Having Sex After Giving Birth
Can you get pregnant before the puerperal blood Already stopped having intercourse with her husband after that the puerperal blood came out again?
Hello Nadya, thanks for the question.
After giving birth, a woman will experience puerperium in a period of 3-6 weeks. Having sex after giving birth is basically no problem but several things must be considered to avoid things that are not desirable. Having sex is best done after the bleeding in the postpartum period has stopped, besides the presence or absence of stitches, whether the stitches are dry or not, and the readiness of the mother to have sex also must be considered. One reason you should have sex after bleeding is complete is so that the reproductive organs recover and avoid infection of the uterus.
An intimate relationship without contraception will certainly have the possibility for the occurrence of pregnancy. However, mothers who exclusively breastfed can be less likely because breastfeeding is a natural contraception. Therefore, if you want to postpone pregnancy, then use contraception when having sex.
When the bleeding has stopped and you have sex then bleeding can reappear due to injury due to injury during sexual intercourse such as sexual intercourse that is too rough, less lubricating, and so on. Some possibilities can also be underlying such as menstrual cycles that have returned, ovulation bleeding, inflammation of the cervix, and so on.
If there is heavy bleeding and other complaints such as abdominal pain, itching in the vagina, nausea, etc. immediately see a doctor for further treatment.
That's all, hope it helps.
