Menstruation Is Heavy After Giving Birth 14 Months Ago?
Hello I want to ask, right now I am having my first menstruation after giving birth 14 months ago, the blood that comes out is very much but it doesn’t hurt, is it normal or not?
14 months of no menstruation is a condition called amenorrhea where the causes can range from the effects of using birth control, breastfeeding, thyroid disorders, hormonal disorders, or disorders of the reproductive tract.
If then menstruation will usually be a lot but need to watch out if you can more often replace the pads during menstruation or blood out more than 80 ml, there are signs of lack of blood such as pale, weak, cold sweat, until fainting it needs to be treated immediately because this condition is called menorrhagia or bleeding excessive menstruation. In addition, if the menstrual period lasts more than 7 days, including padorrhagia.
Note that if there is a lot of blood but only a short period of 2-3 days it is normal because it's also not menstruating for a long time, the blood that comes out can also be darker than usual. But if it is excessive, it should be checked by an obstetrician to find out the cause. Later it can also be helped to be given treatment to control bleeding.
