Many women find discussing their periods or any problem related to their cycle embarrassing. However, it is precisely because of this attitude that some disorders are not identified and examined in time. To avoid making this mistake once again, we strongly recommend that you read this article where we will discuss symptoms that may occur during menstruation and those which indicate that something is wrong with your body. If you experience any of the symptoms listed below, consult your gynecologist so that he can identify the problem and treat it in time.
1. You have extremely heavy bleeding
You've probably heard that usually during menstruation, a woman loses the equivalent of one or two tablespoons of blood. But if you use more than five tampons or sanitary napkins a day and they are full of blood, it is important to talk to your doctor, as this symptom may be related to hormonal imbalances and health problems.
2. You have really intense cramps
Many women suffer from menstrual cramps and this should not be considered something "normal". If you experience extremely painful sensations in the pelvic area during your periods, do not ignore them. These pains can be caused by the presence of endometriosis, uterine fibroma, genital tuberculosis, etc.
3. You sweat excessively
During menstruation, some women may experience excessive sweating. This sensation, that is manifested by hot flashes, is usually due to the influence of female hormones on the sweat glands.
4. You see large blood clots in your vaginal discharge
Your menstrual blood should flow easily. However, some women think that the presence of big blood clots during their menstruation is quite normal, and they are wrong. These clots can not only mean that you have fibroids, but they can also cause obstructions and other serious illnesses.
5. You have severe lower back pain
Back pain during menstruation is not something extraordinary, but if it is very severe and is accompanied by pain in other areas of the pelvis, it may signal the presence of certain health problems such as endometriosis, cysts or fibroids.
6. You have very painful bowel movements
There are many reasons why you may have painful stools, and many of these reasons are not related to your cycle. But if it happens frequently or only during your period, you could have endometriosis. It is not unusual to have this type of pain during menstruation, but severe pain could mean that your uterine lining is developing on your appendix or intestines.
Pay attention to what happens during your period so that you can quickly discover and treat any problems. Above all, your health depends on how cautious you are!
