Still bleeding...6 weeks after birth!


Hi All,

I was wondering if this is normal.....!

I do have my doctors appointment coming up so will discuss it with her....but just thought id post here too.

Exactly 6 weeks after a perfectly normal birth i am still bleeding very lightly. I go maybe a day or 2 without anything and then it starts again....

Anyone had this?

Thanks

x

i had exactly the same thing. it almost stopped at 4 weeks but then started again. i bled on and off for 5 and a bit wks. went to see my gp and she said it can sometimes take longer but as long as it wasn't lots and lots of blood, or foul smelling discharge or pain.

Im still bleeding too, on friday 5 weeks since giving birth, I dont bleed only a little. Its either nothing or quite a lot (well quite a lot being soon 5 weeks after giving birth, but nothing as close to as days after giving birth but like the last days of period).

6 weeks is about as long as I bled for, though after the first week or so it was thin, brownish stuff rather than scary blood, and by the end it was more yellow and hardly visible.
