Why When Menstruation Triggers Heartburn Relapse?
Hello, Wr, Wb.
Hello. Good afternoon, Mr. Tedsu. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Ulcer disease (dyspepsia) is a pain that feels hot in the upper abdomen. Symptoms experienced such as mild to severe pain, vomiting, difficulty breathing, decreased appetite.
Heartburn can be related to hormonal patterns of women. Based on research found that an increase in female hormones during menstruation plays a role in increasing the pressure in the connecting valve of the stomach with the esophagus causing stomach acid to easily return to the esophagus and cause pain in the upper abdomen that feels burning. In addition, several other studies also revealed that hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle also play a role in the production of gastric fluid called gastrin so that stomach fluid becomes more acidic. This is what is likely to be a cause of recurrence more often, especially during menstrual periods.
To reduce the symptoms that arise and increase comfort, several things can be done like
- Eat with a regular pattern can even be made more often with small portions (a little bit but often)
- Avoid eating that is too spicy, sour, and fatty
- Avoid drinking acidic including coffee and tea
- Pause between eating and lying extended (preferably the last dinner has a gap of 2-3 hours before bedtime)
- Avoid pain medication
If the complaint gets worse it should be further examined by a specialist in internal medicine. And if you get vomiting black / red, CHAPTER black, pale, weak then it should immediately be taken to the nearest emergency room.
Thus the information we can convey. May be useful. Thank you
