Dark Brown Discharge?

So I had my daughter 5 weeks ago. Directly afterwards the blood was bright red for a while, but it stopped for a while. Recently I had a little bit of brown discharge which I wasnt too worried about but today where was quite a bit. Is this normal? Oh yeah, I also had a fever last weekend that lasted for four days and at one point got really bad (104 temp). I dont know if the two are linked or not. Anyone might know whats going on?

  • old blood i bled for 6 weeks after my daughter and the last week was old blood like that... don't worry i think everything is normal... if you are worried you can call your ob but you should be having your 6 week follow up soon so you can ask then too! Good Luck
