Bright red blood after 2 weeks of delivery?


Did anyone have brigt red blood start again 2 weeks after delivery? I keep reading up on it and a lot of websites say you shouldn't have bright red bleeding after 4 days. Do I need to be concerned? I did have a lot of bleeding issues after delivery and at 11 days past delivery I found gauze that had been left in me.

I had a c section and had red blood occasionally from about 3wks pp, I found it was when I did a bit too much or something strenuous like heavier lifting or long walks.
It may be worth contacting your doc though as you've had 'problems' already.

Contact your doc to be sure but I personally had bright red blood (but scant) for 6 weeks. Then it just stopped, it never went through the typical color changes.

The amounr of blood I have is tapering off, but the colour of it can still be pretty bright some times and i'm 3.5 weeks pp. The nurse said that can be normal. Does it smell bad at all?or do you have a fever?

Yes I did, I had a womb infection so had antibiotics to clear it up- best to get checked out x

Please get checked out by the doctor. Chances are it's nothing to worry about, but sometimes having more red bleeding can indicate an infection. I was told by the midwife (and the doctor) that unless the lochia/bleeding is really smelly it's unlikely to be an infection, but it's definitely worth getting checked out, as hopefully that will give you peace of mind.

Thanks ladies. I'm already on an antibiotic bc my dr gave me one when I found the gauze left in me. I didn't have an infection then but she gave it to me just in case.
