For those of you who often or even experience menstrual pain until you pass out, it can indicate something abnormal with your body or reproductive organs. Let's look, some menstrual conditions that must be watched out and can cause menstrual pain until fainting.
Conditions that can cause menstrual pain until fainting
Secondary dysmenorrhea is when you experience menstrual pain caused by an underlying condition, such as a poor body condition, abnormalities in the reproductive system, or maybe you are using contraception. Without the right medical diagnosis, you cannot determine immediately what disease causes menstrual pain until fainting. The following are the symptoms that underlie your menstrual condition differently:
Endometriosis, can be one of the causes of intense pain that causes a person to become unconscious. Usually one symptom of secondary dysmenorrhea occurs when women are in childbearing age, around 20-35 years.
This happens because the tissue that is supposed to coat your uterus actually grows outside the uterus in your fallopian tube. This network still functions like normal uterine tissue, and will decay into blood during menstruation.
However, because the tissue grows outside the uterus, blood cannot flow outside the body and get trapped inside. This results in severe internal bleeding and inflammation, which can cause menstrual pain until fainting.
2. Uterine fibroids
One type of menstrual pain can be caused by uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids occur due to excessive bleeding. If you experience something like this, it is recommended that you undergo an examination because it can be caused by a benign tumor in the urinary tract. These benign tumors are usually small in size, about 1 cm in size, and appear in women in their 30s or 40s.
Fibroids can cause severe pain and pain and can cause a woman to become unconscious. Uterine fibroids will also make bleeding excessive. Generally, bleeding will not stop 3-4 days, but can reach weeks.
3. Pelvic inflammation
Pelvic inflammatory disease is a condition where pain in the lower abdomen during menstruation is accompanied by fever. This condition is often experienced by many women, even in some cases, women can experience menstrual pain until they pass out. Usually, this happens because it is caused by inflammation near the urinary tract. If left unchecked, it will develop into an infection and become a sexually transmitted disease. One example is gonorrhea, which can cause infertility for women who experience it.
Anemia, is actually not a symptom of secondary dysmenorrhoea. This is a condition where your red blood cell count is lower than normal. Well, this is common during menstruation, where during menstruation, the body secretes enough blood. If you have anemia, your body does not get enough oxygen-rich blood. Because oxygen is circulated through the blood, as a result you may feel weak, even unconscious because oxygen does not reach the brain.
What can be done if you pass out due to severe menstrual pain
For those of you who experience menstrual conditions as above, the first aid you can take is to consult a doctor. Symptoms of weakness to fainting, are already a sign for you to find the right diagnosis to relieve menstrual problems. The doctor will recommend an ultrasound examination, blood test, urine test to hysteroscopy, to find out the causes and actions to be taken.
