my wife 6 months ago gave birth in a SC, but now sometimes it still bleeds, but rarely, why is that?
Thank you for the question.
Postpartum hemorrhage, whether normal or cesarean delivery, naturally does not last for more than 6-8 weeks. In fact, usually, from throughout the postpartum period, the release of fresh blood only occurs in the first 1-4 weeks, while the rest is only in the form of brown mucus, yellowish, to vaginal discharge.
As for the condition of your wife who is still bleeding from her genitals 6 months after childbirth, it could indicate some of the following conditions:
There is still residual pregnancy tissue left in the uterus. Return of a new menstrual cycle. Unbalanced hormones Side effects of drugs or contraception There are certain diseases, such as endometriosis, pelvic inflammation, polyps, cysts, bleeding disorders, cervical cancer, etc. You should invite your wife You check the condition directly to the doctor or obstetrician. Through an ultrasound examination, pap smear, blood test, or maybe other supporting tests, often the doctor can already assess, whether the condition is dangerous or not, and what sort of treatment should be taken to overcome it. Meanwhile, you can encourage your wife to:
Breastfeed the baby's breast milk to the maximum age of 2 years or more Improve the cleanliness of her intimate organs Do not have excessive sex when there is still a lot of blood coming out of his genitals Do not carelessly take medication or use contraception without first seeing a doctor Eat and drink healthy, and also live with style live a healthy life in your daily life Don't be too tired to do your activities. Hope it helps.
