The Left Stomach Still Feels Throbbing After 6 Months Of Giving Birth?
Hello .. r n this way, after I gave birth for 6 months, I have never had a period, and when I massage my left side of the stomach, there is a beat, but I have never had sex with my husband, during after childbirth,
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Not menstruating 6 months after giving birth is a natural thing, especially for mothers who undergo exclusive breastfeeding because exclusive breastfeeding can be beneficial in postponing pregnancy and menstruation naturally. If you do not give breast milk, menstruation can return about 6-8 weeks after delivery. If you are not breastfeeding but not menstruating, there may be abnormalities in your reproductive system such as the appearance of cysts or hormonal abnormalities.
Regarding the beating in the stomach you mean, among the possibilities are:
Your own heartbeat, which is located on the left
The beat of the large artery (aorta) that passes through the stomach, but usually can only be felt in those who are very thin
Increased blood flow to the stomach area after eating
Dilation of large blood vessels
Regarding your condition, because it is still susceptible to misunderstanding, we suggest that you check yourself at least with a general practitioner first so that it can be detected about the beat you mean. Once your doctor knows the beat, the doctor can determine if it is an abnormality or something to worry about. If it is considered complicated or still confusing, your doctor may later refer you for further examination by an internal medicine doctor or surgeon.
Meanwhile, to help eliminate the possibility of getting pregnant, you can try doing a test pack at home. Then maintain a good lifestyle by staying away from stress, cigarette smoke, consume more water and eat nutritious foods and get adequate rest. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
