Post subject: Bleeding after a c-section?!?!
Hi ladies.

After 7 weeks of my c-section im still bledding, its doing my head in now lol. ive got through a month worth of the pill and am on my break so am still going to bleed. i thought that going on my pill would stop it like it did with my son (natural labour). i feel really tired and drained lately and i think its where im bleeding so heavily. docs say that some people do and it takes a few months to get back to normal. ive also been suffereing with alot of leg aches, dont know if its related? anyone else in the same boat?

i bled for 8-9 weeks after my c-section.
Went to the doctor at around 7-8 weeks after n he was an arse as usual, said its nothing aand should stop soon.
But i too felt absoloutly drained and it did my nut in.
Hope it stops soon

Thanks for your replies. devonmum - ah thanks for that. soon2b yes 7 weeks it feels like forever, at first it was the kinda brown blood that gets rid of everything, but for the last couple of weeks its been bright red! (sorry, lol)
niccsy at least im not the only one, maybe it'll calm down when i start month 2 of my pill on thursday. when its only a few days to a week like usual you dont mind wearing huge nickers and avoiding light trousers etc but when its this long it does your head in.
Oh well, my little girl is so worth it! Very Happy

if it went from brown to bright red then maybe it was your period tagged onto the end!
So hopefully this means a light at the end of a tunnel lol..
I know i still cant get out the habbit of big knickers, mainly cos i threw all my nice onesa away, my bums way too big to fit in them now lol

Whenever I start taking the pill I get heavy breakthrough bleeding for about 5 weeks. Maybe this could be happening to you too, combined with bleeding after pregnancy and the return of AF? I hope it stops for you soon, it sounds miserable x
