Ok Monday I started my period for the 1st time and I gave birth on 3.20.14. She was c section. I had heavy periods prior to getting pregnant but it was like hot and heavy like an ultra tampon every 2-3 hours for the 1st or 2nd day. I'm going on day 4 and I feel like I could shove the whole box up there only to have to change then 2 hrs later. Now I did fall Monday it was about a hour before I started bleeding. Could that have made my period worse or is this just the way things go after a c section? Also I fell weird don't think I landed on any girly parts but I knocked the heck out of my knee. Another thing that's strange is no clots,I used to pass at least a few but this one not one. And it's brighter red then I'm use to. Not stop sign red but not that brown red either kind of the color of cranberry juice, sorry tmi I know but just want to know if this is bad call the doctor now or my body throwing me a welcome back aunt flow party? Thanks

Things are better, I called the doctor and everything is fine. It was kind of a combo of stress, the fall and my scar tissue

I am sorry this answer did not come sooner. Anytime you go thru more than a thick pad or super tampon in a hour or so and your bleeding keeps at that pace, go to the doctor. In all likelihood things are fine, but to be bleeding that fast, go get checked out. Let us know how things worked out.
