Blood Came Out Again After Finishing Puerperal 1 Week Ago?
Night .. I just had a cesarean about 3 weeks ago. And this is my 4th SC … Postpartum blood comes out to normal in about 2 weeks. Well, 1 week ago, the childbirth did not come out again. Suddenly this afternoon there was more blood coming out … even more from the start of giving birth yesterday. Is that reasonable? I really do many activities taking care of 4 children. Oh yes, for information after the SC yesterday I was immediately sterilized. Does it matter? Thank you for the response.

We understand the concerns that you feel
The postnatal postpartum period occurs within 40 days or 2-6 weeks, but it can vary from woman to woman. The puerperal blood in medical terms is called lochia, red in color and initially will come out more then gradually decrease and turn white to whitish. The puerperal blood comes from the placenta which contains blood vessels that attach to the uterine wall, then is removed after the labor phase. After that the uterus will get ready for the next menstrual cycle which is affected by reproductive hormones in the body.
The bleeding you experience can be caused by the uncompleted puerperium, menstrual bleeding, or post partum hemorrhage (PPH) / postpartum bleeding that can occur several days to weeks after giving birth. PPH can occur due to disruption of uterine contractions, tears in the birth canal, tears in the uterine wall (uterine rupture), placenta previa / Akreta and blood clotting disorders.
It is worth watching out if postpartum bleeding is accompanied by complaints such as lower abdominal pain, fever accompanied by chills, blood that comes out quite a lot and red a few weeks after giving birth, dizziness, palpitations, and blood smells.
To find out more about your condition, we strongly recommend checking with the nearest doctor or obstetrician to get an ultrasound examination. This examination can help assess the condition / picture of the uterus and other reproductive organs.
All you have to do is multiply rest at home, avoid fatigue and stress, consumption of healthy and nutritious foods, consumption of blood-added tablets to prevent anemia in mothers after childbirth.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
