i am 10 weeks postpartum and i just went to the bathroom and on my pad was like 5 small clots they were whitish in color, like the color of an umbilical cord. could this have been placenta that didnt come out which would explain why im still bleeding 10 weeks later?

I don't know, but I'd go to the ER. That's not normal.

If it was placenta, you'd probably be sick by now. It's def not normal, though. It could probably wait until tomorrow.

yeah, it causes pretty bad infections but if your not experiencing any pain I would probably just wait and bring it up at my appointment.

i got the depo 4 weeks ago, maybe that could be a reason? it was just so gross lol. never experienced white mucosy clots before.
