How Long Does The Discharge In The Vagina Dry Birth? And The Face Of Puerperal Blood Is Fast
Hello … I want to ask this doctor, I just finished giving birth not until 1 month ago is still 28 days, then my puerperal blood was clean when it was only 20 days after giving birth yesterday if I’m not mistaken, but it’s not really clean, sometimes there are people who like it the mucus is so little, is it natural that if it clears quickly before 40 days it doesn’t come out red blood and I’m not using any more pads anymore … then I ask one more question, right I put the vaginal km in the stitch but it’s not dry yet 28 days, the pain is only the one that doesn’t feel anymore … but the one that is still dry is still wet, is it really long to dry for 40 days it hasn’t been dry yet? some say the worm uses a betel leaf stew anget2 thrown in there r nAnd I see my vagina like mucous out, is it slime or pus, it smells fishy … thanks
Good morning, thanks for the question
During the puerperium will produce lochia which is a normal fluid that comes out after giving birth. The longer the number of lochia produced will be less. Types of lokia include:
- Lokia rubra (blood, tissue residue, and decidua) is produced in the first few hours. Then in 3-4 days the oertama will gradually diminish and turn to brownish red.
- Lokia serosa is produced after 3-4 days, the color becomes younger and odorless
- Lokia alba (leukocytes and decidual cells that degenerate) is removed after 10 days or 2-3 weeks after giving birth, lochia will become thicker and white rather yellow
During weeks 5 and 6 the lochia fluid is much reduced and stops at week 8, so in your case it is classified as normal.
Perineal sutures will take up to 6 weeks to heal and maybe the mother will feel comfortable again after 6 months. Mothers can use warm water to wash in the area, but do not use soap with a fragrance to wash the female area. If the stitching area feels hot, painful, smelly, or feels feverish, you should consult a doctor to assess whether there is an infection or maybe the stitches are open.
That's all, hope you can help
