If you feel uncomfortable or if the flow has clots or heavy you should go in sorry tho be visual but beter to go in and find out nothings wrong, then not go in and it be something serious. Best wishes

Quoting Mary Elizabeth:

i am very very very tired all the time no matter how much i sleep, and i bruise VERY easy right now


I would definitely call your doctor, dear. Anemia and potentially excess bleeding aren't things you want to mess with! Please let us know how you are.

I was bleeding for at least 3 months! However, it was very light. When i asked the doctor she told me that as long as it was getting less and that I felt alright then I was probably fine. Some women just bleed more than others. To be safe I would call your doctor since they know your history better.

Generally the bleeding should have stopped by ten weeks postpartum at the most. If it's just a tiny bit it's probably nothing to worry about, but if you are having any abdominal pain, an odor (other than normal odor), feel tired a lot or exceptionally low energy, it could be a problem. Anemia can lead to continued bleeding since low iron can keep blood from clotting the way it should, low energy, easy bruising, and continuing bleeding that should have stopped are signs of anemia. Also, sometimes small pieces of the placenta can stay attached to the uterus when the rest comes out during labor, one sign of this can be nasty vaginal odor as the tissue starts to die off, and it could also explain the bleeding. If it's something you are really concerned about definitely go see your doc about it. Another thing that could have happened is if the postpartum bleeding had almost finished and then your period started immediately, postpartum periods can be very irregular, and can really start at any time.
