I want to ask my birth of a child in my cesarean section 75 days after surgery, is that okay? But if my child has a normal bleeding 60 days, I ask for an explanation? Is it menstruating or what blood? isn’t that right?

Hello Owiz,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Postpartum hemorrhage after delivery, either by cesarean delivery or normal delivery, should normally last around 6 to 8 weeks. During the puerperium, the mucus that comes out is often only the first 1 to 3 weeks that are reddish because they contain blood. The rest, the puerperal mucus will be more yellowish to whitish due to the reduced blood content.


If you experience prolonged bleeding after delivery, especially with a lot of bleeding intensity, you should be vigilant. Although it can be caused by a normal menstrual cycle, prolonged bleeding can also indicate other health problems, for example:

Impaired tone (strength of muscle contraction) of the uterus
Tears in the birth canal, starting from the vagina, cervix, and so on
The remaining placenta (placenta) is left in the uterus
Bleeding disorders, for example due to hemophilia, leukemia, ITP (idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura), etc.

The IUD that you are using can also cause excessive bleeding after copy. However, naturally, bleeding due to side effects of the IUD does not occur as long as you experience now.


Check yourself immediately to a doctor or obstetrician to be given the best solution for your complaint. Frequently, your doctor will also recommend that you undergo a blood and ultrasound examination before giving you the right treatment.


In the meantime, we recommend that you first make the following efforts:

Feed your baby ASI. Breastfeeding breast milk can accelerate the recovery of postpartum reproductive organs so that bleeding can be suppressed
Not too much sexual intercourse if there is still a lot of blood from the genitals
much rest
Eat a variety of nutritious foods, especially those that contain lots of iron and vitamin K
Do not smoke or consume alcohol
Don't over-exert physical activity
Use pads, and change pads regularly to control the amount of bleeding that occurs

Hope this helps ...
