Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
The thickness of the uterine wall / endometrium can vary according to hormonal fluctuations that cause menstrual cycles in women. In general, menstrual cycles occur within 28 days, but have a normal range of 21-35 days. Menstruation is characterized by blood coming out of the vagina as a result of a thickened endometrial wall. Menstrual duration can range from 2-7 days, accompanied by pain in the abdominal area such as stomach cramps.
The menstrual cycle phase consists of several phases, including:
Menstrual phase. The decay of the uterine lining is marked by bleeding from the vagina. Accompanied by pain in the abdomen such as cramps due to contraction of the muscles of the uterus. The decay of the uterine lining is caused by a decrease in the hormone estrogen and the hormone progesterone. Generally the uterine wall will thin out from day to day during the menstrual phase because the uterine wall continues to decay. Pre-ovulation and Ovulation. In this phase estrogen levels will increase slowly and trigger the growth of follicles and eggs, until the ovulation process. In general, ovulation occurs on the 14th day, but in reality many factors can affect a person's ovulation time such as weight, stress, level of exercise and activity. Pre Menstruation. In this phase progesterone levels will increase, the occurrence of uterine wall thickening is done to prepare the implantation site for fertilization during ovulation. Progesterone in this phase is produced by the corpus luteum. If fertilization and implantation do not occur in this phase, you will experience pre-menstrual symptoms and continue with menstruation. If there are disturbances in the menstrual cycle such as menstrual cycles that are too short (<21 days), menstrual cycles that are too long (> 35 days), excessive menstrual duration (> 7 days), pain in excessive menstruation, excessive bleeding when Menstruation, bleeding outside the menstrual cycle or between 2 menstrual cycles, it is recommended to control the obstetrician regarding the examination and management according to your condition. Urine tests, blood tests, and imaging tests like ultrasound (Ultrasonography) can be done if there are indications to be carried out. For more information on menstruation, you can access this link.
