not been on here for ages- no time but was looking for some advice.
sophie's now 5weeks old and i bled after birth for about 2weeks. had gotten really light by the end tho. two weeks ago i started bleedin really heavy again and was told it was my period. its been there 2weeks and is so so heavy, sorry tmi but running down my legs and leaking straight threw pads in couple of hours.
is this normal?
Evie is 5 weeks old now and I still havent had my period yet. I was bleeding up until last week, but for the last week or so it was very light. Sometimes it would start up a little heavier again but then get light by the end of the day.
Breastfeeding makes a big difference to how heavy your flow is too as Kayleigh says, it makes the womb contract and this can often make for a bit of a flood.
I'd call the doc tbh, just to rule out infection etc.
