  • I was always told that if you have to change your pad once an hour or more you need to call your doctor.

  • I would call a doctor.
    Mine has always said that any bleeding soaks a pad in an hour is too much. And if you ever pass a clot bigger than a grape to call.
    I am sorry for your loss.

    Please let us know what you decide to do.

  • That isn't good... you need to call your doctor or go to the E.R. if you can't get a hold of him... my mom said she had a d&c and you should NOT bleed that heavily.

    Is the blood a darkish brown color or is it bright red?

  • If you've been bleeding heavy for 5 days you are already at risk for blood loss, hypovolemia, and even shock. I don't want to scare you, but your intuition is correct, this is serious. My recommendation would be not to wait to call your doc, but to go to ER tonight. If you still have doubts, make a quick phone call to the ER. You should be able to talk to a nurse there and she will probably tell you to come right in.
    P.S. I'm a nurse.

  • You are not bleeding because you are backed up...I have never even heard anything so ridiculous...Sorry to be blunt. Unless it was hemorrhoids which don't occur in the vagina.

    I am changing my advice since your last post. GO TO THE ER. Please...even if you family is rude to you about it.

  • Man, don't wait... you need to go to the E.R... You shouldn't be bleeding like that especially with the blood clots.... have you called your doctor at all in these five days that you've been bleeding??
