Hello Ive been diagnosed with a uterine infection and been prescribed metronidazole antibiotics, 400mg, 3 a day for the course of 1 week. I had some retained placenta which caused infection. Its now 6 weeks after giving birth. continued to bleed red (small clots) but lightly, and bad cramps. I had an infection in the past due to an EVAC 5 years ago, and it was very serious and had to be hospitalised. Lucky to be here today! I'm hoping that this time it clears up. I'm not bleeding no where near as bad as last time. Does anyone else have experience of this? what was your treatment and was it successful?? I hope it clears up soon! How long does it usually take to recover?
