Excessive Bleeding After 39 Days Of Postpartum Period?
Good afternoon. I am 25 years old. I had a puerperium for 39 days, then blood came out. The blood was so large that I had to change pads every 3 hours. Is menstrual blood normal? Is it menstruation or bleeding? Since I gave birth, I was a hypertensive and hypoalbumin patient
Thank you for the question.
Heavy bleeding after the puerperium is usually a normal condition when your menstrual cycle has just begun. This bleeding can sometimes be very much due to the influence of hormonal conditions that are not balanced. History of hypertension and hypoalbuminemia during pregnancy and childbirth should not be directly related to this. However, several possible causes of hypoalbuminemia can indeed also cause blood clotting disorders, thus triggering as much menstrual bleeding as you experience.
Aside from the normal postpartum conditions, your heavy periods may also be affected by fatigue, stress, side effects of certain medications, blood clotting disorders, disorders of the reproductive organs (such as myoma, pelvic inflammation, endometriosis, uterine cancer), thyroid gland disorders , etc.
If this bleeding continues for a reasonable duration (no more than 14 days), it is not accompanied by massive bleeding (more than 10 pads a day), and does not appear with other severe complaints, it seems that this condition does not always indicate serious illness. You can multiply before resting, limit sex that involves vaginal penetration when there is still heavy bleeding, multiply the consumption of foods rich in vitamin K, drink plenty, get enough sleep, exercise regularly, and diligently breastfeed your baby's exclusive breastfeeding. Do not forget, do not carelessly take medicine without direct advice from a doctor. If within 2 weeks your condition has not improved, try to see yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician to get further treatment, okay?
I hope this helps.
