Treating and Managing Postpartum Hemorrhage

Gynaecologist, Faridabad
Treating and Managing Postpartum Hemorrhage

An expecting mother runs the risk of suffering from a range of complications during and after pregnancy. You were very wrong to think childbirth is about antenatal care and once the baby is born, the mother is safe from danger. Both C- Sections and vaginal deliveries take into account the hovering threat of impediments. Sudden problems like perineal lacerations, amniotic cavity issues, umbilical cord issues, abnormal fetal heart rate, and stalled labor might be experienced during giving birth to a child. Childbirth is again followed by another set of medical conditions. Postpartum Hemorrhage is one such condition that, if left unattended, can turn out to be fatal.

Postpartum Hemorrhage: An overview

Patients suffering from Postpartum Hemorrhage are subjected to loss of more than 500 mL of blood after delivery. In certain rare cases, women have been reported with a loss of more than 1000 mL of blood. Morbidity statistics say postpartum hemorrhage is the most common trigger to maternal morbidity in developed countries. Even after ensuring the efficacy of preventive measures to prevalent risk factors, lapses do exist. A loss of more than 1000 mL of blood can severely endanger your health. It may lead to hemodynamic instability. Treatment of Postpartum Hemorrhage should systematically concentrate on two important things; firstly, diagnosis and management of root causes resulting in a hemorrhage and secondly, dealing with hypovolemic shock along with resuscitation of obstetric hemorrhage. You can also take the package for Living Healthy - Woman.

Preventive Measures:

An exigency situation with regard to postpartum hemorrhage can be avoided or controlled in the following ways:

  1. Detecting signs of acute anemia and thus rectifying the condition before delivery.
  2. Routine episiotomy should be done away with.
  3. The doctor should inquire of the mother's opinion on blood transfusions.
  4. There should be frequent examinations of the person's vaginal flow and vital signs to check for slow and steady bleeding.

The risk of retained placenta in the third stage of labor can increase chances of postpartum hemorrhage. Active management on part of the hospital can take care of this. Regulated cord traction, early cord clamping and cutting and most basically use of a uterotonic drug soon after the delivery of the anterior shoulder can prevent a prolonged third stage, thus hindering a hemorrhage from occurring.

Oxytocin is an advisable drug to prevent the chances of a hemorrhage. Pregnant women may or may not give their consent to its use. It has very few side- effects. Prophylactic administration of this drug is known to reduce rates of postpartum hemorrhage by forty percent.

Management: Excessive blood loss after childbirth can be tackled through hysterectomy. Women who wish to remain fertile can go in for B- lynch uterine compression sutures, artery litigations, uterine packing or tamponade procedures.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized gynaecologist and ask a free question.

Is it necessary for a 16 year old to have checkup if she has suspected symptoms of pcod.

Yes why not, if not a physical or internal examination, atleast an ultrasound and blood tests should certainly be done, apart from thyroid to rule out PCOd.

Gynaecologist, Delhi
If you have regular cycles of 28 - 30 days have sexual contact with your husband from day 12- day 18 of your cycle. The day you get your cycle is taken as day 1. Every alternate day should do. Just get one semen analysis done for your husband. Relax n don't worry.

My friend is 43 years old, she is suffering from uterus fibroid, one is 10.1 , 10.1 and second is 4.1 , 4.1 cm. She does not want surgery. Is there any alt. Medicine option to treat fibroid in ayurveda or homeopathy. If yes pls tell. She has very less iron store and is anemic and less energetic.

Homeopath, Ghaziabad
There is treatment for fibroid in homoeopathy but complete cure depends upon how early you start treatment. As the size increases chances of successful treatment decreases. Fibroid is quite big, but there is hope, treatment will be long.

We did foreplay (including fingering) followed by rubbing our vestigial organ. Penis was not in. But now after 6 hours she had a bit of bleeding (in case of hymen being broken) It's her period date in next 2 days, do we need an I-PILL. And if she have normal periods in the next 2 days, is it still required to have a PILL.

Ipill is not needed if there has been no penis insertion, however wait for a couple of days ,she should get her periods, If she misses her periods, take a Urine pregnancy test, as you might have transferred some semen while rubbing.

Irregular,painful periods are normal in adoloscents. If periods are scanty,irregular,painful associated with weight gain,mood swings consult a gynecologist who will ask for USG abdomen,blood tests.This may be a case of PCOD.

I am a new married person and I want to know when there is more chance and less chance to become pregnant for a woman in a month.

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Maximum chance is mid-cycle if you have regular 28-30 days cycles. Minimum is during your periods. However I would advice you to use a regular contraception if you want to avoid an unwanted pregnancy.

Can implantation bleeding occur after you get your period after eating emergency contraception.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FCPS, DGO, Diploma of the Faculty of Family Planning (DFFP)

Eating emergency contraception prevents implantation. However there is nothing 100 % in life so that small chance of failure should be kept in mind.

I had intercourse from day 14-20 of my menstrual cycle. Whether is it possible for me to attain pregnancy? How much of chance is there? Can I do long travel in between before result?

Graduate of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (GAMS)
Ayurveda, Delhi
Pregnancy is technically only possible during the five days before ovulation through to the day of ovulation. Day one is the first day of the menstrual period and the last day is the day before the next period begins. Ovulation happens about two weeks before the next expected period. So if your average menstrual cycle is 28 days, you ovulate around day 14. If a woman has sex six or more days before she ovulates, the chance she will get pregnant is virtually zero. For those women who are not aware of, when they ovulate, sexual intercourse is recommended every 2 to 3 days to help optimize their chance of conceiving. Intercourse from day 14-20 is the right time for conceiving. Light distant travelling has no problems. All the Best.
