After my son I bled for like two weeks. Seriously. I had the depo shot right away, and my periods were very weird for a few months after wards. I agree with Cristine. If its still really heavy, consult your doc to make sure that it is something normal for you and your body. If it is a regular flow or spotting, I would worry to much unless you are really worried about it. I always have said, better safe then sorry! Good luck!

My first periods for both of my kids lasted pretty long. It is a heavy flow still? If it's still heavy then I would consult with your Dr. just to be on the safe side :)
