A Lot Of Blood Comes Out With A Little Lump After Giving Birth?
Afternoon, I kiki / female / 22years .. On November 10th yesterday I gave birth to my second child, and yesterday precisely on November 19th morning there was a lot of blood and a little lump … after that it didn’t come out again … is it still normal ??
Hello, thanks for the question.
Bleeding after childbirth is normal. This is called puerperal blood or lochia, which is blood that comes out of the genitals as a remnant of labor. During labor there is a tear in the uterine wall where the placenta attaches, this tear will cause bleeding. However, the uterus will continue to contract so that the bleeding becomes inactive and the remaining blood will continue to be removed after the delivery process. The remaining blood will continue to be removed for 2-6 weeks after delivery. The first day the blood will be bright red or brown, but the following days until the sixth week, the amount of blood that will be released will be less and the color will become paler. In people who give birth by Caesarean section, the amount of puerperal blood will be less. Blood loss after childbirth is normal, but if the blood comes out a lot like menstrual blood until repeatedly changing pads, puerperal blood smells unpleasant, has a fever or cold, pain in the lower abdomen, feel dizzy, weak, or cause palpitations -thread should consult back to the obstetrician. The doctor will conduct a thorough examination and additional examinations if needed such as an ultrasound examination. Handling is adjusted to the conditions that occur. We recommend that you continue to do a healthy lifestyle, adequate rest, eat healthy and nutritious foods, especially those rich in protein, iron, and vitamin B, such as green vegetables, fruits, side dishes such as meat, chicken, fish, eggs , and so forth.
so, hopefully it helps.
