Before the birth of a child, the monthly menstruation is not to let you love and hate; October pregnancy, almost forgotten this relative, but after the birth of a child, menstruation and on time to come to the door!?
Apart from such a long period of menstruation, are you ready to welcome it? Today, let’s talk about postpartum menstruation.
When does postpartum menstruation come to normal?
The recovery of postpartum menstruation varies according to the physical condition of each mother. Mothers who have not yet come to menstruation need not worry.
1. Generally speaking, mothers without breastfeeding resume menstruation faster, about 6-8 weeks later.
2. Breast-feeding mothers have late first menstruation, usually 4-6 months after delivery, or even more than a year. Because lactating mothers have a large number of prolactin production, thus inhibiting the secretion of the pituitary gland, follicle development will be restricted, can not become mature eggs, there will be delayed menstruation phenomenon, which is normal.
What is the difference between postpartum menstruation and pre pregnancy?
Postpartum physical recovery is a gradual process, so the first few vacations, compared with pregnant will be different. Some mothers tend to be more numerous, while others are less than before.
1. The amount of menstruation is very high.
Most mothers will experience this. In addition to the amount of time more than before, the time will be longer, the previous 6 days may be 7 or 8 days to clean. Some mothers will also suffer from dull pain in the lower abdomen. These are all normal. However, if the menstrual period is too long, the menstrual volume will not decrease but increase.
2. The amount of menstruation is very small.
It’s hard to bring a baby, but some mothers may have fewer menstrual cycles because of weakness, anemia, liver disease, diabetes and other diseases, or postpartum hemorrhage, or even overwork. In this case, it is recommended that mothers rest more, adjust the body through diet, observe several menstrual conditions, decide whether to see a doctor.
Postpartum menstruation how to recuperate?
Menstruation can reflect the mother’s physical condition, when the menstrual abnormalities, must be timely conditioning, restore normal physical function. The days of menstruation are also a good time for conditioning, and the following aspects should be noticed.
1, avoid overwork.
It’s not easy to take care of a baby, sleeping during the day, getting up at night, and all kinds of emergencies. This easily leads to mother’s lack of sleep and mental state, which leads to endocrine disorders in the long run. Overwork can affect the amount and cycle of menstruation, which requires family help to take care of the baby, reducing the burden on the mother. During the day, when the baby sleeps, the mother makes up for the sleep quickly, and lets the father help to sleep at night, which can also enhance the affection between parents and children.
2, light diet
Postpartum mothers need to enrich their blood and eat foods rich in protein and iron. Menstrual period eat more light food, lactating mothers can not eat spicy stimulating food, on the one hand, dysmenorrhea will intensify, and stimulate uterine contraction to increase menstrual volume. On the other hand, it will affect the quality of milk.
3, don’t catch cold.
Postpartum menstruation, many mothers will feel a little cold, this time to add clothes in time to avoid a cold. Do not stay in the air-conditioned room for a long time, and increase the temperature at the right time to avoid too low temperature.
4, avoid strenuous exercise.
Proper exercise can help with the discharge of lochia and the recovery of the uterus. Mothers can do soothing exercises such as yoga and aerobics. As for running and playing, these strenuous exercises should be avoided as far as possible. It should be noted that exercise should also be gradual and effective.
5, changing sanitary napkins frequently.
After the first few menstruation, in personal hygiene to change more frequently sanitary towel, because the resistance of this period is relatively weak, if not replaced in time, easy to cause infection, causing gynecological diseases.
I believe many mothers have had trouble with postpartum menstruation. Each person’s physique is different and should be treated according to personal circumstances. But there is no need to worry too much, some abnormal situation is only a normal process of change, as long as maintain a pleasant mood, reasonable adjustment, I believe that this barrier can be smoothly crossed.
