How long did yours last? Mines been going for at least 3 weeks now! Starting to REALLY get me down as it's REALLY heavy all the time! :(




EDIT- I meant my first period after giving birth/c-section. not pp bleeding :)
my pp bleeding stopped at 3ish weeks. I'm now 11weeks pp!. x

I am assuming you are talking about your PP bleeding and not your period.
It isnt your period until after it is 6 weeks.



My PP bleeding lasted 8 weeks.



ETA: I am wrong. Periods can be irregular after having a baby are you on any form of BC? Those can really mess with periods.

my periods before baby were always on time, they lasted 4 days. and that's it.
i went on BC (the pill, it's always been perfect for me) at 7 weeks pp. and a few days after I started taking it the period started.
and it's been never ending since, not slowing or anything, it's awful! lol.

Quoting Dexter's Mummy!:" You're first period lasted 6-7weeks?!"


Yes. It was the most miserable month in a half of my life. I was 4 months PP when I had my first period.

Quoting Dexter's Mummy!:" omg how awfull. I hope mine don't last that long, I was thinking of going to my docter and seeing if ... [snip!] ... and seeing if he recommends anything but I'm not sure he will, Thank you, least I know it's not abnormal to be on so long! x"


My PP bleeding after I had DD last 5-6 weeks. I went in at 6 weeks PP for him to check everything and everything was normal. I breastfed until 4 months. That's when I had my first period. I called my OB when I was bleeding for about 3 weeks. He said it was normal and okay. I called again once I was bleeding for 6 weeks. I went in and he checked out my lady parts and such. He said everything was normal. I spotted for the next week. It was awful.

Also, my periods went back to normal after that first long period (every 28 days exactly and would bleed for 4-5 days).

Quoting Dexter's Mummy!:" was yours constante thin blood flow? I've woken up this morning (after changing the pad once in the ... [snip!] ... the night already) COVERED in blood. the bed got some on, my bed clothes are covered :( This can't be normal? I feel awful!. x"


It would be heavy for a few days then light. It was a constant flow but fluctuated from heavy to light every few days.
