Puerperal Blood Comes Out Only In The Form Of Drops After 1 Week Of Childbirth, Is It Normal?
I have given birth on February 23rd, 2020 My puerperal blood came out, but it was clear that a lot but it was just so late that it didn’t come out and it was normal pink ???
Thank you for the question.
After giving birth, the mother will experience the puerperium, the period from the birth of the placenta to the cleanliness of all tissues from the uterus. Normally, the puerperium lasts for 6 to 8 weeks.
When the puerperium takes place, a lot of bleeding in the form of bleeding (dark red to young) usually only occurs the first 1-2 weeks (lokia rubra). Furthermore, the mucus that comes out during childbirth will usually be brown, yellowish, to whitish along with the start of cleansing the tissue in your uterus. Therefore, the condition you are experiencing is most likely still normal.
You need to worry if you experience abnormal puerperal symptoms, such as:
Excessive bleeding and prolonged (more than 8 weeks)
Exit vaginal discharge that is abnormal and smells bad
Severe abdominal pain or cramps, fever, other signs of bleeding (such as frequent bruising or nosebleeds), and other severe complaints
If there are one or more of the above danger signs during your childbirth, do not hesitate to check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician, yes. Worry, complaints like this indicate that there is still residual tissue left in the uterus You. It could also, complaints like this arise because of infection, bleeding disorders, myoma, pelvic inflammation, or many other medical conditions that require further management from the doctor.
In the meantime, what needs to be done is:
Be diligent in breastfeeding your baby's milk
Don't overdo sexual intercourse that involves penetration of the penis into the vagina
Reduce tiring physical activity
Live a healthy diet and get enough sleep
Hope this helps.
