Can you describe symptoms of uterus infection after fibroid removal surgery? I had the surgery 6 months ago, now have bleeding between periods

Unlikely infection: If you had this 6 mos ago infection would have appeared long before this time and be manifest by fevers, discharge, pain, etc. If you are having bleeding, please go see your ob/gyn and be reexamined.

Infection (Definition)

Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more

What are the symptoms of uterus infection?

What are the symptoms of uterus infection?

Pain: An infection in the uterus is called endometritis. Symptoms usually include lower abdominal or pelvic pain. Low-grade fever or vaginal discharge may also be other symptoms. Pain during intercourse may also be a clue. I would highly recommend you visiting your ob/gyn or primary care doctor.

Sister has uterus infection and says she may need an emergency DNC... What in the world does this mean and what's the cause?

DNC: Dilatation and curettage (D&C or DNC) means to dilate the entrance of the uterus and scrape the inside of the uterus and send the scraping for testing like looking for cells or futures for infection. This is a very common procedure and should not cause any problem

What are the treatments for a postpartum uterus infection not solved with antibiotics?

What are the treatments for a postpartum uterus infection not solved with antibiotics?

Worst case: If antibiotics for what is believed to be post partum infection of the uterus don't work, the symptoms being treated are either not from an infection, or there are bacteria present and/or the environment in the uterus is such that these antibiotics are not effective. The source of an infection needs to be removed, potentially by way of hysterectomy.

Had a miscarriage just over a week ago and I have a uterus infection and on co-amoxiclav does it ease bleeding and blood clots?

Had a miscarriage just over a week ago and I have a uterus infection and on co-amoxiclav does it ease bleeding and blood clots?

Not directly: Antibiotics were prescribed to treat your uterine infection. They do not directly treat uterine bleeding with clots. However, if your infection is the cause of your bleeding, then the antibiotics can help indirectly by resolving the underlying cause. Talk to your doctor about other medications to reduce your bleeding, depending on what your most recent ultrasound showed. Take Care!

While: While this may represent normal lochia (bleeding after delivery), please have your midwife examine you to be sure she doesn't think that you have retained placenta. If you have heavier bleeding, pain, or fever then please be evaluated as an emergency.

I have 5 children 3 c-section with very thin uterus had surgical abortion failed, now I'm 16 w what can I do? I'm terrified

What did your OB say: If you do not want the pregnancy someone can do a second trimester termination, if u keep the pregnancy, an amnio can be done at 37 weeks so u have the c-section before u would go into labor please discuss all options with your OB asap.

I had a C-section 4 weeka ago and I've had sex twice will I be ok or will I run into problems? Also when does your uterus go back to normal?

No problems...: Having intercourse 4 weeks after a c/section usually won't cause any problems. Your uterus goes back to normal size by 4-6 weeks. Best wishes!

DiscussWithYourDoc: That's a very complicated issue. Much too complicated to address here. But first, let's be grateful you have a brand spanking new baby & that you are all right. Decisions on whether or not to do a C-section may have to be made at the last minute if everything isn't going according to plan. If not that, then other factors may compel the doctor to do one, but when there is time, they should discuss with you

I'm wondering can the uterus rupture if the woman never had a c-section before?

I'm wondering can the uterus rupture if the woman never had a c-section before?

Yes: Uterine rupture can occur from trauma, operative deliveries, in women who have had other previous uterine surgeries, in long labors and in women who have had multiple babies.

My uterus is attached to my C-section incision, can it be fixed, I want another child I don't want to have to have a hysterectomy. Please help?

Scar: You can have the area repaired to remove the attachment from the abdominal wall. Your doctor can use measures to reduce the risk of the tissue reforming after the surgery so that the chance of attachment is less.
