Does A Miscarriage Without A Curette Have A Puerperium?
Afternoon. I’m Nisa. I want to be a consul. March 19th last month I miscarried. Well, the cessation of blood after a miscarriage on the 24th of the 22nd is still there but it’s just like that: that’s it. Then at night there was no one the next day. Well, in the afternoon I had abs, there was more blood. Since then I have used Softex again and there is no blood. In conclusion, do I still have puerperium?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
We are sorry for the loss you went through earlier. May God replace your loss with better blessings in the future.
Puerperium (puerperium) in the medical realm is defined as the period after childbirth until the reproductive organs experience involution back to their pre-pregnancy state. If you previously had a miscarriage, then just like women who have given birth, your reproductive organs also need time to return to their normal shape and function. Therefore, the symptoms that appear in general will be the same as for women who have given birth vaginally, only the volume and duration of bleeding is often less because the tissue that grows in the uterus is not as much as when you give birth at term.
If you still bleed, even if in small amounts, it means that the tissue left over from your previous pregnancy has not been completely clean. Indeed, post-miscarriage, bleeding can stop in varying times, some are short less than 1 week, but some are prolonged for more than 2 weeks. As long as the volume of bleeding is within reasonable limits (not to spend more than 10 pads in a day) and does not cause you to experience symptoms of anemia (dizziness, paleness, weakness, shortness of breath), then your condition is probably still normal. In general, the uterus may be declared clean if the bleeding has stopped for more than 2 times 24 hours.
In order to optimize recovery after a miscarriage, it is recommended that you do the following:
Get plenty of rest
Limit activities that are too strenuous, including lifting heavy objects, going up and down stairs, walking or running too much
Eat and drink nutritious
Limit sexual intercourse first while there is still active bleeding from the vagina
Keep your intimate organs clean
Use pads to control the amount of bleeding
Stay away from cigarettes
However, if the bleeding has not stopped until 2 weeks after the miscarriage, or other complaints arise, such as fever, severe abdominal pain, and abnormally colored or foul-smelling discharge from the vagina, do not hesitate to consult an obstetrician immediately for treatment. more yes..
I hope this helps.
