During the whole period of pregnancy mum to be especially careful and responsible to think about your body to nine months, to provide for a new man perfect conditions and all the necessary resources - it was in my mother's tummy baby nourished and developed, needing comfort andcare, even in this period.In the woman's uterus is the placenta, which is the ideal "house" for a fetus.The two bodies are closely intertwined blood vessels, contributing to the emergence and further development of a completely new life.During pregnancy, certain changes come fully to all of the woman's body, the main task - childbearing with ideal conditions and with minimal risk.
And everything slowly comes to the long-awaited birth - the appearance of a baby into the world.At this time there is a detachment of "house-placenta" baby from the uterus, accompanied by rupture of blood vessels previously intertwined.Now the womb - an open bleeding wound for some time.There is bringing out not only the blood from torn blood vessels,
Every woman knows that "menstruation" after giving birth is sure to be, but the question of the duration.Reply you can simply - will continue until the time of the healing of the uterus.For the duration of this process is influenced by many factors, among which is the right course of pregnancy.But there are certain rules with disabilities - some of them are normal, others are invalid.
Norma discharge after birth, the possible deviations
When asked about the duration of discharge after childbirth doctor will tell - 6-8 weeks.Of course, there are certain rules, but also possible deviations sometimes highlight stop at the fifth week, sometimes on the 9th.But far more important timing themselves become the character selection.During the first 2-3 days normally be bloody, bright red discharge with mucus and clots, then - abundant.There is a change in color with time and amount of lochia - become progressively brown, transparent, 5-6 week to be scarce.
Undoubtedly, each of us the body is strictly individual, and therefore the pregnancy passes at women in different ways, varying the duration of discharge.Consider the main reason to start to worry and consult a doctor:
Too rapid evolution ceased (may be a sign of delays in lochia uterine cavity, in some cases, certain complications are possible - hematometra or infection).
no discoloration occurs precipitates remain during the entire period "too blood."This situation may be a sign of problems with blood clotting.
bad smell lochia (intrauterine infection).
resumption of bloody discharge color, even though they have turned brown and transparent.The situation may indicate intrauterine bleeding.
Factors affecting the duration of the discharge after delivery
sustained release after cesarean long as it takes to heal more wounds in the womb - because of the cut needed for the delivery of the baby.After such "artificial" birth saved slight contraction of the uterus, but sometimes it takes oxytocin and after natural childbirth - a hormone to increase uterine contractions.Recovery is faster for women, breastfeeding.Forcing a child to the breast leads to a more intensive development of oxytocin.When feeding may increase the discomfort and pain in the abdomen, it increases the intensity of the selection - natural process of proving good uterine contractions, so selection will soon no longer be bothered.
Self help restore:
If a child asks, should breastfeed.
Most lie on his stomach.
be on time to empty the bladder.
Sex is necessary to postpone.
and careful personal hygiene.Prior to the complete cessation of postpartum discharge can only shower after every trip to the toilet need to be washed away, as recommended during the first days after delivery of the diaper, not the pad.For six months after delivery at all should forget about using tampons.
These guidelines do not allow to reduce the time allocation after childbirth (about a month), but it can help a woman avoid various complications.
