Dark Urine After Giving Birth By Caesarean Section?
Good morning, my wife gave birth by cesar. After 4 days are allowed to go home. After consuming the drug (3x a day), the next morning the urine is dark. Is that normal? Thank you
Hello, good morning..
Darker colored urine in a newborn mother can be a sign that she is not getting enough fluids (dehydration) while breastfeeding. Busyness in caring for a baby often makes a new mother forget to get enough to eat and drink, so she is not getting enough fluids. Mothers who breastfeed have more water needs, which is about 3 liters per day.
Apart from lack of fluids during breastfeeding, dark urine can also be caused by other conditions, such as urinary tract infections, or urinary tract injuries (for example due to catheter / urinary insertion) during and after caesarean delivery.
At this time, we recommend that your wife get enough water which is 3 liters per day, then observe whether there are signs of improvement in symptoms. If your wife still has complaints of dark urine despite consuming a lot of water, then your wife should check this directly to the obstetrician who previously handled your wife. Beware if your wife has a high fever, nausea, vomiting, pain in the lower abdomen or waist, and pain when urinating. If these symptoms appear, do not delay and see a doctor immediately ..
That's all, hope that helps :)
