Post subject: Still bleeding :-/
Hi ladies, I'm getting a little corcerned as I'm still bleeding and my baby is now 5 wks 3 days old. It was a very difficult labour and delivery. He is my fourth baby and I've never had bleeding for so long after delivery. I'm beginning to wonder if Im actually having my first period as I had a break of almost 3 days with nearly nothing. I'm now very heavy again and sorry tmi.. It's bright red. It's shouldn't still be so heavy & bright red at this stage if it's not my period? I'm always tired ( I know normal after a baby!) and a little dizzy. Ive booked myself in for a check up on Thursday, but any opinions/advice/experiences would be appreciated thanks x

I didn't bleed for that long after the birth but I have noticed that periods since have been quite painful. They were heavy for the first few months, usually mine were 3/4 days. It is getting back to normal but still quite painful. I just put it down to my body getting back to normal after 4 kids.

With Avril I bled quite a long time, not sure exactly how long but at least 4 weeks. Now I'm at 2 weeks and it has stopped.
They say that bleeding up until 6 weeks is normal though. It does sounds like that all that bleeding has given you aneamia, so definately get it checked out hun.
