    After Caitlin I bled for weeks on end red blood ... so much the pads began irritating me so badly but this time it must have been a matter of days - a week of red blood loss then ever since all I have had is brown goo ...tmi but YAK!

    Is this normal to have such a low blood loss and is the brown goo for 3 weeks ongoing normal - not sign of infections or anything?

    Maybe a silly question but comparing it to after I had Caitlin it did make me wonder.

    yep, that's pretty much what happened with me. It did go back to red two weeks in for a day or so because I'd over done it but after the first 5 days it was brown blood

    :rofl: sounds like mine, I actually didn't mind it much as there was so much less of it than the blood
