C-sections

Bleeding 10 days later??

I had a csection on 5/23 and everything went great. I had minimal bleeding afterwards. Today I had a decent amount of vaginal bleeding out of nowhere. I feel fine, no cramping or anything. Can anyone suggest why I've had zero bleeding for the last week and a half and now all if a sudden I do? I haven't been sticking to the "rules" of not overdoing it...I'm very stubborn :

Re: Bleeding 10 days later??

  • I have days where my spotting is so light that it won't even make a mark on the pad (only when I wipe, and sometimes not even then), and other days when it picks up and is more moderate bleeding.  I think I had a day or two of heavy bleeding that I would compare to the first few days of my period.  I think it's pretty normal for the bleeding to vary.

  • I didn't stick to the rules either and would go from no bleeding one day to seriously needing a pad the next. Just try to slow down for a day or two and it will lighten up again.
  • Your bleeding is your bodies way of telling you if you need to slow down. Light bleeding is ok, but heavy bleeding means you gotta slow down and rest. I know it's hard cause I am very much a do it yourself person too and having to rely on others for things sucks kinda.

    This. And I'm 7 weeks CS PP and just stopped bleeding about a week ago.
  • The bleeding can come and go--light, non existent, then heavier (but not soaking through a pad in an hour) for 6 weeks.

  • just be careful i had a c/s in september 2012. I had bled lightly (little blood on the pad) everything was fine recovery was great until october almost one monh later i hemhorraged and lost 70% of the blood in my body. Then said hemhorrages are not common in c/s so till this day they dont know what happened just keep and eye out some bleeding is defently good. i had 3 blood transfusions and still my periods are out a whack!
