I had bleeding for about 4-5weeks after giving birth. I had heavy bleeding,but everything was ok.

You might need to relax a little more. When you give birth your placenta leaves a large wound on the inside of your uterus. Too much activity can cause it to keep opening up and bleeding more. Reduce your activity level and see if that helps.

If you are bleeding heavily enough to soak a pad in an hour, or if you are passing large clots (like golf ball sized) you need to see a doctor. Also, at this point, if the blood is bright red, I would also contact your doctor.
