it's been almost 5 weeks since i have given birth to my son. i stopped bleeding about a week and a half ago but this morning i noticed a thicker discharge with some blood in it. should i be worried or is this normal? could it be my uterus still shrinking down cuz i still have minor pain in my stomach.

  • Ask your doctor at your post check up, at 6 weeks. If the pain in unbearable, or you notice a bad smell, call the doctor immediately.

    However bleeding after pregnancy can last 6-8 weeks after.

  • It is normal, it could be your uterus shrinking. If it gets worse you may want to go to the doctor and get checked out, if nothing else if you are concerned then give the doctor a call.
