Postpartum and Postnatal Question

User Profile
My wife had c-section. Our baby is now 5 month old and healthy. After 14 days of delivery, we had an intercourse and another a week later. My wife did not complain about anything 45 days past childbirth. But then suddenly she lost appetite. Whenever she ate anything, she had to go to toilet. It got to a point that she did not eat anything but fruits for days. We visited a doctor 60 days after child birth and they said that there is a stomach infection. They prescribed ciproflaxacin. she took it 5 days and at first felt good. She started eating. Now my daugther is 5 month old. Previous reaction to food reappear in my wife. she thinks umbilical cord unwound. What do you think?

Hello.
Welcome to this forum.
This loss of appetite could be due to diverse reasons and most commonly can be due to gastritis itself. At first, try some antacid tablets to be chewed as four tablets at once three to four times a day. Ask her to stop taking iron tablets if any. Next, meet your doctor for an opinion regarding this matter.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
