Bleeding after vaginal delivery...how long?

I can't remember how long I bled after DD#1. Still bleeding after 3 weeks with this one. It's off and on, sometimes there will be nothing on the pad or when I wipe all day and then it reappears with a vengeance in the evening. I've not been doing a ton of activity since DD#2's arrival. Just a bit tired of all the bleeding!

  • I'm 1 month, 4 days PP & still bleeding off and on. I'm ready for it to stop. I'm not exactly feeling so fresh down there these days. Especially now that I have hemorrhoids in the mix. Weeee.

  • The nurse told me that you can have bleeding for as long as 12 weeks. Mine subsided after 3. If you are BF it ramps down quicker.

    I didn't stop completely until about 6 weeks. It was off and on until then. 
  • Mine stopped at 6 weeks, and is now back but light at almost 7 weeks... Grrrrr

  • I was actually just coming on to ask about this. I'm 15 days pp and its still very heavy with clots. Is that normal? It had lightened up at the hospital but just got heavy again Wednesday.

    My nurse said it will likely fluctuate, but that if you are doing too much, you may see more clots. Put your feet up and take it easy to see if that helps. If the clots are large, call your doc.

  • im 2.5 weeks pp and still have a light period. I haven't had a "gush" in a week. I think this light bleeding will continue for at least another week.

  • We're at 6 weeks today and it took about 4 weeks for me to mostly stop bleeding although every so often I still get light spotting. I notice it more on the days when I'm out and about and not just sitting around the house.
