The cleansings. A sero-sanguineous discharge following delivery. During the first two or three days, it is bloody; but afterwards becomes green-coloured,-green waters-and exhales a disagreeable and peculiar odour. The lochia, in different stages, have received the names Lochia cruenta, L. serosa and L. alba seu mucosa seu lactea. The duration, quantity, and character of the discharge vary according to numerous circumstances. It flows from the part of the uterus which formed a medium of communication between the mother and foetus, and continues, usually, from 14 to 21 days. See Parturition.
