After the 10th month of pregnancy, you enter the traditional Chinese period of menstruation. One of the most common phrases you hear during the menstruation period is that this is the only chance you have in your life to change your physique, so be sure to get plenty of rest, don’t get out of bed, and lie still. Unbeknownst to you, there is a disease that is creeping up on you – postpartum venous thrombosis.

01Causes and symptoms of venous thrombosis

After getting venous thrombosis, many moms sometimes find that their heart beats suddenly faster, the localized skin on their legs is pale or bruised, and some parts of their legs are painful to touch and hot and swollen. This is because mothers are sedentary and bedridden for a long time, which reduces the amount of movement and slows down the blood flow, causing blood to pool into clots in the veins. And once the blood clots in the veins are dislodged and enter the body with the blood circulation, more serious symptoms such as pulmonary embolism can occur, seriously jeopardizing the health of mothers! Some moms may even experience swelling and pain in the lower extremities as a sequela.

02Prevention of venous thrombosis

Preventing postpartum venous thrombosis is actually very easy, and that is by being active early in the postpartum period, which can effectively reduce the risk of venous thrombosis. Mothers who give birth naturally can get out of bed soon if there are no tears, side cuts or other complications. Here are some exercises for mothers who have given birth on time to help them prevent venous thrombosis.
