It is with such a complaint that women suffering from myomatous tumors of the reproductive organ come to the doctor. Some patients come to the doctor, still not realizing what diagnosis she will be exposed to, complaining about the violation of the ovarian-menstrual cycle.
How does uterine fibroids affect menstruation?
The nodes in the uterus directly affect the amount of blood loss during menstruation. The dependence of the size of myoma education is also directly proportional to the size of the nodes, as well as their localization. So a small uterine fibroid, located intramurally, that is, in the thickness of the muscular layer of the female reproductive organ, may not give any clinical symptoms, such fibroids are completely asymptomatic and can be detected during routine inspections or during ultrasound, and will be a random finding. With a large node size or nodes, their submucous positioning clinical symptoms will be quite pronounced. This is explained by two factors: the first is the presence of the node itself in the uterus prevents its normal physiological reduction, due to which blood loss does not go beyond the limits of the physiological norm. The presence of a foreign body causes hypotension of the muscular organ, due to which the menstrual blood loss increases. The second point that causes a symptom of abundant menstruation is a submucous node, a node that deforms the uterine cavity and increases the area of the menstruating surface, that is, the area that is bleeding. And the inevitable combination of the second and the first moment gives a pronounced bleeding, which can manifest as in the period of onset of cyclic menstruation, the one between them, which already has a different name - acyclic uterine bleeding.
Accordingly, blood loss provokes a significant drop in the level of hemoglobin in the blood, anemia, which leaves its mark on the clinical picture of uterine fibroids in the form of constant and persistent weakness, fatigue, fatigue.
Uterine fibroids: delayed menses
Considering the above, a logical question arises: “Can there be a delay in uterine myoma?” Despite the fact that fibroids are characterized by copious bloody discharge, indeed with such a diagnosis, rather long delays can occur. Of course, they constitute a smaller part of the clinical symptoms of this diagnosis and are, rather, the exception. And this fact is quite understandable.
Delayed menstruation in uterine myoma: causes
It is no secret to anyone that myoma is a dyshormonal disease of the female reproductive system, in which the estrogenic factor (an increase in the level of estrogen in the blood), the progesterone link, in which the node grows under the influence of gestagens, is prevalent in the root cause of the tumor. That is, a clear pattern of hormonal disruption in the female reproductive system is traced. And hormonal shifts inevitably lead to the disintegration of the ovarian-menstrual cycle, which begins to not fit into the previously defined boundaries, in which menstruation does not come in time, then is characterized by an increase in the amount of blood secreted.
Uterine fibroids delayed menstruation: the reason lies in the uneven distribution of hormones, the absence in the premenstrual period of a sharp decline in levels of both progesterone and estrogen, which leads to vasospasm, endometrial ischemia, injury to vascular structures,
followed by a sharp increase in blood flow in the damaged vessels, which is manifested by the rejection of the functional layer of the endometrium and the onset of menstruation. Uterine fibroids and delayed menstruation are characterized by a violation of these physiological processes through the violation of hormonal regulation of the processes.
That is, it is almost impossible to answer the question “how do menstrual periods in uterus myoma last” by their regularity, since hormonal pathogenetic mechanisms of fibroids affect not only the formation of myomatous nodes, but also the organism as a whole, disrupting homeostasis. And to predict their regularity is unlikely to succeed. What can be said for sure, that the volume of blood loss with large submucous formations will significantly exceed the norm.
Forewarned is forearmed. Therefore, you had complaints about an increase in the volume of menstrual blood loss, there were discharge of bloody nature during the period between menstruations, pain in the lower abdomen - do not hope for self-healing.
Since at least the pathological process is also benign in nature, it can malign under certain circumstances and provocative factors. The main thing - do not miss the moment.
