Hello dear Eva,
Menstruation is a natural cycle for every woman where there is a process of shedding of the innermost lining of the uterine wall (endometrium) which then comes out as menstrual blood. This process lasts for 3-7 days and repeats in a range of 21-35 days. This cycle varies so that it is not the same from one woman to another.
Regarding your question above, vitamin C is believed to be able to strengthen the lining of blood vessels so that the blood that comes out during menstruation is not excessive, as well as its duration is shortened. However, scientific evidence of this opinion still has to be continued.
Basically, vitamin C can be obtained from daily food, especially from vegetables and fruits. Vitamin C supplementation is indicated to treat or prevent vitamin C deficiency. The daily dose of vitamin C is 25-75 mg per day, but for treatment it is about 25-300 mg per day. Until now, the effects of vitamin C consumption on pregnant and lactating women are still not categorized, so it would be better if you consult your doctor first. The doctor will ask several questions, including regarding your child's current age. Next, the doctor will confirm the signs of vitamin C deficiency through a physical examination, so that later they can prescribe the right dose of vitamin C.
