  • you should NOT of gotten the shot that early i got my shot exactly 4 weeks after i had my son and it messed me up SO BAD!! I never stopped my postpartum bleeding and i was just abuot to start my period and it caused me to bleed so much worse. My doctor at that time was a mdicaid doctor so i went back to my old doctor and he gave me an vaginal sonogram and we found out that my menstral something (idk what its called) is double the size it should be. So my doctor told me I'll prolly be bleeding for the next 3-4 months. Just have your doctor or a different doctor check you out inside?! Hope your luck is better than mine was haha.

  • whether c/section or vaginal birth, the first real period can be heavy. Hormones are settling

  • As long as you are not passing clots, you are ok. But if you'd rather be safe than sorry call your OB/Gyn.
