Hi ladies wondering if any of you can please help me, I had a cesarean 5 weeks ago.
Had some heavy ish bleeding for 2 days after and then just brown spotting (this was quite smelly), bleeding stopped all together after about 3.5 weeks and my partner and I started to have sex again.
I am breastfeeding exclusively and have also been on the mini pill for about 1.5 weeks now too.
About 2 days ago I took a shower and when I washed myself I noticed that I lost 3-4 small clots (about the size of sultanas). Bleeding started straight after.
I called my doc and he said that unless the clots are really offensive (stinky) then it's ok as some amount of blood is to be expected.
But now I am bleeding sooooooo heavily, filling up sanitary pads within 10 minutes and it's bright red blood, also still passing some small clots but there's no smell or pain.
Is this normal???
Could it be my first period even tho I'm BF and on pill?
Please help, I'm really worried. Have never Ed like this in my life but don't want to hassle the doctor
