  • Hmm...with my first C-Section I bled for at least 6 weeks, pretty heavily. It finally slowed down and jut suddenly stopped. With my daughter, which was my 2nd C-Section, I bled lightly for about 2 weeks, then I'd stop for a few days and bleed some...just on and off for a bit. Dark brown blood is old blood, gross to think about, but that's what it is. After you stop bleeding, at some point, you'll have your period too. I know people hate hearing this, cause you know to do it, but call your doc just to make sure everything is ok. Chances are, you'll be fine. Good luck.
