Hi Atika .. Thank you for the question given.
The puerperium is the time when the body of a woman who has just given birth will gradually return to normal. The postpartum period is about 6 weeks. Parts of the body such as the uterus, cervix, abdominal wall, and vagina are organs that undergo changes during pregnancy and childbirth. These organs need recovery, namely during the puerperium.
After the puerperium, a woman can immediately experience menstruation. The time for a woman after childbirth to get her menstruation back is different. This is influenced by psychological stress, whether the mother is fully breastfeeding, and the use of contraceptives. Menstruation after the puerperium can be irregular, can be longer or shorter, the amount can be more or less. If you are currently not breastfeeding exclusively or breastfeeding together with formula milk, menstruation will come sooner than when exclusively breastfeeding. Because breastfeeding can be a natural birth control tool. Therefore you don't have to worry about your current situation. But if there is a lot of menstrual blood, or excessive pain, you can get checked out and consult a doctor.
