Hematometra - what is the danger?

In any case, we recommend to remember - in the event of complications during childbirth (large fetus, multiple pregnancy, manual removal of the fetus, weak labor activity, the occurrence of bleeding hypotonic), in any case will have to be used after delivery reception Oxytocin.Its use contributes to the overall improvement of uterine contractions, such as birth defects give rise to problems hematometra.
should also be noted that should not be too heavy postnatal discharge, or completely disappear a few days after birth.In each of these cases require urgent appeal for medical advice.
Even diagnosis hematometra not need to despair and panic.After all, this state is treatable.The specialists can prescribe postpartum cleansing hematometra although it is not always a prerequisite.Most often hemometra treated with antispasmodics.Only in those cases where hemometra accompanied by inflammation, and requires assignment of appropriate antibiotics.
