Thanks for using HCM

You have continued bleeding due to retained membranes inside uterus, that has been got infected. normally during delivery full products of conception should come out, any retained products act as foreign body gets infection.

Now anyways you have started taking antibiotic for infection, continue them. retained products need to be expelled, which might cause some amount of pain.

Hope i have answered your query, have a good health.
