Is It Problematic If Blood Comes Out After A Cesarean Section And The Postnatal Period Is Over?

There is a history of cesarean section, and when it is past the puerperium, but you feel a complaint of bleeding a week later accompanied by pain or heat in the area of surgery, then you should exercise control to the doctor who treats you. This is needed to ensure your clinical condition and the cause of your complaint directly after the birth you have.
In general, bleeding after childbirth is menstrual bleeding that can last about 3-7 days. This condition is a pattern of your menstrual cycle after giving birth. Having menstruation that occurs after childbirth, indicates recovery of the reproductive system or your uterus has returned to normal after delivery. Therefore, bleeding like menstruation for 5 days that you live may be a natural thing.
However, if this bleeding has stopped after 5 days, and a week later followed by continued bleeding or you replace the pads more than once per hour, then it is necessary to do further evaluation with an immediate check-up to the obstetrician. Some of the medical conditions below can trigger bleeding complaints that continue after the puerperium, such as:
1. there is still remaining placenta
2. infection after delivery
3. blood clotting disorders
4. uterine atony or uterine contractions to recover are not going well
5. preeclampsia or the presence of high blood pressure and protein in the urine
6. uterine tears
The presence of bleeding that continues to be active after labor and the puerperium, is likely to cause annoying complaints, such as weakness, pale, anemia, dizziness, cold sweat, palpitations or nausea, vomiting.
While painful or hot surgical wounds are normal after surgery, as long as they are dry and not inflamed. However, complaints of this pain should have begun to decrease a lot, and every day continues to decrease.
Therefore, immediately visit your obstetrician for further evaluation and examination. The doctor will conduct an interview related to the complaint you feel, then the examination of bleeding and surgical wounds can be done directly, so that your doctor will provide treatment according to the results of the examination.
For now, if you are exhausted from your activities or work. You should take a break from all your activities and you should avoid sleeping late at night. Sufficient fluid and nutritious food needs to prevent the risk of anemia.
