Some of the comments are making me feel better I'm 10 weeks after my c section and still bleeding :/ I think its partially my BC too cause I started depo and it can screw with your stuff while you get used to it.. hopefully it ends soon!

Every woman is diffrent and every birth is diffrent. I had two emerg c- sections. My first after a really long labor. I didnt bleed a lot it was pretty light and went for bout 4 to six weeks on and off.
My second emerg section i flooded every where the 1st two days then it was just like a heavy period for six weeks. All the best.

i bled all the way through the 6 weeks after my c-section pretty heavy and only got a 3 day break and got my period for the first time since getting pregnant and that lasted for almost 2 weeks...everyone just bleeds a little different if your worried though call your doctor ...its always better to be safe then sorry!

Heavy for about 3 weeks and then lighter for another two weeks after that. It's normal to bleed all the way up until your 6 week check up. You should also get up and walk around to avoid having it come out in big clots. It was really gross and scary when I would sit for too long during the day and I'd get a big clot. I was just so tired that I didn't want to do much but then my husband and I would try to get out and just walk slowly down the street to the corner and back. It did a lot for my recovery and my mood!

off and on for 6 weeks.. its about the same as a vaginal birth.. i got lucky with my c-section... i asked the doctor if it was normal to have such light bleeding and she said no.. i was just lucky lol.. with my vaginal birth i bled wayyyy worse and longer
