Menstrual blood volume
The amount of women's menstrual flow varies from person to person, and varies greatly from person to person, usually 20-10 ml, with an average of about 50. It is normal to change sanitary napkins or menstrual paper 3-5 times a day. If the amount of menstrual blood is too much, changing a sanitary napkin or having a menstrual paper will quickly get wet, and even menstrual blood will flow down the thigh, which is not normal. Excessive menstrual blood may be functional uterine bleeding caused by factors such as excessive mental stress, environmental changes, malnutrition, and metabolic disorders. Excessive menstrual blood can cause anemia for a long time. You should seek medical treatment as soon as possible to find out the cause and treat it.
Of course, due to abnormal uterus and ovaries or systemic diseases, the amount of menstrual flow may be low, and this condition is not normal, and you should seek medical treatment in time. It is more common for adolescent girls to increase their menstrual flow. The main reason is that during puberty, ovarian function is still fully mature, and part of menstruation at this time is anovulatory. Without ovulation, there is no corpus luteum, and without corpus luteum, progesterone is lacking. Therefore, the endometrium can only be in the proliferative phase and cannot reach the perfect secretory phase, so that the endometrium is not completely shedding and affects the contraction of the uterus, causing excessive menstrual blood. If this condition is not noticed, over time, symptoms of anemia such as pale, fatigue, dizziness, etc., should be treated with a doctor.
2. Menstrual blood color
Normal blood is dark red, and the blood is mixed with exfoliated endometrial sepals, cervical mucus, and vaginal epithelial cells. The blood does not coagulate, so there is no clot. If the menstrual blood is as thin as water, only a little pink, or dark purple, it is abnormal. If the menstrual blood is completely clotted and is not normal, there may be other bleeding sites, you should seek medical treatment early to ensure good health.
3. Menstrual cycle
The average women's menstrual cycle is 28-30 days, but some men come once every 30 days, some even menstruation once every 40. As long as there is regularity, that is, the second menstrual cycle is substantially the same, it is normal. In addition, menstruation is susceptible to many factors, so it is normal to 3-5 days earlier or later.
If the menstrual cycle is 20 days this time, the next time is 40 days, there are many days apart, and this situation often occurs, and some even have 1-2 days after menstruation, and 1-2 days after more than 10 days, lost Periodic, this is abnormal, called irregular menstruation. It should be noted that during the first menstrual period of adolescent girls, because the ovaries have just developed and their functions are not yet perfect, there will be dysfunction and irregularities. This is not a pathological phenomenon. Do n’t worry about it. Fate turns to normal.
4. Menstrual period (also called menstrual period)
Women's menstrual period is about 3-5 days, and it is not uncommon for 2-8 days. The general rule of menstruation is not much menstrual blood on the first day, increased on the second or third day, and then gradually reduced until the menstrual blood is clean. This is because the endometrium shedding has just begun on the first day, the endometrium shedding has increased on the second and third days, the amount of bleeding has increased, the uterus has been stimulated, it has contracted, and a large amount of menstrual blood has been expelled. Some people have cleaned their menstrual blood, and a little more after a day or two. If they want to call "menstrual blood turning back", this is not a disease, but a normal phenomenon. However, some women's menstrual periods last for 10 or even 20 days, and their menstrual periods are inexhaustible; some menstrual periods are extremely short, and they just pass by in a flash. Both phenomena are abnormal.
