Blood That Comes Out After Childbirth?
I am a 23 year old woman. On the 5th october I gave birth by Caesarean, and I experienced puerperium for only about 3 weeks. A week after quitting postpartum, to be exact a month after I gave birth again blood came out, it came out profusely and was accompanied by a blood clot coming out u0026amp; lumps like white flesh the size of an adult thumb, it lasts for 5 days. After 3 days the blood came out again, but not as hard as the first. The question is, blood that comes out including menstruation or postpartum? Then the second blood is due to the remaining blood that comes out first? Thank you for answering my question.
The puerperium is a period where after removing the placenta until about 40 days postpartum (about 6 weeks), is a recovery period such as the uterus, cervix, abdominal wall, vagina and perineum to the condition before pregnancy. Blood that comes out in the puerperium is the decay of the rest and uterine lining. The blood that comes out can also come out in the form of blood clots or clots. Usually the color of the blood will be different from the first day to the following days, usually the beginning of puerperal blood is bright red or brownish red, then the following days in the first week the blood is dark brown and / or pink, the next week the lighter color is sometimes reddish if active again, in the following weeks the blood color is paler pink or even almost looks like white, the sixth week the less puerperal blood comes out and slowly stops. Most likely the bleeding is still part of the puerperium and blood that comes out later is still left over from previous bleeding. But to ensure further examination is still needed directly by a specialist Obgyn, to ascertain whether the blood and blood clots that come out is indeed still part of the puerperium or can be caused by other possibilities such as:
there are injuries, there is an infection process, there are polyps from menstrual placenta, etc. Some things you need to pay attention to:
