Can I Ride A Motorcycle After Giving Birth?
Tonight doctor … I just gave birth normally but with the induction process 3 days ago with a baby who died when under the age of 5 months. There are no stitches. May I start riding the motorbike again to pick up the school kids …? But my puerperal blood is pretty much … thanks for the answer.
Whether it's giving birth to a baby who died in the womb at the age of 5 months or even having a miscarriage, the conditions experienced by these women are the same as those experienced by women who give birth normally, which are both experiencing childbirth.
The puerperium is a period of time in which the woman's body needs time to recover after childbirth and miscarriage, because during pregnancy the condition of the uterus and female reproductive organs will change, other than during childbirth or miscarriage, then the placenta will be separated from the inner wall uterus, this is the condition that causes why there is blood coming out of the birth canal after giving birth.
So even though there is no tear in the vagina (so it is not sewn) it does not negate the injury caused by the release of the placenta from the uterine wall. Women who are in the puerperium should not do strenuous activities and travel long distances, including driving by motorcycle until the puerperal blood stops, because if it is still carried out it is very risky to cause more bleeding. More and more puerperal blood that comes out of course will make the body lose blood, so that it can cause the body to become weak, lethargic, or even faint, long-term blood loss can also cause various other health problems.
Therefore, ideally for 6 or 12 weeks you should reduce strenuous activity and travel far, but if the puerperal blood has stopped much faster than 6 weeks, you can try to increase the type of activity carried out or travel a little distance gradually so do not be spontaneous. travel on a motorcycle, but try to walk around the house first, then gradually walk around the house, but if during the process of increasing the type of activity, complaints such as: returning blood from the birth canal in large numbers, high fever, headaches , shortness or difficulty breathing, abdominal pain. So it is expected that you immediately go to an obstetrician to get further treatment, because these conditions are a sign of danger during the puerperium, which if left without proper treatment can cause serious health problems or even death.
