Planning A Pregnancy After IUFD?
good afternoon, I want to ask about the IUFD (Solutio Placenta) which happened to me 10 days ago, at this time I don’t issue Lochea anymore, can I be said to be quitting after childbirth?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Postpartum mucus discharge (including giving birth with IUFD) can last for 4 to 8 weeks. In general, the mucus that comes out during childbirth is divided into 4, namely:
Lochia rubra (red, bloody, remaining amniotic fluid, decidual cells, caseosa vernix, lanugo, and meconium), occur for 1 to 2 days after saline
Lochia sanguinolenta (yellowish red, filled with blood and mucus), occurs for 3 to 7 days after saline
Lochia serosa (whitish yellow, no longer containing blood), occurs for 1 to 2 weeks after saline
Lochia alba (whitish to clear), occurs for more than 2 weeks after copying
Need to be clarified, what kind of conditions do you mean by no longer issuing lochia? Is it not lochia at all even though the color is whitish or yellowish? Or actually it still comes out lochia, it's just that the color is no longer reddish?
Our advice, you do post-copy control to the obstetrician so that you can be evaluated, whether your current condition has returned fertile, or not. The doctor can carry out further examinations, such as ultrasound, laboratory, and so on to assess your readiness to return to containing a new fetus. Factors that cause IUFD that you experienced before will also be evaluated further so that prevention efforts can be done so that it does not return again in the future. Frequently, after delivery, your doctor will advise you to give time lag (usually in the range of 1 to 6 months) before you can finally get back to planning for pregnancy. The goal is, so that your reproductive organs are completely recovered, so that they are ready to contain a new fetus.
Our current recommendations for you:
Always live a healthy lifestyle, so that postpartum recovery takes place more quickly, including by getting more rest, eating a variety of nutritious foods, drinking enough, and starting back to exercise as much as you can
Always keep your sex organs clean
Stay away from cigarettes and alcohol
Also ask your husband to always live a healthy lifestyle
If the doctor states that you are safe to get pregnant again, have sexual relations regularly 2 to 3 days with your partner to increase the chances of pregnancy
Hope this helps ...
