Hello! I had my son April 2nd, via c-section. I bled for 4 weeks afterwards. On May 27th I got my period. It's my first one since him. It was very light at first, kinda like spotting. A couple days later it hit full force. Its very heavy now and it looks like it wont be going away anytime soon. I was just wondering if this was normal? Its usually not this heavy and its normally lighter by now. This is my first child, so I am completely clueless.
Thanks so much!!
it sounds normal to me, i've heard the first few postpartum periods can be pretty heavy. as long as you're not soaking a pad every hour you should be fine. you can always call your doctor if you're concerned. i had my baby 2 days before you but i haven't had a period yet, though i'm on the pill so i know i'll be getting one soon.
Thanks! I wouldn't say every hour on the pads, but about every 2-3. Im gonna see what happens the rest of this week and over the weekend. If I still have it next week, Im going to call my doctor just to be sure.
I had a c section two months ago (9/10/09), bled for three weeks, stopped for a week, then bled again for another week. And a few days ago (11/8/09), i started spotting here and there and have been for three days now. Is this normal????
I'm somewhat confoodled now - I have no answers - but these days -after 3 c-sections and a miscarriage in the middle of last year, my periods have been 'normal' for a week, but for the week after, I've had that dark crappy discharge which means really, I have to wear a pad every day for almost a week after my periods have finished. WHen I mentioned it to my GP, I asked could it be because my uterus had become 'lazy'? She said possibly. But there's been no exploration done whatsoever. Does anyone have any ideas at all about this? I turned 40 this year and I'm telling you - while this is happening, I do NOT want sex at all because I just feel dirty all the time.
I might edit to add, 1st C-section in 2004, then VAC 2005, then, C-section, 2006 and 2008. The Miscarriage was maybe July 2009 - we were all very, very sick with various winter viruses (being in Australia) so it's hard to remember that date.
