The Time Limit For Taking Hormone Drugs When Menstruation Is Irregular?
Good afternoon .. r nSy irma. 45 years old. I had my period on August 14th and it stopped on August 24th and August 30th, my period came again. on the 1st I checked with a gynecologist from the ultrasound results of the uterine wall which was slightly thickened, there were no cysts and I was given drugs: Plasminex 500mg, Norelut Norethisterone 5mg and lycoxy. r nYes, 1. Should I finish these 3 drugs? and 2. At my age now, have I entered pre-menopause. 3. What are the signs of a woman entering the pre-menoupos? and what foods or vitamins can delay the menopause period? thank you r n sorry I can’t ask the doctor I came, because the queue is long☺ r nBest regard …..
Plasminex contains tranexamic acid. This drug serves to stop bleeding. Norelut contains norethisterone. This drug is an artificial progesterone hormone to treat various conditions including menstrual cycle disorders. While lycoxy is a supplement containing lutein, lycopene, vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, beta carotene, and selenium yeast. This supplement can help endurance and as an antioxidant.
In general, drug consumption is spent or does not depend on the type of drug and the patient's condition, for example antibiotics, antivirals, and hormone drugs are spent, while those that reduce symptoms such as pain relief, fever-reducing can usually be stopped when the symptoms have improved. In your condition, if previously your gynecologist did not give specific instructions, I suggest taking the given medication until it runs out and then control it after the drug runs out or as recommended by your doctor.
But you should still ask your gynecologist again whether tranexamic acid and norethisterone need to be spent or not. If you are constrained by the number of patients, you can go to the pharmacy section where you redeem your prescription, there may be a record of your prescription that can be seen again by the pharmacist on duty or you can even ask the doctor who gave the prescription.
Related to menopause, menopause is a condition that stops ovulation and menstruation. Usually menopause occurs at the age of 50 years. Menopause that occurs before the age of 40 is known as premature menopause.
Before experiencing menopause, there is a transition phase to menopause which usually occurs several years before menopause. This transitional period is called perimenopause. During perimenopause, the hormone estrogen will fluctuate irregularly. The existence of this estrogen hormone instability can make the menstrual cycle irregular. In addition, women who are in perimenopause can also experience menopausal symptoms.
Some of the symptoms of menopause include:
Menstrual frequency and interval may become less frequent before finally stopping altogether
Hot flushes: sensation of heat, sweating, palpitations
Decreased sex drive
Metabolism slows down
More prone to urinary tract infections
Perimenopause and menopause are natural conditions that cannot be avoided by every woman. But if a woman feels uncomfortable with the symptoms of perimenopause, doctors can provide treatment to reduce the symptoms, for example with hormone therapy, vaginal estrogen, gabapentin, and antidepressants. The type of treatment will be adjusted to the patient's condition.
If you feel that you are experiencing the menopausal symptoms above and feel uncomfortable with these conditions, I suggest that you consult further with your obstetrician so that you can do an examination and be given further treatment.
Some tips that you can do if you experience menopause symptoms include:
Use clothes that are comfortable and absorb sweat to reduce hot flushes
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Reduce consumption of fatty and oily foods, caffeine
Manage stress well
Get enough rest
Get regular exercise
