  • I bled very heavily the first few days then it started to slow down. I also had clots for about 2 1/2 weeks. The first two days after I had one clot the size of a deck of cards.

    However, if you're really concerned, call your doctor.

  • You should not bleed this heavy after a few days. If it has been more than three or four days, call your doctor.

  • It varies from person to person, I would call and just ask your doctor. After I had my baby I bled very heavily for days, with chunks of stuff coming out, and HUGE clots. Everything was fine with my body. But its better to talk to your doctor if you feel it is too excessive. Good Luck!
