Problems possible after birth
often postpartum women have problems, for which they do not pay enough attention.Meanwhile, everything that happens to a woman after childbirth is extremely important that any pain and discomfort have their reasons, and must be timely and properly resolved.
problems postpartum urinary
unlikely that a young mother complains about the lack of urgency to urinate; she just does not notice that goes to the toilet only twice a day.The reason is that during delivery the bladder and urethra, and it is also suitable to nerve endings under considerable squeezing.This leads to the fact that the bladder does not respond to the usual filling reflex - urge to urinate.
In turn, filled bladder prevents the normal reduction of postpartum uterine and is a risk factor for the emergence of infectious and inflammatory complications in the uterus, in addition, it promotes the development of urinary tract inflammation (bladder and urethra).To avoid such troubles, it is necessary to forcethe bladder to work - namely, to go to urinate every 2-3 hours.
Soreness when urinating in the seams, imposed on the wall of the vagina, in the perineum: urine irritate the wound, and a trip to the toilet it is accompanied by a burning sensation in the weld area.This problem can occur immediately after birth and trouble in the first 2-3 days.To solve it, you can pee in the shower or under the tap.The inability to urinate may occur due to the fear of pain.To stimulate urination can turn on the water: the sound of falling water reflexively relaxes the sphincter of the bladder.
painful urination accompanied by pain in the bladder, frequent urging to urinate, with the amount of urine is negligible.This phenomenon usually occurs a few days after birth, before urination was painless.These symptoms are caused by inflammation of the mucosa of the urethra (urethritis) and bladder (cystitis).
Frequent occurrence of cystitis after birth due to several factors: it is the squeezing of the urinary tract, and in violation of their circulation, and a large number of manipulations in the perineum during childbirth, and especially hormonal and immune systems.All this leads to that causing inflammation conditionally pathogenic organisms inhabiting always in the urinary tract, in the crotch area.
If a woman during pregnancy had any genital tract infections (ureaplasmosis, chlamydia, etc.) and they were not treated, then the risk of cystitis is especially great.When complaints must always consult a doctor.For the treatment of cystitis are traditionally used antibiotics.The doctor will select a drug, the use of which does not interfere with breastfeeding.If you ignore the symptoms of the infection may rise above - the ureter to the kidney, then it is likely the occurrence of inflammation in the kidney - pyelonephritis, which requires long-term, often hospital treatment.
Incontinence, her involuntary separation when laughing, sneezing can occur due to excessive stretching of the perineum muscle weakness.If such symptoms are concerned in the first weeks after birth, you need to say about this doctor (obstetrician-gynecologist).Probably, he will recommend to perform daily exercises for the pelvic floor muscles, all the problems associated with urinary incontinence, with regular exercises must pass for 3 months.If after this time, in spite of the regular classes, the problem persists, further treatment tactics determines the doctor.
problems after birth bowel
Constipation - another common problem, which is also triggered by compression of the rectum during childbirth, and changes in hormonal levels after childbirth.Constipation during pregnancy, postpartum and are further compounded by the woman concerned for 3-5 weeks and then usually pass on their own (if they were not peculiar to this woman at all).
During the first days after birth, as a rule, spontaneous chair is extremely rare.This is due to the fact that before birth a woman put a cleansing enema.If there is no chair for 2-3 hours, then crowded "lazy" bowels causes discomfort, interferes with the right of uterine contractions.To prevent the occurrence of constipation and they should be treated primarily with a special diet.
woman should include in your diet foods rich in fiber: prunes, beets, wholemeal bread, bran.Contribute to activate bowel exercise and drink enough (recall that prior to the arrival of the amount of milk consumed the liquid should not exceed 800 ml and 1-2 days after the arrival of milk should drink 2-2.5 liters of liquid).To prevent constipation as possible before each meal to take 1 tspvegetable oil.
If the problem of constipation has proved, once you can use glycerin candle, other laxatives, even the most "innocent", and indeed all other medications should not be used on their own without a doctor's prescription.
fear of straining arises due to the presence of seams at the crotch.Women seem that straining the seams will disperse, but it is not.If you have stitches in the perineum, women were allowed to sit on the toilet in the delivery day.Defecation is safe for joints, as the wound edges securely fastened suture.To chair was soft, women who have seams on the perineum, after childbirth recommend a diet that is used for constipation.In the first days after birth is better to prefer liquid dishes - you can eat soup, liquid milk porridge, whole grain bread.
Hemorrhoids - varicose veins of the rectum - it may first appear during childbirth.Predisposing factor in this case is a significant increase in intra-abdominal pressure during this period.In the case of hemorrhoids in the anal area there are entities that can be painless, but often - painful, bleeding and itching.
for hemorrhoid treatment is necessary to comply with the same diet as constipation.The chair should be soft, this is achieved by the use of large amounts of vegetables, fruit, and vegetable oil.Necessarily it is necessary to wash after each visit to the toilet.Special hemorrhoidal suppositories may be used only after consultation with your doctor: many of them contain powerful drugs that penetrate into breast milk and be harmful to the child.
