Over the last 30 years, the incidence of surgical births has increased significantly, from 7% in 1990 to more than 20% by 2020 (WHO, 2020). Although there are a number of guidelines for mother and child to perform a cesarean section, this surgery is not without its complications. Complications in cesarean section are studied in 2 groups: during surgery and postoperative complications. The postoperative period requires special attention to the woman. One of the most common complications is endometritis, which can later lead to the first stage of sepsis or an unsatisfactory condition of the uterine scar, and even lead to uterine amputation. Endometritis occurs in 1% to 3% of cases of natural childbirth, in 5-15% of cases of planned surgery, and in 15-20% of cases of emergency caesarean section (Mackeen A.D. et all., 2015). Uterine subinvolution after cesarean section, can cause postpartum uterine bleeding, endometritis, peritonitis.
