Hi, Thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
If in the future you experience a long menstruation (more than a week) with profuse bleeding, you should check with an obstetrician and gynecologist to find the cause. Normal menstruation ranges from 2-7 days. Longer periods and more blood is known as menorrhagia. This condition can be caused by endometriosis, myoma, pelvic inflammation, polycystic ovary syndrome, adenomyosis, thyroid hormone disorders, and so on. The causes mentioned above require further treatment by a doctor.
Vaginal discharge is normally experienced by women due to the production of vaginal mucus which functions to maintain vaginal hygiene. Normal vaginal discharge is clear or white, odorless, and does not cause itching or burning in the pubic area. The amount of vaginal discharge will increase when you exercise, increased sexual desire, ovulation, side effects of birth control pills, and stress. If the characteristics of your vaginal discharge are still considered normal, there is nothing you need to worry about. Abnormal vaginal discharge will experience discoloration, smell, clot, mix with blood, cause itching or burning in the pubic area, accompanied by lower abdominal or pelvic pain, accompanied by pain during intercourse, or accompanied by bleeding outside of menstruation. Some of the causes of abnormal vaginal discharge include sexually transmitted infections, vaginal yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, pelvic inflammation, cervical cancer, and others. If you experience vaginal discharge that is not normal, please see a doctor immediately. After knowing your complaint completely, the doctor will perform a cervical examination, pelvic examination, and examination of vaginal discharge to determine the cause. Further treatment will be given by the doctor depending on the underlying health condition.
Also do the following recommendations:
avoid changing partners, use condoms when having intercourse to reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections, avoid wearing tight pants, wear underwear with a material that absorbs sweat if you have a lot of vaginal discharge, change your underwear immediately avoid using feminine cleansing soap Hope this information is useful .
