Uncovering the Causes of Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding
Many female friends have experienced vaginal bleeding within a few days of menstruation. Some people are very anxious and worried that they are seriously ill; Today we will talk about several conditions that cause abnormal vaginal bleeding.
For female friends with regular menstruation, it can be inferred that the 14 days before the next menstrual cramps are the ovulation day, and the 5 days before and 4 days after the ovulation day, together with the ovulation day, a total of 10 days are called the ovulation period. The amount of bleeding during ovulation is generally not much, or there is only a small amount of brown discharge, which lasts for 2 to 3 days, and does not exceed 7 days at most, and may be accompanied by mild lower abdominal pain and backache. Due to fluctuations in estrogen levels, the endometrium loses hormonal support and part of it falls off, causing regular vaginal bleeding, which can be observed if the symptoms are mild.
● Dysfunctional uterine bleeding
Under normal circumstances, the endometrium of women of childbearing age is affected by estrogen and progesterone, and it grows and sheds periodically. When the corpus luteum function is disordered, the endometrium cannot be repaired or shed in time, which will cause profuse vaginal bleeding. As much as possible, the amount of bleeding varies from time to time. In this case, you need to see a doctor. The doctor will take effective hemostasis measures, and then adjust to establish a normal menstrual cycle to prevent recurrence.
A few days after menstruation is clean, bleeding occurs again after sex, which is mostly related to vaginitis, cervicitis, cervical cancer and other diseases. This situation needs to be diagnosed as soon as possible so as not to delay treatment.
●Hemorrhage caused by organic lesions of the uterus
Common lesions include endometrial polyps, uterine submucous fibroids, adenomyosis and so on. Ultrasonography of the uterine adnexa usually reveals abnormal findings of the uterine cavity. Some lesions need to be further found by intrauterine ultrasonography or hysteroscopy, and the diagnosis can be confirmed by postoperative pathological examination. The treatment plan depends on the age of the patient, the severity of symptoms, the size, number, location of lesions, and whether there is a need for fertility.
●Take emergency contraceptive pills
Taking emergency contraception can also cause vaginal bleeding. Emergency contraceptives can only be used as a remedy and cannot replace normal contraceptive methods. Repeated use will lead to menstrual disorders.
Insertion of an IUD may also cause vaginal bleeding. If there is no obvious improvement after observation and general treatment, it may be considered to replace or remove the existing IUD.
In short, if abnormal vaginal bleeding occurs, please seek medical treatment as soon as possible.
