A woman's monthly menstrual cycle may change significantly from one period to the next as she ages. A woman's menstrual cycle typically lasts 28 days but can last anywhere from 21 to 35 days. The time frame is flexible and subject to change. A woman's menstrual cycle might last anywhere from three days to seven days.
The intensity and duration of the flow, as well as the frequency and duration with which it returns, are all variables. The flow could last for a week or less than a week. Your period may be late or you may not get it at all if you are under extreme stress or if your regular routine has been entirely disrupted. You should still take precautions and get in touch with your doctor right away if you notice any changes to your health, but knowing what is normal for you and what isn't will help.
According to "Healthline," if a woman experiences any of these symptoms before, during, or after her period, she should see her family doctor.
1, Experiencing major blood loss is the primary concern.
Extreme menstrual flow, pain in the lower back or pelvis, and other symptoms may be the result of a disorder such as fibroids or endometriosis, which can develop at any time during the menstrual cycle. On the other hand, fibroid tumors develop in the uterine muscle and are completely harmless. Regular, heavy menstruation is a red flag that should prompt you to get checked for womb cancer. But, endometriosis doesn't just impact the uterus.
2. Constant suffering.
Some women also experience mild discomfort, headaches, and cramping in addition to the aforementioned symptoms during their periods. Dysmenorrhea, or severe menstruation pain, may be a sign of endometriosis or another potentially fatal illness, such as an infection. Fever with pelvic pain may indicate a significant bladder or uterine infection, regardless of when the pain occurs in the menstrual cycle.
3, there are no breaks in the schedule.
Making an appointment with your primary care physician is a good idea if it has been more than three months since your last period. The start of menopause, emotional or physical stress, pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, an underactive thyroid, and other conditions can all play a role in bringing on this illness. You have a legal obligation to tell your doctor about this.
4. a thick, sticky, and abnormally sized discharge.
Periodic blood clots are sometimes a symptom of anemia, a disorder defined by a lack of healthy red blood cells. A lack of iron or vitamin B12 is the usual cause of anemia, but pregnancy can also play a role.
Other conditions include uterine fibroids and pelvic inflammatory illness. Blood clots occur monthly and are caused by very small, infrequent, noncancerous growths in the uterus.
