Many mothers are concerned about how long their menstruation lasts after a caesarean section, but they are not too shy to ask others. Just like a girl waiting for her menarche, this “first time” is both anticipatory and worrying. How long does it take to recover her menstruation after delivery? Let’s answer the doubts in her heart.
I. Normal Retide Time
The new mother’s menstrual recovery time is sooner or later, early can come after the full moon menstruation, late to the baby’s 1-year-old before recovery. From a medical point of view, according to the histological morphology of the endometrium, it is speculated that the ovaries may ovulate as early as 33-42 days after delivery. In addition, corpus luteum can also be observed after ovulation at 6 weeks postpartum.
If the new mother is not breast-fed, menstruation usually comes within 6 to 8 weeks after delivery. Research data show that 40% of new mothers who do not breast-feed resume ovulation at 6 weeks postpartum, and only 35% of new mothers who do not resume ovulation and menstruation at 8-12 weeks postpartum. About 25% of new breast-feeding mothers resume ovulation and menstruation 12 weeks after delivery. Most new breast-feeding mothers usually do not fully resume ovulation until 18 weeks.
The so-called postpartum amenorrhea occurs when prolactin levels remain high. Usually it is called hyperprolactinemia. Breastfeeding new mothers do not have menstruation because breastfeeding can increase the level of prolactin in the blood, reduce or stop the secretion of gonadotropin in the hypothalamus, and cause no ovulation cycle can not ovulate.
The new mothers who breast-fed their babies had a late recovery of ovulation and menstruation, and some had to come to their menstruation after one year. Most people’s first menstruation is more than usual, and the second menstruation is restored. These are normal phenomena, so there is no need for treatment.
TIPs: When menstruation comes, breast-feeding mothers tend to have less milk, slightly different qualities of protein and fat, higher protein content and lower fat content. This kind of milk can sometimes cause indigestion symptoms in babies, but this is a temporary phenomenon, after menstruation, it will return to normal. Therefore, whether in or after menstruation, the new mother does not have to stop feeding.
