    Bleeding and periods depend on breast feeding and other stuff. I bled for a week and my period started straight after.. :dohh:

    It all varies with bleeding , nobody is the same!
    I have a memory of a goldfish but i say 3-4 weeks i stopped bleeding. I think :lol:
    Periods start differently too , if you are breastfeeding they may not start for a very long time and if your bottle feeding it tends to come in much earlier. I'd say 4 weeks after your bleeding has stopped.

    But thats just from my experience :)
     
  4. I bled for around 6weeks

    Did you breastfeed? and that must have been annoying, you just stopped bleeding then flow came!

    I had C-sections. With my first two the bleeding was 3-4 weeks and I didn't get a period until 3-4 months later as I breastfed.

    This time around, I bled for 5 weeks and then got my period straight away. My period is finally tailing off and it is day 10. I am bottle feeding this time. It's not been fun!

    I'm still bledding 4 weeks post delivery.

    Periods depend on whether or not your breastfeed.

    Yeah but I was only part-breastfeeding. Thought I was going to get away with not having a period till I stopped :dohh: Boy was I wrong!!

    I am breastfeeding and I have kinda stopped bleeding- I stopped yesterday during the day and had a bit at night... my HV said to me that when breastfeeding it takes longer for you period.. But like everyone else is saying " Everyone is different"

    I think the bleeding after pregnancy makes up for the lack of periods during pregnancy. LOL

    I bled for 2 weeks but never enough to write home about, not even as much as my periods before which were light anyway.I lost quite a lot of blood at delivery though so thats probably why it was short. I just got my period back and salim is nearly 9 weeks.
