Morning … Wednesday last week I was cured by a doctor at a hospital in the area where I live … My question, today Tuesday (1 week after being curated) still bleeding and this morning came out lumps (not like menstrual lumps). .. And continued BAB, but the color of my stool (BAB) is black .. is that a problem or what? What causes it? how is the solution? thank you
Hello Nida, thanks for asking.
Curettage procedure is an action to remove the fetus and its supporting tissue from the uterus, using a special tool. The procedure certainly causes some blood vessels in the uterine wall to be injured, resulting in bleeding. As with normal childbirth, the injured blood vessels need time to close. Bleeding will definitely occur, either in normal labor or curettage. The difference is, in curettage, bleeding is generally shorter. Bleeding can occur around 2-3 weeks. Blood is initially red and fresh liquid, then gradually becomes dark red or brown and thicker. The color and volume of the blood will eventually decrease, until it finally stops.
Regarding black stools, it is not directly related to curettage, because the reproductive tract is not related to the digestive tract. The possibility of stool is black due to food or stool that is retained for a long time in the digestive tract.
Pay attention to the bleeding that comes out of the vagina, if the bleeding does not decrease gradually, accompanied by abdominal pain, fever, and there is a bad odor, then you should immediately contact the doctor who is treating Obgyn. If there are no signs above, then you don't need to worry.
Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
