It has been half a year since she gave birth to her baby. Little C’s menstruation hasn’t come, which worries her. It’s said that the earlier the postpartum menstruation comes, the better the recovery of the uterus and ovary will be! But it’s been half a year, and the menstruation has disappeared. Does it mean that her body is recovering badly?
With such questions, little c mother came to the hospital. Fortunately, the doctor’s explanation, let her heart stone finally fell to the ground——
When to recover depends entirely on the individual
Postpartum menstruation comes early or late, often and whether the mother breastfeeding, the length of breastfeeding time, as well as age and other factors.
Generally speaking, due to the influence of prolactin secretion, the time of amenorrhea of breast-feeding mothers may be as long as half a year, a year or even longer. But this is not absolute, there are a few pure breast milk mothers, within six months on the resumption of menstruation.
For mothers who do not breastfeed, about 4-6 weeks after delivery, ovarian function will begin to form new follicles. With the growth, development and maturation of follicles, menstruation will visit the door about 2 weeks after ovulation.
Therefore, postpartum menstruation when to recover, we can not judge whether the uterus, ovaries are restored to good standard.
3 months have not come menstruation, need to cause attention
Generally speaking, the mother in 1-2 months after weaning, menstruation will return to normal. But if the weaning 3 months, menstruation or not to report, may be the following two cases——
The recovery of uterus and ovary is not good, so it is necessary to see a doctor in time to investigate the cause.
The mother “won the prize” during the first ovulation period after childbirth and was pregnant again.
These two situations are not what mothers want, but if they happen, they can only face them positively.
3. Is it normal to have too little or too much menstruation for the first time after delivery?
Normal women’s menstrual blood volume is generally 50 ~ 80ml, with the largest amount of bleeding on the 2nd-3rd day of menstruation.
Many mothers will be tired, lack of rest, anemia and other reasons, resulting in menorrhagia. This kind of situation generally does not need to worry excessively, usually after the adjustment work and rest, diet, can obtain the quite good improvement. But if for three months (or more), the amount of menstruation has been very small, it is necessary to seek medical advice in time to find out the cause.
Some mothers also find that their first menstruation is particularly large, which may be related to the changes of hormone levels in the body after delivery and the incomplete recovery of ovarian function. Generally speaking, if menstruation does not exceed 7 days, there is no need to worry too much.
But if the amount of bleeding is particularly large, and more than 7 days, it is necessary to seek the help of the doctor in time! Postpartum menorrhagia, may also be associated with uterine fibroids, uterine polyps and other gynecological diseases, or other systemic diseases, need to combine medical means for investigation.
Generally speaking, the situation like little c-ma is mostly normal, and there is no need to worry too much. Hope that all mothers can use a relaxed attitude to welcome the return of postpartum menstruation.
