Thanks for the details.
my pleasure.ls advice.............
I understand that you have normal flow before and since a year you have reduced flow and the colour of the blood too is brownish in colour
And you always have a feeling that the blood is getting obstructed during the flow
there is also some mild pain on the first day
There are two possibilities here, that the brownish blood could be due to obstruction as you feel and the most common cause is imperforate hymen.
As you are married and have normal sexual life so I doubt this
The other possibility would be old tissue is flowing down everytime you have cycles and the fresh tissue is piling up in the uterus
This will cause increased thickness of the lining of the uterus.
Is there anything to be worried off? because I donot understand much medical terms
There is no need to worry. But treatment would be required.
USG for whole abdomen?
Yes. Get the USG of abdomen and see a gynecologist
Is the problem is major?
The gynecologist will also examine you to rule out any other causes.
that's so kind of you...
any other advice?
Depending on the cause, the doctor will prescribe you hormonal pills or if required will perform dilatation and curretage.
Have diet rich in iron
and follow regular physical exercises and healthy habits.
Is there anything else I can help you with?
no doc. thanks a lot...bye
