Why Does Menstrual Blood Come Out So Much And For So Long?
good evening, i want to ask since February 6, 2019 until now my mother had menstruation where menstrual blood came out so much that my mom had to wear sanitary pads 3 per day, and many black red blood clots came out … some said my mom might have experienced menopause but my mom is only 40 years old. Did my mom go through menopause early? or is there another disease? maybe the doctor can tell me the cause and that advice … I really need the answer. thank you …
Hello Jessica, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Menstruation with excessive blood counts or prolonged menstruation (occurring for more than 7 days) is also called menorrhagia. Menorrhagia itself can be caused by many possibilities, including:
anovulation cycle (a condition where the ovaries do not release eggs during the fertile period), one of the causes is menopause side effects of hormonal contraception side effects of using contraceptives in the uterus / IUD hormonal imbalances for example in PCOS, obesity, thyroid hormone disorders, etc. Adenomyosis or growth endometrial tissue in the uterine wall muscles Myoma uteri Cancer in the reproductive tract Blood clotting disorders The use of drugs that cause blood clotting disorders such as aspirin, warfarin, heparin and many other possibilities See the possible causes of menorrhagia very much, you should take your mother to the doctor the womb as soon as possible so that further tests can be carried out. Excessive blood flow for a long time can cause your mother to experience a lack of blood (anemia) which if severe can endanger your own life. Therefore, the examination should not be delayed.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
