Puerperal Blood Came Out A Lot 1 Month After Giving Birth?
Tonight Doc I just gave birth mid-January yesterday, today I bleed pretty much puerperal blood. Is that dangerous? Thanks
Thank you for the question.
The puerperium will usually last 4 to 8 weeks postpartum. As for throughout the postpartum period, blood mucus generally will only come out in the first 1 to 2 weeks. Furthermore, the mucus that comes out will be brown, yellowish, then vaginal discharge as clean tissue remains from your uterus from pregnancy.
The condition for you to re-bleed a lot 1 month after giving birth can naturally be caused by part of the postpartum that has not yet been completed, or your new menstrual cycle has taken place. But it could also, this bleeding actually indicates the remaining placenta left in the uterus, an infection around your reproductive organs, a disturbance in the process of blood clotting, or other diseases around the reproductive organs, such as myoma, pelvic inflammation, cervical cancer, and etc.
Try to multiply your rest first, while keeping your diet, managing stress well, eating and drinking healthy, and keep your intimate organs clean better. While this, feed your baby breast milk as often as possible as needed, while observing, how much and how long the duration of the bleeding occurs. If within 2-8 days the bleeding stops, not accompanied by massive bleeding or other more severe complaints, often this is not dangerous. However, if bleeding occurs very much, very long, or accompanied by abnormal vaginal discharge, severe abdominal cramps, fever, and other severe complaints, immediately check with your doctor or obstetrician to be treated further according to the cause.
I hope this helps.
