Being a woman is not easy at all, and it's not just that a modern lady should be active, always cheerful, smart and sexy. It's not even about childbirth and all sorts of bikes about this time. The fact is that a woman passes a test every month for the right to be considered as such. This test - menstruation, monthly discharge, sometimes painful and very unpleasant. To this the ladies are used, but here the intermenstrual bleeding always causes anxiety and even panic. What is the reason? Should I worry? Is such a symptom dangerous? Do I need to run to the doctor? And, of course, how to treat such a problem?
What it is?
Happy men continue to be in good ignorance about women's health. They sincerely believe that gaskets and tampons are mostly useless, produced solely for the sake of women's whims. And they consider PMS to be our whims. Sometimes we ourselves become uncomfortable for the fact that during this period we so want warmth, care and attention. A strong woman does not show her weaknesses. But intermenstrual bleeding is a troubling symptom. He warns not only about any malfunctions in the health of the female body. But it can be a bell, talking about various diseases. Have noticed that there were unusual bleeding between menstrual? Do not panic - this is a fairly common phenomenon, which can be a variant of the norm. Perhaps you fell down from a great height the day before? Or did you have too much intimate contact? Yes, sometimes sex can give such consequences, so to notify a partner about possible problems is a very good idea. Of course, intermenstrual bleeding can talk about ruptures in the vagina, but this is already such a factor that you need to report to the police. If a woman has breaks, then perhaps she became a victim of rape.
Causes of unplanned bleeding
So, there were intermenstrual bleeding. The causes of this symptom can be quickly and accurately established. So do not speculate on the coffee grounds, and quickly go to the nearest hospital. But on the way, look into your personal calendar. Perhaps, at you the period of an ovulation? This event happens on the 10-16 day of the cycle. In this case, intermenstrual bleeding is very weak and the "flow" quickly dries up. This is not quite normal, but it shows only a small hormonal malfunction in the body. For the health of ladies, there are no dangers.
If when you visit the toilet suddenly became obvious traces of blood on toilet paper, but the linen does not make these stains, then you have exactly ovulation. Eggs leave the ovary, which is accompanied by a decrease in the amount of estrogen in the body. If everything proves to be true, do not panic. You are absolutely healthy and you do not need treatment at all. But if the discharge causes inconvenience and painful sensations appear, then consult a doctor to normalize the hormonal background.
And so on
Quite often intermenstrual bleeding causes have the most banal. For example, a woman incorrectly takes oral contraceptives or misses the time of admission. Maybe she installed an intrauterine device or had a series of procedures with a gynecologist. Sometimes, "blood" a lady is forced to special medicines. It is quite logical that intermenstrual bleeding may occur during miscarriage or inflammation. Bad influence on the health of the ladies also low levels of thyroid hormone, endometriosis and persistent stress. Also, with care, you need to treat your health to adolescent girls and ladies during the period of hormonal rearrangements. The body moves to a new work schedule and can "cut".
When do you have to worry?
Most often, women are greatly frightened if they have intermenstrual bleeding during their pregnancy. Pregnancy - in itself time is not the easiest and joyful, but if there are bloody tracks on the underwear or, worse, the "flood" begins, then there are logical fears for the life and health of the child. This pathology is more common than others. This can be a serious complication, but you do not need to panic right away. Bloody discharge should not be. The exception is the first trimester, when a woman may be unaware of her condition. Then the allocation is smearing. This happens when the fetal egg is attached to the uterus and usually corresponds to the period of menstruation. In other cases, intermenstrual uterine bleeding is a pathology. If a woman has blood at an early age, then there is a threat of miscarriage. In addition, such a symptom can warn of an ectopic or "frozen" pregnancy, as well as a bubble drift. In the late term, blood is due to an abruption or presentation of the placenta. Do not immediately think about the pathology of the fetus. Blood can go because of exacerbation of gynecological diseases in the mother. By the way, mazhujushchie allocation at pregnancy at all do not mean, that the reasons for excitement are not present. In any case, you need to go to the doctor.
To understand the reason for the blood, you need to go to a gynecologist and undergo a series of examinations at the hospital or maternity home. The doctor will take a swab from the vagina and send the sample for a general and biochemical analysis. Be sure to conduct an ultrasound examination of the pelvic organs and fetus. If a pathology is found, the treatment of intermenstrual bleeding will again be slightly slowed down by additional studies. Treatment will be determined by identifying the pathology and stage of the disease. If miscarriage begins, measures will be taken to maintain the pregnancy. There are drugs that stop blood, lowering the tone of the uterus. If you managed to save the fetus, then pregnant women should refrain from sexual activity and stay at maximum rest. For prevention, doctors can recommend a tincture of motherwort or valerian. You can go through acupuncture or endonasal galvanization. It is better not to listen to the advice of folk doctors, since the herbs recommended by them can aggravate the situation.
And so scary when there is bleeding. The intermenstrual period is always perceived as a period of rest and rest. But if complications arise during pregnancy, then panic begins. For example, some miscarriages simply do not respond to treatment. If a miscarriage can not be avoided, then there may be a septic shock due to the remains of the tissue of the dead fetus in the uterus. If the loss of blood exceeds the allowable limits, the parturient may die due to the development of hemorrhagic shock. After scraping due to a bubble drift, a rare malignant cancerous tumor can develop.
Prevention for the sake of
Why think about how to stop intermenstrual bleeding, if you can try to prevent it? First of all, one should think about the natural planning of the family, that is, to abandon abortion. You also need to reduce physical and sexual activity during pregnancy. If a woman has chronic gynecological diseases, then they need to be treated in a timely manner, and ideally - to be tested by a gynecologist before the planned pregnancy and to cure all the sores. It is also good for a woman to fulfill her destiny and become a mother until she is 35 years old.
What about treatment doctors say?
If intermenstrual bleeding has begun; The reasons, treatment and possible risks will be written only by the doctor, so do not neglect his help. Take care of yourself and your child! Doctors forbid self-stopping blood by means of pills. After miscarriage and curettage they are not advised to become pregnant before three to six months. With sex it is better to be more careful, especially if the partner has a large penis. Also, doctors are trying to cool the ardor of potential mothers who are taking delays and blood smears for signs of pregnancy. This may as well be dysfunction of the ovaries. Also, doctors say that pregnant women should not go to the bath, especially with small terms. Blood after intercourse can talk about damage to the mucous membrane or cervix. A neat woman is unlikely to have to worry about painful discharge, but if such a moment is suddenly observed, then there may be sexual infections. It is recommended that doctors check both partners. Based on the results of the tests, the doctor will prescribe drugs, suppositories and ointments. In the event that the analyzes do not show the presence of infections, you will have to start looking for a non-infectious cause.
Hormonal failure causes the whole body to suffer, and not specific organs. You can draw an analogy with a broken clock - until you find and fix the malfunction, do not expect the accuracy of the indicators. Abundant discharges from the uterus can signal the endometriosis, erosion of the cervix and even a cancerous tumor. Here it is impossible to delay with the reference to the doctor and treatment.
Is the treatment
Naturally, a rare woman in her right mind will ignore bleeding, but the process of treatment can be divided into a conservative and progressive one. There are also preventive measures that sometimes seem excessively radical. Let's start with the methods tested by time.
The intake of hormonal drugs is still relevant for normalizing the cycle and stopping bleeding. If the bleeding is caused by stress, then a good way to block it will be a prescription for sedatives.
Have to adjust and diet ladies. Add to the menu more vitamins and iron, which is a lot in beef, legumes, vegetables and fruits.
A floating cycle can not be considered a norm and should be checked by a gynecologist. In time turning, you can "catch" the disease at an early stage and cure it without loss for your body.
If the patient says at the gynecologist's appointment that he plans to switch to oral contraceptives, he will probably tell her that the period of addiction can be accompanied by secretions. Therefore, intermenstrual bleeding when taking OK will not be considered a pathology. A third of all women have mucus discharge, and they remain from three months to six months. What explains this phenomenon? Quite a small dose of hormones!
Intermenstrual bleeding when taking contraceptives appear due to the fact that the body lacks hormones to cover the natural hormonal background. If the allocation is meager and quickly come to naught, then this type of contraception is clearly suitable for you. Just do not forget to address complaints to the doctor in time, if there is a nagging sensation in the abdomen, pain, and the discharge becomes more abundant. If any of the similar symptoms are observed, then the type of contraceptives must be changed. And very abundant discharges of a breakthrough character and speak of atrophy of endometrial cells, but here the dangers, by the way, do not represent. Only consult with a doctor all the same. By the way, it would be a good idea to read the instructions before taking the contraceptives directly. There is information that the daily hormonal dose should be doubled before any discharge stops completely.
You can not finish taking OK halfway, because you can earn anemia and severe malaise. Also it is worth a little to cut yourself in smoking, if this is your pernicious passion. The fact is that cigarettes suppress the production of estrogen.
Pathology and norm
If the girl is very young, then she really does not want to go to the doctor and therefore will preliminarily engage in self-medication. Almost always this is a wrong decision, which can lead to almost a fatal outcome, especially if it is a question of bleeding. If the problem lies in the uterus, then you can not see it with your own eyes, but you can calculate it. If the woman had an abortion, and then the pain began, the temperature increased, then we can assume that there is an endometritis, that is, an inflammation of the inner layer of the uterus. If you do not heal, then the disease will reach a new level and become chronic. Intermenstrual bleeding in endometriosis is a cry for help from the body, as it can not cope with the burden of problems that have fallen on it.
In the endometrium, polyps may appear after abortion. You can not diagnose eyeballs here, of course, but according to the results of hysteroscopy, ultrasound and histology everything becomes clear. Treatment can be obtained only by surgical method with subsequent administration of COC.
You need to pay attention not only to the character, but also to the color of the discharge. If they are brown, it is similar to endometriosis. This disease has already been told a lot, but the consequences are often hushed up. But endometriosis may well turn into infertility.
So, we need to sum up all of the above. First, intermenstrual bleeding can never be ignored. Even in the most innocuous cases, this symptom makes you pay attention to your health, morally calm down, and stabilize your sex life. You can not tolerate bloody discharge and leave in the ignorance of a partner, because, perhaps, their appearance is his fault and the result of violent sex.
Secondly, it is necessary to go to the gynecologist at the first symptoms of bleeding. In the best case, it will simply be a routine inspection, which, by the way, is recommended to be performed a couple of times a year in order to prevent possible troubles in time. Already a gynecologist can tell the cause of bleeding and, let's say, give a referral to a neurologist or psychologist if it's all about stress.
Thirdly, you should not self-medicate and prescribe yourself tablets recommended by the Internet. It is impossible to make a diagnosis based on your own pain. You can not even pinpoint the localization of pain.
Finally, fourthly, at the reception of a specialist, give him as much information as possible. Does bleeding cause discomfort? How long does it take? By "long" to understand you need a period of over three days. Are bleeding worse? Do you have a clear monthly cycle? Are there any painful feelings and what are they? Well, if you can tell about the color and nature of the bleeding, recall the stresses experienced. Of course, ideally, you need to establish contacts with your own gynecologist in order to be observed by one person and have a full history of your visits to this office.
Instead of concluding
It turns out that intermenstrual bleeding is not fatal, but always unpleasant and suspicious. Many women are interested, but is sex life permitted in case of bloody discharge? The question is ambiguous. If the blood goes with adaptation to oral contraceptives, then there are no contraindications. Of course, this is provided that both partners observe the rules of personal hygiene and do not fear the sight of blood. Men are often nervous at the sight of blood and are afraid to make a woman hurt. Explain to your partner that in this situation, excretion is a temporary and painless phenomenon, and sex gives positive emotions and is therefore useful to both of you.
