger complaints like you experience at this time. But often, if a complaint occurs related to a serious illness, the complaint will repeat for several cycles, not only occasionally.
Therefore, if you only experience this type of complaint just this once, you should not worry too much before. Just be consistent in living a healthy lifestyle, such as by sleeping and waking up more regularly, not consuming alcohol or drugs carelessly, multiply eating fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants, maintaining ideal body weight, regularly exercising, also drinking enough. Avoid excessive anxiety or stress, also avoid taking careless supplements or menstrual cessation. If there is still bleeding out of the birth canal, it is also advisable not to have sexual relations involving vaginal penetration.
However, if with the steps above your complaint continues to repeat until more than 3 times the menstrual cycle in a row, or menstrual bleeding that appears very much, prolonged (more than 2 weeks), even causing you to experience anemia, you should check yourself immediately go to the doctor or obstetrician to be examined further (for example with a hormone test or ultrasound) and treated according to the cause yes ..
I hope this helps.
