Disease 1: Postpartum arthralgia
If pregnant women engage in housework too early or too much, hold their children too long or touch cold water after delivery, they will overburden the joints, tendons and ligaments, cause wrist and finger joint pain, and will not heal for a long time. The heel has a strong fat pad, which can cushion the pressure of body weight and the vibration of walking. However, during the “puerperium” period, due to reduced activity, or even rarely get out of bed to walk, resulting in the heel fat pad disuse degradation and become weak. When the puerpera gets out of bed after full moon, the weak heel fat pad will greatly weaken its cushioning effect on weight support and vibration during exercise. The fat pad will also cause hyperemia, edema and other non-specific inflammation, resulting in heel pain.
The way to prevent hand and joint pain is: during puerperium, the puerpera should pay attention to rest and not do too much housework. To reduce the burden on fingers and wrists, avoid premature contact with cold water.
Disease 2: Postpartum genital infection
In puerperium, maternal disease resistance is poor, and the wounds caused by vagina and uterus due to childbirth have not healed. Bacteria are easy to invade, and there are different degrees of congestion and edema in the external mouth of vagina after childbirth, which can easily cause laceration. Therefore, women in puerperium are prone to vulvitis, vaginitis, endometritis, pelvic inflammation, uterine bleeding, perineal laceration and so on after sexual intercourse. Serious cases can also cause sepsis, hemorrhagic shock and endanger life.
The methods to prevent genital infection are: avoid cohabitation during the puerperium, avoid sexual intercourse from 3 months before delivery to 2 months after delivery, keep the whole body, especially the lower body clean and hygienic, and strengthen nutrition, rest and resistance before delivery.
Warm tips of Prunus fortunei: precautions for postpartum prevention of reproductive organ infections
Note 1: Pay attention to urine and urine
After delivery, if you want to defecate, you should go to defecate immediately, don’t bear it and don’t exert too much. When defecating, apply a clean sanitary pad to the sutured area. It is normal to discharge more urine on the first day of postpartum. When urinating at first, the wound will be painful. If there is a suture in the local area, use warm water to wash the local area, so that when urine is discharged, the skin will not feel tingling.
Note 2: Do not use built-in sliver after delivery
Vaginal bleeding occurs within two to six weeks after delivery, known as lochia. At first, there are many bright red secretions, which will decrease in a few days and gradually become brown. This secretion usually lasts until the first menstrual period after delivery.
Maternal use of health pads to absorb the outflow of secretions, and pay attention to cleaning the vulva, do not use built-in tampons, in order to avoid infection.
