POSTPARTUM HEALTH

1.URINARY INCONTINENCE
Two-third of women will suffer UI (involuntary leakage of urine) sometime in their life, including women who have not been pregnant or given birth. Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) & Urge Urinary Incontinence (UUI) are the most common types of urinary incontinence. SUI may happen with coughing, sneezing, laughing, heavy lifting, jumping or exercising. UUI refers to a sudden strong urge to urinate associated with small or large amount of urine loss and increased frequency of urination.

2.PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE (POP)
POP Occurs when there is inadequate support of the bladder, uterus or rectum by the pelvic floor muscles and associated ligaments; or when there is excessive pressure on the pelvic organs. Symptoms of a POP may include:

  • Heaviness in the vagina

  • Sensations of something “coming down”or a Lump bulging out of the vagina

  • Pain or decreased sensation with intercourse

  • Recurrent urinary tract infections

  • Difficulty emptying your bowel

  • A slow urine stream during voiding

3.MASTITIS

Mastitis is an inflammation of the breast tissue as a result of a blocked milk duct. The milk collecting behind the blockage can be forced into the breast tissue causing an inflammatory response. This may or may not be associated with an infection or fever. If these symptoms are not treated within 24-48 hours, you may start to feel unwell, feverish and have general malaise.
