Local hemostatic agents (LHA) may prevent blood loss associated with
postpartum hemorrhage, in some cases, claim researchers from Bogota,
Bleeding disorders, also known as coagulopathy, cause unexpected or
uncontrollable bleeding. Bleeding can occur after injury, but may start
out of nowhere without injury.
Researchers at the Aberdeen Maternity Hospital (Scotland) recently
published a study in BJOG on a possible correlation between hemorrhage
and altered fertility. The hemorrhage does not appear to be the
contributing factor to infertility.
Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is a serious complication of pregnancy that impacts birth outcomes across all economies.
The most common cause of death during or after childbirth is hemorrhage.
Nearly 125,000 women die from hemorrhage each year during childbirth,
leading researchers to look into possible causes or markers that could
shed light on why hemorrhage occurs.
It is normal to experience some postpartum bleeding (bleeding after delivery) in the weeks or months following birth. Minimal to moderate postpartum bleeding is a sign that your uterus is contracting and healing.
Postpartum hemorrhage or bleeding is defined as the loss of more than 500 mL of blood after delivery. Postpartum hemorrhage occurs in up to 1 in 5 births.
