Extra Vaginal Bleed After ‘C’ Section Can be Prevented By Contraceptive Pills

A new study finds that taking oral contraceptive pills after caesarean sections can prevent vaginal bleeding between menstrual cycles.

Researchers at the Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine have announced today that oral contraceptive pills could prevent vaginal bleeding between menstrual cycles after a caesarean section. The further explained that the anatomic defects at the site of the surgery could result in scars in the uterus. This is believed to cause bleeding outside a woman's normal periods.


The scientists have explained that so far there had been no simple and easy method for the treatment of the bleeding. The research led by Dr. Masahiro Tahara and colleagues had conducted a study testing the effectiveness of treatment with a birth control pill that contained an estrogen and progesterone.

The researchers reported that 10 out of 11 women who had participated in the study experienced a decrease in recurrent vaginal bleeding, which was followed by a stopping of the bleed after three cycles of treatment, while in the case of the 11th woman; she had experienced normal menstrual bleeding after three additional cycles.

The researchers explaining that they aren't yet sure as to how the treatment works, said that they are of the belief that the pills improve the reliability of the lining of blood vessels. The authors have written in their study, "Our findings support the use of conservative hormonal therapy for treating intermenstrual bleeding in patients with defects at the previous caesarean uterine scar." They further also added, "However, it must be noted that this study is preliminary, and more work is needed to show the effectiveness in a large population of women with prior caesarean deliveries."
