Normal To Bleed

I gave birth to my daughter 4 days ago and I am still bleeding from my st_tches. I know your supposed to bleed for several weeks but not from the st_tches right? I had an episiotomy and I still tore a little. My st_tches go all the way back. So my question is...is it normal or should I call the Dr?

hi, it would depend on the amount of bleeding( ie a few light spots here and there when you stretched etc) IMO 4 days after delivery is a bit long to still bleed from st_tches -- I would give the dr. a call. Good luck.

Hi! I agree, call your OB and find out if he wants to see you or not. Like I told you before, I had two second degree tears, but, I never bled from my sutures. Does your OB have you taking stool softners?

yes im taking them and they help out alot! I'm just still really really uncomfortable. I hate that I'm still taking the pain meds. I notice that my dd sleeps alot longer when I take the meds. She had more alert times when I dont. Its frustrating me! MJVDEC01- What is your name? I'm Suzie by the way!

Hey Suzie. My name is Mandi. About the pain meds, don't worry too much about it, you won't need them for long. I took them as well when Madalyn was born and yeah she probably did sleep a bit more, but the pediatrician a__sured me it would not harm her.
