during pregnancy and during childbirth a woman's body undergoes many changes and experiencing severe stress.Restoration and start menstrutsy young mothers occurs at different times.Many doctors say that menses should begin immediately after the breast-feeding a newborn.But in real life it is not so.
This unit was formed back in the time when women did not stop breast-feeding for a long time and fed the baby for an average of 2 or even 3 years old, gave birth naturally and just did not use drugs to hormones as the contraceptive.Now this rule changed after delivery situation and resumption of the normalization of the menstrual cycle may develop in several directions.
when the first month after birth?
during pregnancy because of hormonal shifts menstruation ceases.Immediately after birth, the balance is gradually beginning to recover and it does not depend on which way to be born: a natural or by cesarean section.Menstruation is an indication that the female body is fully recovered.
very important influence on the period of onset of menstruation has breastfeeding.The hormone prolactin, which is synthesized by the pituitary gland during lactation, stimulates the formation of breast milk cells and prevents the normal flow of menstrual cycle.In most cases, the woman has no menses, if she feeds the baby in breast milk.At the time of weaning the baby is fed breast milk less, and my mother could begin menstruating.If a woman does not breastfeed started, and normal menstrual cycle becomes regular after 1 or 2 months after delivery.
addition breastfeeding at the onset of menstruation in the post-natal period, and may affect other. Factors: the quality of food and rest, the regime of the day, the presence of chronic diseases and complications during childbirth, psychological and emotional condition of the woman.
Many young mothers think that if menstruation after childbirth has not yet begun, the pregnancy will not occur.This is a serious and dangerous delusion.Even if the selection yet, this does not preclude the onset of ovulation.Menstrual flow starts 2 weeks after the release of the egg from the ovary to the uterus and during that time a woman may become pregnant.
Very often a new pregnancy occurs in the first few months after birth.It is highly undesirable because the female body is not yet fully recovered.Doctors recommend a plan for a new conception of at least 2 years after the last delivery.Before restoring sexual life in the period after childbirth should choose a reliable means of contraception.
better not to use hormonal therapy, particularly if you fed the baby in breast milk.It would be the best barrier method of contraception or intrauterine devices.Selecting funds should be carried out only by a physician.
Also pay attention to the fact that in the first week post-partum period is released from the uterus with blood clots, mucous congestions.This postpartum lochia, so the uterus is cleaned and its inner shell - the endometrium recovers.Some women take such allocation of menstruation and experience due to the fact that it started so early.If you have some doubt, discomfort or strange sensations, contact a gynecologist.
What are postpartum period?
After the occurrence of the first menstruation in the period after childbirth can be argued that the monthly cycle has begun to recover.Each woman this process proceeds in different ways.On average, the monthly cycle has restored for the first 2 or 3 months, but it can last up to 1 year.If the cycle is not normalized within 6 months from the start of the first menstrual period, it is recommended to go to the reception in the consultation to the gynecologist.Perhaps the reason is the hormonal failure or the process of inflammation in the genitals of women.
Among women there is a belief that after delivery cycle becomes more regular, disappearing symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, painful manifestations during the monthly allocation and blood become less abundant, and menstruation itself lasts less.In some cases, really what happens, but more often than not the character of menstrual changes.
before delivery If you have, for example, were heavy and painful periods, it is likely they will be such and after.There are cases when it is postpartum women first learned what PMS and painful menstruation.In general, a decrease in pain during menstruation after delivery is due svypryamleniem bend of the uterus, so that its position is more physiological.
It should also be noted that the first menstruation in the period immediately after birth can be very different from the next, and the ones that you had prior to delivery.Do not worry if it will be a very strong and painful.Only in the event that there is a strong discomfort during 2 or more cycles should sound the alarm, and go to the doctor.
No month after childbirth : possible reasons
If you have stopped breastfeeding the child, and there is still no menstruation, should be welcome to visit the gynecologist.Often, women have recently given birth there is an inflammation of the uterus or ovaries, as well as hormonal disorders.The reason for the absence of menstruation can also be re-voznikshayaberemennost.Due to the fact that the month is not difficult to identify the woman in her early pregnancy, especially if it does not manifest itself.
often cause irregular periods are tumors in the ovaries and uterus, as well as such a common disease today as endometriosis.Most often affects women with endometriosis who underwent surgery on the uterus or cesarean section.Gaps in labor and numerous injuries of the birth canal can also lead to inflammation of genitals, and endometriosis.
cause for concern may be profuse blood loss during menstruation days, the presence of a large number of clots and increased morbidity.If monthly go too profusely and their duration is more than 6 days, consult a doctor.Such symptoms may indicate the beginning of uterine bleeding, which is very dangerous.An indication of a heavy period is the frequent change of gaskets - every 2 hours.
