Bleeding After Birth

Erin - October 13

I had a baby girl 7 weeks ago, but I still have light bleeding...but not consistently. How long did everyone else have bleeding after giving birth?? I don't go to see my doc for another week (and I'm getting sick of wearing pads and liners!!!). Thanks in advance.

I had the same thing, but mine was a consistent heavy period for three months, then one day it lit up and stopped! The doctors don't know why this happened. Just keep asking your doctors.

A lot of women are surprised to discover just how heavy this bleeding can be initially and how long this bleeding can last. Recent studies have suggested that most women experience lochia for at least a month after the delivery, and some for as long as six weeks. (The lochia typically tapers down from a bright red flow to a lighter pinkish discharge around the third to 10th day postpartum to an almost colorless, odorless discharge sometime after the 10th day postpartum. So don't worry that you're destined to experience period-like bleeding for the full six weeks. That's not the norm.)

My daughter was born on October 1. It has been almost six weeks after I had her and I am still in pantiliners. The bleeding started out heavy and lightened up over time. You are not alone...
