Still Bleeding From The Vagina After One Month Of Cesarean Delivery?
, a month ago I gave birth by caesarean section, and until now I still have blood coming out of the vagina, yesterday all that came out was only mucus colored, but today the blood came out again, is that normal ??
Postpartum, both caesarean and normal, for 40 days after delivery it is known as the puerperium period. After delivery, it is normal for minimal bleeding to occur after childbirth which can last for + - 40 days depending on the patient's condition. This discharge is known as lochia.
Normally, lochia will last up to 2-3 weeks after delivery, but about 15% of women giving birth have lochia for 6 weeks. Initially, the bleeding will appear bright red, which will gradually darken and fade. Generally, lochia that comes out is minimal, not accompanied by a strong odor and is not accompanied by abdominal pain.
If you are worried then you can check with the gynecologist who performed a cesarean section on you. With physical and medical tests such as ultrasound, you can find out the cause of your complaint and how to handle it properly.
Generally, lochia will not return to a reddish color. Your condition could be caused by =
