Is it normal for a few drops of blood to come from your c-section incision 3 weeks after?

  • When I had my youngest, I had to go to a hearing for my divorce 3 weeks after he was born. I wore jeans, and they were a bit tight, and rubbed on my incision site, causing it to bleed quite a bit. I freaked and called my doctor and he said that it was fine. But he also told me that any time there's blood or anything else coming out of it, I should call. So even though it might be perfectly fine, I'd still call and ask.

  • I don't think so. I never bled from mine.
