Yesterday, a netizen mother was very embarrassed to leave a message in the background, postpartum “below” loose how to do? Postpartum we will have a variety of “ashamed to open the teeth” problem, although postpartum vaginal relaxation is common, but also should arouse our attention.
What causes postpartum vaginal relaxation?
In fact, there are many reasons for postpartum vaginal relaxation, such as fetal oversize (head is too big) caused by childbirth injury, mid-term induced labor, several childbirth, blind weight loss, pay no attention to nutrition and then lead to poor pelvic muscle recovery and so on. There are several reasons why we should pay special attention to this.
1. Uterine prolapse
The uterus is a magic organ. From pregnancy to production, its volume can be doubled by two hundred times. During pregnancy, the ligaments that support the uterus are stretched excessively, sometimes even torn apart, and the uterus prolapses. The cause of female uterine prolapse is mainly due to the excessive relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles during pregnancy and postpartum.
In daily life, some common behaviors can also lead to postpartum uterine prolapse. For example, the use of corset tape, long squatting, emergency delivery and delayed labor.
2, rectus abdominis separation
Generally speaking, women’s rectus abdominis is in the middle of the abdomen, whether it is natural delivery or caesarean section, in women after childbirth, more than half of the women’s rectus abdominis will be separated very wide, and some maternal even after sitting in the month, still can not recover. Experts said that the reason for the separation of rectus abdominis in women is due to uterine expansion during pregnancy, resulting in rupture of rectus abdominis muscle fiber caused by postpartum abdominal muscle relaxation, abdominal pressure weakening.
3. Fetal birth is too large.
Natural delivery of the mother, because the fetus is delivered through the vagina, generally born babies with a head diameter of about 10 cm, that is, vaginal delivery to 10 cm (normal vaginal diameter is 2, 5 cm), after the birth of the child’s squeeze, vaginal dilatation is obvious, muscle and hymen scars are completely destroyed, obvious elasticity Drop.
4, cesarean section can also cause vaginal relaxation.
But although the vagina of the mother who delivers a fetus from the vagina has changed, vaginal relaxation may occur to varying degrees. But that doesn’t mean natural delivery is the culprit for vaginal laxity, because the muscles and ligaments in the pelvic cavity are fully extended to prepare the birth canal for the baby. Therefore, even if the cesarean section mothers, their vagina will also relax.
Postpartum vaginal rehabilitation exercise
So, is it a terrible thing to feel vaginal relaxation after childbirth? Is there any remedy? Some postpartum vaginal relaxation exercises can help your body recover. Let’s see -?
1. “Interrupt micturition” training: in the process of urination, consciously hold the urine for a few seconds, interrupt micturition, stop for a moment and then continue to micturate. So repeated, after a period of training, can improve the tension around the vagina muscles.
2, raise the anus movement: when having the intention, hold the stool and do the anus movement. Regular repetition can improve pelvic muscles well.
3. Contraction movement: lying on one’s back or on one’s side, breathing deeply while tightening the muscles around the vagina and the anus. At the same time, tighten up for 3 seconds, then slowly relax, breathe out, and do about 5 times at a time.
In addition, in daily life, we can do more “small movements” to restore:
The new mother lies flat on the bed with her feet open as wide as her shoulders; bends her knees so that her calves are vertical and her hips are raised as high as possible. At this point, pull the separated knees together for three seconds, then slowly separate the knees and gently lower the hips for 10 times.
Stand with your legs slightly apart, contracting the buttock muscles on both sides to force them against each other, forming the thighs close, the knees turn outwards, and then contracting the sphincter to lift the vagina upwards.
> > Lie flat on the bed (under the body can be covered with a blanket), take a deep breath with the nose, then the abdomen will slowly rise, slowly exhale, relax abdominal muscles, can do 5-10 times.
When exercising, walking or standing, consciously tighten the muscles of the inner thigh and perineum, then relax and repeat the exercises.
[Summary] Vagina itself has a certain repair function, postpartum dilatation can be restored after 3 months. But after all, the muscles in the vagina are damaged by compression and tear, so the recovery of vaginal elasticity takes longer. Postpartum mothers can strengthen their resilience through some exercises to promote vaginal tighten.
