Monthly after cesarean

month the female body has to face serious changes to prepare for a possible pregnancy.Come cyclical metamorphosis of the endocrine, sexual, cardiovascular, nervous and other systems - occur monthly.If successful conception and pregnancy occurs these processes go on and on - for the preservation and development of the child.The body of a pregnant woman to be radically reconstructed, working in a completely new mode.

The set changes a woman's body during pregnancy, after childbirth returns reverse - reverse development.In restoring fertility and menstruation resumed.Of course, this does not guarantee a woman's ability to become pregnant or give birth, particularly in caesarean section.Such a possibility she has, but there may be some risks sometimes too serious.Therefore, the recommendation of doctors - the next pregnancy should be at least three years.Therefore, immediately after a caesarean should carefully think about contraception before the resumption of menses.But these issues have been related t

o a completely different topic, we're back to the original.

resumption of monthly schedule after cesarean

important issue becomes the resumption of menstruation after cesarean.But this question must take into account two main factors:

  • individually.Different women such terms may vary within limits.

  • Caesarean section has virtually no effect on the timing of the first menstruation after childbirth.Stepping menstruation is similar to vaginal birth.

Female body with a reversal begins to recover from the discharge of the placenta.The whole period of continuing decline and a decrease in the uterus.At this time, the uterus drops down daily by 1 cm.

Fully restored former size, location and uterine weight by about 6-8 weeks after birth, can sometimes become even smaller than it was before the birth (perhaps with an active breastfeeding).Also, "wake up" the ovaries, with a gradual reduction of their hormonal functions.

formed on the surface of the uterus wound that heals and continues to bleed.As a result, visible lochia - postnatal discharge.Termination of this period accounted for 6-8 weeks after delivery (lochia and menstruation - different phenomena) throughout the allocation period to change their nature (including odor, color, intensity).More about the differences and characteristics of lochia we gave information in the article "Menstruation after childbirth" and "Discharge after childbirth."

After discontinuation of lochia can talk about restoration doberemennogo condition of the female body.Can start at this time, and the usual monthly, although quite often the first cycle is anovulatory after birth - no ovulation, because of what is impossible and pregnancy.

Factors monthly beginning after cesarean

All women's monthly periods beginning after cesarean differ - may depend on many factors:

  • woman's age.

  • Lifestyle.

  • during pregnancy.

  • Power.

  • physiological characteristics of the organism.

  • Relaxation.

  • general condition of the woman.

  • lactation.

Most at the beginning of last month affects factor - breast breastfeeding.The woman's body during lactation is an active production of the hormone prolactin to normal production of breast milk.But it is suppressed in the follicles of hormonal activity, respectively, ovaries "awaken" - does not follow maturation oocytes for fertilization, which leads to a lack of menses.But this does not indicate that this situation will continue throughout the time of breastfeeding.Just generally retained a close relationship between lactation and the menstrual cycle.

Gynecologists note the following laws:

Provided active breastfeeding situations when menstruation does not occur only in a few months, but longer than a year.Often occurs first month after the introduction of the first C-feeding.

first menstruation at an average mixed feeding occurs after 3-4 months after a caesarean section.If you are not going breastfeeding monthly advance can do in the first month on the schedule - after 5-8 weeks after birth.But they come in such a case no later than 2-3 months.

If these are not complied with no frame, no need to be premature to talk about their pathologies.Yet for the first time to go to the gynecologist should be no later than 2-3 months after delivery.If menstruation does not come, you want to access to a doctor.What is important is to be examined by a gynecologist and in cases where the regular monthly will not be adjusted after half a year of renewal.Until then, these variations in menstrual cyclicity may be considered normal.

menstrual cycle with the "aligned" for many women: becoming regular, sometimes reaching to the "ideal", with a reduction of menstrual pain or even with their absence.

Gynecologists usually much of a difference in the timing of the onset of menstruation after cesarean section is not fixed, but is still recovering from surgery can be delayed rather, it will lead to what will come later periods.Characterized by a long involution for women who do not give birth for the first time or in a weakened state, at birth for the first time over the age of 30.A similar situation may be at birth with pathologies or disorders.To promote non-compliance issue could delay the recommended postpartum mode or a number of other reasons.There comes a month after cesarean later in the case of infections and inflammations.The rapid recovery of the uterus, and may also interfere with the seam.

In identifying violations should consult a doctor.The planned appeal to the gynecologist is recommended to speed up in the following situations:

  • Monthly not resumed at 3 months postpartum, if not breastfeeding.

  • too long after the resumption of menses (6 days) or, on the contrary, very little last 1-2 days.

  • Scarce or too heavy menstrual flow (when the pad is not enough for 4-5 hours).

  • sharp unpleasant odor of menses.

  • emergence of long-spotting at the beginning or end of menstruation.

  • irregular menstruation schedule six months after renewed postpartum menstruation.

important to consider that quickly and easily postpartum recovery will contribute to proper rest, nutrition, sleep, good emotional atmosphere.If possible, provide for themselves such conditions to avoid unwanted complications and unpleasant surprises.
