The Stitches Give Birth Normally?
Tonight, I want to ask. I have delivered normally after 40 days, sorry for continuing this afternoon, I showered and squatted to clean up, I accidentally touched there was a lump like that, was that the connection where I had become a flesh or what? I fear. Ohiya I also breast milk, why every time I breastfeed my right side, the left side hurts and always comes out. And vice versa.
Thank you for your question.
Lumps that occur after childbirth can usually be caused by stitches due to tissue tears around the vagina. Healing on the former stitches will generally give uneven results or will be slightly bumpy. This is very normal. Lumps can be dangerous if there are signs of infection, such as: swelling, festering, redness, pain when touched and fever.
If there are any of the following signs, then immediately check with your obstetrician, because if not checked immediately will cause complications. Postpartum mothers should continue to exercise control and come to the doctor to see the healing progress of the reproductive organs. Postpartum mothers should control when 6 hours postpartum, 6 days postpartum, 2 weeks postpartum, and 6 weeks postpartum.
There are several ways you can do to reduce the risk of infection, namely:
keep the vagina clean, leave the stitches exposed to air for 10 minutes, change pads regularly, avoid wearing tight pants, eat foods containing fiber when the stitches are dry, start doing Kegel exercises. Breasts that secrete breast milk when not breastfeeding are normal, which is where the production of breast milk in the breast is quite a lot, therefore even though the mother is not breastfeeding please pumping ASI to prevent inflammation in the breast due to accumulation of breast milk that is not immediately removed.
May be useful. Always healthy 😊
