In brief: Uterine tenderness

Uterine tenderness is one of the most common symptoms.
Obs use the term "tenderness" or "tender" to refer to discomfort or pain in the uterus, typically when pushing gently on the uterus. There can also be signs like a foul-smelling vaginal discharge, fever, etc. In cases of postpartum endometritis.
