The postpartum period is an adaptation for the body of a new mother to return to its normal state before pregnancy. This includes changes in the size of the reproductive organs to changes in levels of female hormones. Generally the postpartum period lasts up to 42 days.
The postpartum period itself in the medical world is divided into 3, namely:
3-4 days after childbirth, generally women will experience bleeding mixed with mucus, after which for about a week a yellowish or brownish discharge that contains more white blood cells than red blood cells is accompanied by mucus and then about 3 weeks later, discharge like vaginal discharge which are the cells of the reproductive organs that are recovering. Possibly what happens to you with the discharge of brown mucus is a normal process. Signs of infection during the puerperium that need to be worried about include: continuous bleeding after 1 week after delivery, discharge that smells bad, abdominal pain, fever. If you experience the above symptoms you should immediately see a gynecologist. The doctor will perform a deep examination and possibly an ultrasound of the abdomen to assess your condition and provide appropriate treatment.
Suggestions for you:
Eating healthy and nutritious Get enough rest Manage stress well Try not to have sex with your partner until the postpartum period is over.
