I got my periods post delivery on 6th month.The flow rate then was very low.My next periods was after 35 days and the flow was normal.But from last month my periods cycle is more like till 10-12 days.This month the flow is too much especially sometimes just like water flowing though a tap along with a mass of red clot.I am bit worried about the flowrate,is it normal in case of a breast feeding mom

That seems like an unnusually heavy flow. Before baby I had really heavy periods. (Changed pads every half hour if I was moving around at all) Do you feel ill with the heavy blood? I hear periods can change after a baby. I'm kinda worried about what mine might be like. Make sure to eat foods high in iron, preferably from an animal source since it is easier to absorb that way. And also have some citrus fruit with it. But do not have your calcium at the same time as your iron food. (Calcium and iron battle to be absorbed) Iron helps a bunch with heavy periods. Don't forget your b vitimins either.
