The Cause Of Not Having Menstruation For 8 Months In Adolescents 16 Years?
Hy. I want to ask. I am 16 years old and I have not had my period for 8 months. My stomach felt churned and hard as if there were stones in it and my placenta was sore. I guess why? Please help
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify, have you had sexual relations before?
Not menstruating for months can occur due to disturbances in the reproductive organs, or in other organ systems that affect the balance of hormones that regulate menstruation. If the absence of menstruation occurs accompanied by discomfort around the stomach (especially the area around the navel), then the following might trigger your complaint:
Disorders of the reproductive organs, for example: Ovarian cysts (fluid-filled sac in the ovaries) Inflammation of the pelvis (inflammation of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries) Cancer of the uterus, cervical cancer Impaired pregnancy (if you have had sexual relations), eg ectopic pregnancy in other organ systems, which affect the balance of menstrual-regulating hormones, for example: Dyspepsia (increased stomach acid) Appendicitis (appendicitis) Intra-abdominal tumors Colitis Irritable bowel syndrome Stones or urinary tract infections Thyroid or pituitary gland disorders, etc. Need to be clarified in advance, how long have you felt the complaint in your stomach? Do you also experience problems with bowel movements, urination, vomiting, weight loss, fever, or other complaints? So, was your menstrual cycle always regular?
Due to the limited information you provide regarding the details of your complaint, it is very difficult for us to identify exactly what triggered the complaint you experienced without conducting a direct examination. It takes a thorough clinical examination and supporting examinations, such as blood tests, X-rays, ultrasound, and so on to narrow down the possible diagnosis of your complaint. Therefore, you should check yourself directly to the nearest doctor or obstetrician.
In the meantime, so that the discomfort in your stomach improves and your menstruation runs more regularly, you should do the following:
Compress the uncomfortable stomach with warm water. Wear comfortable clothes and pants to use. Eat healthy and nutritious foods, limit your consumption of spicy foods and other foods that have the potential to cause irritation to your digestive tract Drink lots of warm water Do not consume alcohol Increase exercise Manage emotions and your stress well. Limit activities that require you to contract your abdominal muscles excessively, for example pushing or lifting heavy objects, bending for too long, and so on.
