Puerperal Blood That Comes Out A Lot On The 9th Day After Childbirth?
, I gave birth on January 2, 2020 … today is the 9th day after giving birth, my puerperal blood came out a lot / heavy .. is that normal?
Hello Dian, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Normally, within 24-36 days after giving birth, there will indeed be fluid coming out of the birth canal and its color and volume can vary depending on the distance the fluid comes out with the time of delivery.
Generally, on the 9th day as in your condition, the fluid coming out of the birth canal has started to turn whiter due to an increased white blood cell count and other compositions of the fluid that have decreased.
If the fluid that comes out is still in the form of blood and is quite a lot, the complaint is generally unnatural and can be caused by several possible conditions such as the remaining placenta in the womb or the presence of blood clotting disorders.
Therefore, you should check the complaint further to your obstetrician for further evaluation of your current condition, and to determine what treatment should be given to you.
In the meantime, there are no medicines that are recommended for you to take without clear doctor's advice. You are also advised to continue breastfeeding your child as usual, maintain daily nutritional intake and also better maintain the cleanliness of your female area, especially if there are stitches after the birth.
I hope this helps.
