Post subject: Bleeding and discharge after caesarean section
Hi girls. Help needed please!
As you know (or may not know) I had a section over two weeks ago now. I bled quite heavily at first which I know is normal. Then it lightened quite a lot.
But now I'm getting quite a heavy yellowy brown red tinged discharged discharge that's quite a snotty texture. Is this normal?!

Little late i know but yes i had heavy bleeding, then it goes lighter, and can change between the two continually!
Think of a wound healing, (from where the placenta was attached), it will be red, brown, green, yellow, etc as it heals. Perfectly normal and the more you do, the more you'll bleed, etc for longer, awful i know as you have plenty to do but i think mine calmed down around 8-10 weeks after i ignored EVERYONES advice and might as well have done a marathon the amount i was doing!
Plus you can still call up the triage and ask advice, i pestered them as i was convinced i was dying haha
good luck! xx
