SUBINVOLUTION OF THE WOMB
Category: Diseases of Women
This simply means that the womb, after
miscarriage or child-birth, fails to return to its normal size and weight.
Causes. This is frequently due to getting up too soon after labor.
Symptoms. Menstruation or too much flow of blood (menorrhagia), dull,
heavy feeling in the pelvis, backache or leucorrhea.
Results. The womb frequently becomes misplaced.
Treatment. Proper supports should be put in after the womb has been
placed in its proper position.
If seen early enough some cases can be cured by tampons of ichthyol used
three times a week and prolonged hot water injections at bed time. Cotton
soaked in ichthyol and glycerin are frequently of benefit three times a
week used as a tampon. The patient should not be on her feet much, or be
active. Witch-hazel water can be added to the hot water injection if so
