Post Cesarean Wound Infection - How It Can be Prevented?

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Agra
Post Cesarean Wound Infection - How It Can be Prevented?

Having a baby is nothing less than a dream come true, but it comes with its own share of problems for new mothers. A lot of women today are opting for a C-section, or a Cesarean surgery to deliver their babies. While it is safe for most, at times certain complications can arise as a result of the operation.

As if life for mothers wasn’t tough already, post Cesarean wound infection is another concern some new mothers have to face. It usually occurs due to a bacterial infection in the area where the incision was made during surgery. If you have recently had a C-section, look out for signs in the first couple of weeks such as fever (100.5ºF to 103ºF), wound sensitivity and pain in the lower abdomen area. Other symptoms include swelling at the incision point or in the legs, discharge from the wound, smelly vaginal discharges or blood clots and difficulty in passing urine. If you notice any of these signs, act fast and consult your gynaecologist at the earliest, to avoid complications from the infection.

Why does it happen?
There can be various reasons that an infection happens, just like on any other part of the body where a wound is exposed. Generally, it is more prevalent among obese or overweight women or those taking any form of steroids. Other causes include, an incision closed with staples or nylon sutures, in cases of an emergency C-section, or from an infection of the amniotic sac.

Types and Treatment
C-section wound infections are of two types that is Cellulitis or wound abscess and thrush.

  1. Cellulitis and wound abscesses are caused by bacteria and are treated with antibiotics. If you’re in the hospital, you will be given the antibiotics intravenously, but if not, they can be taken orally as well. In case of abscesses, the pus is first drained out and smeared with antiseptic before being covered with gauze, after which the wound will heal on its own.
  2. Thrush is caused by a fungal infection and is normally seen in women taking steroids or in those who have a weak immune system. Anti-fungal drugs are provided to combat the issue.

How can it be prevented?
Here are some things new moms can do to prevent the C-section wound from getting infected:

  1. Regular follow-up visits with your obstetrician
  2. Practising good hygiene and healing
  3. Stay hydrated and drink plenty of fluids
  4. Avoiding any strenuous exercises that may put pressure on the abdomen area and stitches
  5. Resting as much as possible

Remember, even if you do develop an infection, it can be treated if addressed in time. New mothers need to take extra care of themselves, as a healthy mom, makes a happy mom!

I am 23 years old female I got stretch marks on my stomach and my skin becoming black after delivery. To get rid for those what should I do? And I want some suggestions for weight loss!

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
A balanced diet is very essential for maintaining healthy skin. Avoid excessive intake of junk and proprietary foods. Include fruits, raw vegetables and fresh vegetable juices in your diet. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Avoid very oily, spicy and sugary foods. Drinking good amount of water and fluids is a must to help flush out toxins from the body. Drinking lemon water in the mornings can help clear the digestive system and avoid constipation. Avoid crash diets or diets that call for avoiding any particular food groups totally. Sleep well and exercise regularly. Applying rose water or neem honey can help reduce darkness of skin. Maintain hygiene. Eat small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, try to first follow this seemingly simple tips.

Health Tip

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
Health Tip
Excessive masturbation can cause the hair follicles to die and increase early onset male baldness.
 
During stressed and exhausted states, the body secretes an abnormally high amount of glucocorticoids, cortisol, and dht. Dht is a hormone needed to regulate sex drive and hair growth. When the body fails to produce the hormone, early baldness can ensue. Of course in some cases early male-pattern baldness is based on genetics.
 
The body can however lose dht because of excessive masturbation. Individuals who masturbate often see a reduction of dht, as well as an increase chance of premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. Men looking to proliferate the production of dht should refrain from masturbating and look to take the homoepathic treatment to help restore hair and stop current hair loss.

If this bleeding is heavy for 3 days then you need to take treatment. If this thing is happening regularly then you can start 3 months course of oc pills like novelon or femilon to correct the problem. If this has happened once or twice it can occur with hormonal imbalance or stress which does not need any treatment.

Shukra Dhatu : The Ayurvedic View of Sexual Health and Fertility

Diploma in Naturopathy, M.D. Alternative Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Shukra Dhatu : The Ayurvedic View of Sexual Health and Fertility

According to ayurveda the body is said to be composed of the 7 dhatus i.e rasa(fliud), rakta(blood), mamsa (muscles), meda(fat), asthi(bones), majja(marrow) and sukra (semen).

*comparison are made just to explain theoretically, else they are far different things.

Sukra dhatu is present in both males and females , hence don't confuse it with sperms or seminal fluid .

Sukra dhatu is the last dhatu to be made after all 7 dhatus in body,

Hence, we can say sukra dhatu is essence of all the dhatus , it is well spreaded all through the body.

The sukra dhatu according to modern concepts can be understood as the sexual power, the ejaculation , the erectile strength , the quality of sperms , the semen or we can say overall reproductive strength of the person

A common lifestyle disorder of sukra dhatu is sukra Kshaya or loss of sukra dhatu , this includes common symptoms such as loss of erection, premature ejaculation, weakening of muscles, wrinkling of skin , whitening of hair , fatigue , loss of concentration power etc .

A proper care of diet and lifestyle is necessary to maintain healthy sukra dhatu.

Now to improve the dhatu:

  1. Take milk on daily basis ..milk and milk products are best for sukra dhatu ...
  2. Milk added with grinded almonds and pista have a good result...
  3. Ashwagandha powder has best results on sukra dhatu in males and for females shatavri powder has a great effect the powder can be taken with hot milk ...
  4. Fruits like dates , mangoes , fig, almonds , custard Apple ,strawberry , Apple , nuts , almonds , cashew etc have a positive result in improving sexual power .
  5. Vegies like spinach , cucumber , sweet potato , pumpkin seeds also boost sexual power..
  6. Fish especially tuna fish , lobster , egg yolk also increase the sukra dhatu...

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

You are right. A woman with low levels of estrogen hormones is prone to get osteoporosis, means thinning of bones and tendency to get fractures. Bot that happens in women during and after menopausal years when the periods start getting less and stop completely but food pipe cannot digest enough calcium in food as her digestive process gets slow and she can't drink milk @ a 16 years old growing up active girl. Doctors are divided to give estrogen as a supplement I too feel about the risk of getting cancer due to estrogen supplements, rather keep the bones strong by exercise, taking supplements of calcium and vitamin d, to do day to day routine activities and to accept the truth about low estrogen and to drink milk, and curds and boiled eggs as these are simple proteins and can be digested easily. One can take lots of proteins supplements but I believe to eat and breathe nature.
