Do You Need To Control After 40 Days Of Delivery?
Thank you for the question.
After delivery, the mother will enter the puerperium, which generally lasts between 4-8 weeks (not always exactly 40 days). Therefore, often doctors or obstetricians will not encourage you to control exactly on the 40th day postpartum. Postpartum controls recommended are:
Control as long as the wound in the perineum has not healed completely (usually 1-2 weeks after delivery) Control while there are still complaints after childbirth, for example if breast milk is still not coming out, if a fever appears, abnormal vaginal discharge, abnormal puerperal bleeding, abdominal cramps, etc. Control for the choice of certain types of contraception to prevent the distance between pregnancies that are too close Control of the health condition of the baby and its immunization status Regarding your question, it needs to be clarified, what kind of control is meant? Did the doctor really recommend it to you? At present, are there any complaints that you or your baby have experienced?
The danger or not your condition that does not undergo 40 days postpartum control certainly can only be determined after knowing the intended control details. In general, if your doctor really encourages you to control, of course you should indeed obey the doctor's advice for your own good. But if not, then this control might not be required for you, except if a complaint does occur.
If you or your baby are still experiencing complaints in the 10th month after childbirth, do not hesitate to see yourself directly to the doctor.
I hope this helps.
