  • I only bleed for like a 2 weeks (it was very light for me after the first few days). And then it was another almost 2 months before I got my first period afterwards.

  • I bled for 3 weeks straight then spotted off and on for another 2-3 weeks! Just when I'd think I was done and stop wearing liners, it would happen again. If you are concerned, talk to your doctor, but chances are, everything is perfectly normal, it is just one of those frustrating things.

  • About 3 weeks, and then spotting for another week or so, and then my period came at 5 weeks. I've heard you bleed longer if you labored and had an emergency C-section than if you have a scheduled C-section. I don't know how true that is, though. (Mine was scheduled.)

  • My first child I only bled for maybe two weeks, but with the second child it was for three or four weeks.
