First Period .MommaBug. 3 kids; 2 angel babies; Dayton, OH, United States 931 posts

I had my 2nd c-section and a tubal ligation done exactly 6 weeks ago. I started my first post-partum period 3 days ago and since then, I've been in hell. I'm cramping a little, normal, but what bothers me is the bleeding. It's terrible. I have never in my life had so much blood come out. I have to change my pad at least every two hours and it's completely soaked. It's disgusting. It was so bad today that I had to leave work because it bled all over my pants. Im tired and get very dizzy. Like wtf is going on?? I've had 2 previous pregnancies and never bled like this after either delivery (one vaginally and one prior cesarean). I'm thinking maybe I should just sit on the toilet for the next 5 days or so...sigh...is this normal? When should I go to the ER? What could they do for me if I did go?

If you're feeling dizzy, I think you should be seen. You likely need a blood cell count down to make sure your hemoglobin is still up.

Does not sound normal to me. I would call your doc and see what they say.

Your hemoglobin? It's part of your red blood cells that carry oxygen throughout your body. It's just a simple blood draw, and they have results within minutes.

K... try to drink lots of water in the meantime to help replenish the blood loss.



Hope you feel better soon!
