Sectio Caesaria (SC) surgery is an operative action that aims to stop the pregnancy by removing the fetus from the uterus. Post SC surgery, often encountered a variety of complaints ranging from pain in the former operation, the former operation does not heal or dry, bleeding, infection in the former operation, and various other complaints.
Postpartum is a period after childbirth that lasts between 30-40 days, even more. The puerperium is a time of recovery for the uterus and reproductive organs of the mother and the transition of pregnancy hormone levels to normal again.
Related to your question, it is necessary to recone which part of the pain is felt. Is the lower abdomen, upper, right or left, or pain in the vagina. Pain that is felt after having sex especially after giving birth often occurs in some women. This can be caused by the recovery process of the reproductive organs, especially the uterus and vaginal canal after childbirth, both normal and SC childbirth. Suture marks on the uterus and abdominal wall can trigger pain that occurs, due to nerve injury during the incision surgery. recovery process in nerve injury will last longer, so that pain is often felt even though the former surgery has healed.
Pain can also occur due to muscle contractions in the pelvis or in the area around the reproductive organs. In addition, pain and bleeding after intercourse can also occur due to lacerations or tears in the vaginal wall during sexual intercourse. Generally this is due to the lack of mucus from the vagina / lubricant that serves to protect the lining of the vagina and cervix from friction of the penis during sexual intercourse. In nursing mothers, this condition is normal because the hormone producing milk will reduce mucus production in the vagina.
Other possible causes of bleeding include inflammation in the vaginal wall or in the cervix, use of postpartum contraception, cervical polyps and early signs of cancer in the reproductive organs.
You do not need to worry, in general, pain and bleeding after sexual intercourse is a natural condition and can last between 2-3 days with varying blood volume, but often not too much.
Some things that can reduce pain and bleeding and prevent complaints from recurring include:
Perform more intense foreplay with a partner Not rushed during sexual intercourse Communicate the type / method of desired sexual intercourse Adequate rest Increase water consumption Avoid over-strenuous activities Diligent control to the doctor or midwife after giving birth If the bleeding takes place a lot accompanied by other signs such as weakness, not eager to breastfeed, pain that is continually felt, pain that is getting more intense, until a decrease in consciousness, then immediately check with your nearest obstetrician.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
