Many mothers will have bleeding in the stool after childbirth, and find their own stool with bloodshot, and even the phenomenon of blood dripping. In this regard, many mothers expressed their worries, and there would be no problem, right?
Postpartum stool hemorrhage is a common complication. Postpartum fecal bleeding is mainly due to the mother’s “more food and less movement” during pregnancy; during childbirth, due to abdominal muscle relaxation and large pelvic pressure, it is easy to cause hemorrhoids, anal fissure and other conditions, and then lead to postpartum fecal bleeding.
Postpartum hematochezia not only brings inconvenience to daily life, but also may hide health crisis. Therefore, mother should check and treat in time if she finds this situation. These three causes of postpartum hematochezia can be treated according to the specific situation.
1. Small amount of exercise
Many mothers lie in bed for a long time after childbirth, with little exercise, so it is easy to slow down the speed of intestinal peristalsis. At the same time, because of the abdominal wall expansion during pregnancy, postpartum abdominal wall relaxation and weakness, abdominal pressure reduction, so that intestinal substances easily stagnate in the intestinal cavity. When forced defecation, it is easy to cause blood in the stool. Therefore, pregnant and postpartum mothers should pay attention to appropriate exercise.
On weekdays, lying in women should not sit for long. They can often do some lifting and staring exercises to strengthen the contraction of anal sphincter and speed up the local blood circulation of the body. If necessary, you can also do abdominal massage, which is conducive to increase the opportunity of intestinal peristalsis, promote digestion, and reduce the bleeding caused by postpartum constipation.
2. Postpartum constipation
In order to recover more quickly or under the pressure of their elders, many mothers will eat a lot of fine food, and rarely eat vegetables, fruits and other fiber rich food. Even the amount of drinking water may be reduced when the soup water does not stop. This will inevitably lead to constipation symptoms, induced anal fissure, resulting in postpartum hematochezia. Therefore, mother must pay attention to balanced diet, eat more fruits and vegetables, eat more coarse grains rich in dietary fiber, easy to eat and nutrition.
The mother should form the habit of defecating every day, shorten the interval time, so as to avoid excessive accumulation and absorption of excessive water, which may cause constipation. In addition, the mother can also eat some probiotic powder for pregnant women, which is helpful to relieve constipation symptoms and relieve the condition of blood in defecation.
In the middle and later period of pregnancy, the larger the fetus is, the larger the uterus will be. If there is insufficient blood supply, the blood in the internal vein of the uterus will not flow smoothly, and hemorrhoids will easily form.
Hemorrhoids is the most common cause of postpartum hematochezia. The hematochezia caused by this reason mainly occurs in the process of defecation or after defecation. Therefore, pregnant mothers should pay attention to the moderate weight gain, not too fat.
In addition to weight control, also pay attention to keep the anus clean, after each defecation can be gently scrubbed with warm water.
4. Anal fissure
Many mothers in childbirth, due to excessive force, resulting in perineum and even anal position tear, pregnancy pain and bleeding, resulting in anal fissure. The mother with anal fissure is easy to bleed in defecation, accompanied by anal pain, with less bleeding or only blood on toilet paper, bright red color, often accompanied by constipation.
Although postpartum fecal bleeding is a common postpartum complication, mother should not neglect it. She must be treated as soon as possible and return her own healthy body.
