The onset of menstruation after childbirth

– Imagine, auntie Tan, I’m pregnant again! – My niece shared her unintentional joy.

– How pregnant? The oldest one still has no year, how can you cope with two babies? – I sighed, looking at her slim figure.

I could not believe that 5 months after giving birth, with full breastfeeding, you can become pregnant again.

– And why did not you take care after the start of menstruation? – I continued inquiries.
“And they didn’t start,” the answer came, “I just became very sick in the mornings, checked, and then read the deadline for 9 weeks already, and the heart of the crumbs beats.

– How so? – I thought, and plunged into the study of the encyclopedia for pregnant women. And why have I never read the last chapter of this manual before?

After reading the section on the process of the birth of babies, I closed the book with a sense of accomplishment. And absolutely nothing. After all, the last chapter on the health of women after childbirth was very informative.

Relying only on my own experience, I mistakenly assumed that while the main food of the baby is breast milk, the mother does not ovulate. Personally, I had a break from critical days for a whole year after giving birth, which I was extremely happy about.

But not everyone is so lucky. The recovery period is individual for each of us. Critical days are affected by many factors (and not just the cessation of breastfeeding). I will name only the main ones:

– relaxation
– nutrition
– psychological state
– chronic diseases

This means that if re-pregnancy is not yet in your plans, it is better to be careful. Well, if the intimate relationship with her spouse will be safe. This not only helps to avoid unplanned replenishment in the family, but also protects vulnerable (after childbirth) genitals from possible infections.

And one more small nuance. During postpartum discharge referred to as lochia (usually lasting from 4 to 8 weeks), it is strongly not recommended to use tampons and sanitary pads with a top absorbent net. It is preferable to choose gaskets if not so comfortable, but with a flat surface, and change them every 2-3 hours.

The same, gynecologists advise and during the first 2-3 menstrual cycles after childbirth. Until they become regular.

And when did you start these days after giving birth?
