The uterus and birth canals come back to normal. To the previous size, the uterus will come in 5—6 weeks, the most active period of contraction is the first few days after childbirth. With the contraction of the uterus, the process of rejection of bloody bodies occurs. During this period there may be spotting 3—4 days, they will be more frequent and bright red, then brown, and then lighten. After 6—8 weeks, excretions cease to appear.
As for the sex organs, they come back to normal 2—3 months after the birth.
