From What Age Do Intimate Relationships Take Place After Giving Birth?
Hello, I am Bru finished giving birth in 3 weeks but I had intercourse in 2 weeks already 2x I have no contact with papaka?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Postpartum generally will be completed in 4 to 6 weeks, although some women can experience it in a shorter duration, or even slower. Still brown blood that you experience indicates that your puerperium is not really complete. In this condition, it is recommended to limit sexual relations first. In addition to the condition of the vagina which is still relatively moist and dirty due to the influence of the puerperium making it easier for infections, vaginal lubricant production during the puerperium is generally still very minimal so that you will more easily feel pain and irritation during sexual intercourse. Not only that, although the chances are very small, if pregnancy occurs due to this sexual relationship, then the distance between pregnancies that are too close can have an unfavorable effect on you, your baby is still small, and the fetus that you are carrying later.
We recommend that you first limit sexual intercourse if there is still a lot of blood coming out of your birth canal. First, rest while focusing on breastfeeding your baby so that involution of the reproductive organs after birth can run more optimally. Always maintain the cleanliness of your intimate organs properly to accelerate the healing of scarred labor, while also preventing infection. Do not forget, always do a healthy lifestyle, and consult with a doctor or obstetrician to choose the method of contraception that best suits your condition so that a pregnancy does not occur too close to your previous pregnancy.
Hope this helps ...
