Retained Placenta Postpartum Hemorrhage
I had an ultrasound that showed retained placenta almost 2 weeks postpartum, but I haven't bled at all for 4 days. can I decline the d&c?
Maybe: Sometimes the retained placenta is due to an ingrown into the muscle placenta (accreta) and is best left to come out on its own. If that is not the case by the MD's assessment, then a D & C is recommended to prevent an infection. If sudden bright red bleeding occurs at anytime run do not walk to the ER as it can be massive in a very short time. ...Read more

Blame iron..maybe?!: Following a hemorrhage, there is a good chance, your doctor started you on iron supplementation. Yes? If so, the iron will help speed up your bodies natural process of replacing the blood lost after delivery. Unfortunately, iron can be very harsh on your GI system (cramping, constipation, etc).

I had a d& c and a uterine artery embolization for severe postpartum hemorrhage its been a week and i'm lightly bleeding is it normal ?
Yes: Having light bleeding a week after uterine artery embolization for a postpartum hemorrhage is normal. The bleeding is likely coming from the lining of the uterus where the placenta was. That area has to heal (even after having these others treatments) so women will bleed or spot for 3-6 weeks after having a baby. ...Read more
