Hello. Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
For several days to several weeks after giving birth, women will generally experience blood coming out of their genitals called puerperal blood or lochia. This is related to the condition of removing the placenta from the uterus so that the uterus will contract so that the blood vessels will tear and bleed for about 2 to 6 weeks.
The first day, blood is bright red or brownish red because there is enough blood.
Days 2-6, puerperal blood will be more runny and dark brown or pink.
Days 7-10, blood color is the same or becomes light brown or pink.
Days 11-14, blood color is the same or getting younger, plus the presence of white or yellowish white liquid. It currently consists of white blood cells lining the uterus.
Weeks 3-4, if it still comes out, puerperal blood will be paler or creamy white.
Week 6, the amount of puerperal blood that comes out is getting smaller and brown, pink, or creamy yellow.
In general, by cesarean delivery, usually the amount of puerperal blood that comes out will be less. However, the duration is still a few weeks and the color of the blood will change from red, brown, yellow, to clear.
If you experience the following things you should do an examination to an obstetrician, i.e.
- There is still a lot of blood coming out, that is, more than one stalker in an hour even though you have had enough rest
- Fever or feeling chills
- Blood smells bad
- Blood in the form of large clots
- Pain in the abdomen, especially lower.
- Feeling dizzy and fainting.
Thus the information we can convey. May be useful. Thank you
