Why Does Puerperal Blood Still Come Out A Lot After 2 Months More Caesarean Section?
Tonight, I want to ask, I gave birth by cesarean section on November 13, 2018 yesterday, should my puerperal blood be stopped for 40 days but until now the puerperal blood is still out a lot I am afraid there is an internal disease? Thanks
Hello, good morning..
The puerperium in women begins when the woman removes the placenta. Puerperal blood is the body's way to remove the lining of the uterus and blood after childbirth. Generally, the puerperium lasts up to six weeks after giving birth. Within 6 weeks, a woman's body will receive adaptation back to the state it was before pregnancy. Prolonged discharge of puerperal blood can be caused by:
puerperal which is directly connected with menstruation
there is still residual pregnancy tissue so the uterus cannot contract properly
there is an open birth canal tear
currently using certain hormonal birth control (such as injectable birth control), so hormones become unbalanced and result in irregular periods
Reproductive organ infections (generally this condition is accompanied by fever, vaginal discharge, and abdominal pain)
blood clotting disorders
Considering the childbirth period that you are experiencing has lasted nearly 3 months, so we strongly recommend that you consult a gynecologist. The doctor will conduct directed questions and answers about complaints, conduct physical examinations, and if needed the doctor will conduct supporting examinations such as ultrasound or blood tests. While waiting for your doctor's appointment, you can do the following suggestions:
get enough rest
avoid activities that are too heavy
consumption of healthy and nutritious foods. Increase consumption of foods high in iron such as red meat, spinach, broccoli, and nuts to repair red blood cells lost due to bleeding
drink a lot of water
That's all, hopefully it helps
