Bleeding From The Vagina After 8 Months Of Tubectomy Surgery, What Is Menstruation?
Hello … since 8 months ago I had a cesarean section and was sterile, for 8 months I did not have my period. But now I have bleeding a lot but it doesn’t hurt. Is it dangerous or not? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Sterile, which is done during cesarean section is the binding or cutting of the fallopian tube (the tube that connects the uterus to the ovary). With this binding of the fallopian tubes, the egg that is released by the ovary will not be able to meet the sperm so that the possibility of pregnancy is very, very small, almost non-existent. This procedure is called a tubectomy. The uterus and egg bladder will be able to function as usual so that hormonal conditions will remain normal and the endometrial lining of the uterus can also thicken and shed so that menstruation will continue.
Menstruation can occur approximately 4-8 weeks postpartum in women who are not breastfeeding, while in women who are exclusively breastfeeding, the return of menstruation may occur longer (up to 6 months or more). Postpartum, menstruation that occurs can also change its pattern. Menstruation can be irregular in the first months, bleeding occurs very much or even very little, menstruation occurs longer or even shorter. It is better if you pay attention to the bleeding that is happening at this time. If the bleeding is so much that you have to change pads every 1-2 hours, or if the bleeding lasts more than 7 days, there are signs of anemia such as dizziness, fainting, cold hands and feet, pale skin and under the eyes, then immediately go to the Gynecologist for further examination. The doctor can perform an ultrasound examination to see inside your uterus for certain abnormalities, as well as blood and hormonal tests if necessary.
If there are no signs mentioned above, then it is possible that only normal menstruation will occur. Make sure you get plenty of rest and sleep, drink enough, eat adequate amounts of nutritious food, and exercise regularly.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
