Did anyone else have post partum bleeding that lasted forever?

I feel like I'm in the middle of the world's longest period. I wasn't able to breast feed so I know that the shrinking of my uterus is taking longer, but I need some light at the end of the tunnel. . . Anyone else go through this?

  • When I had my daughter I bled for 6 weeks. It can take a little while. I think they say for as long as 6-8 weeks.

  • yep I had 8 weeks are heavy clotty dark red bleeding. All three times I had to take several really strong hormone pills to stop. The last time I ended up getting a D and C at 9 weeks.

  • wow, that sucks. I am going on 10 weeks now. When I asked my doctor, he said that realistically I could go for another month. I am so sick of this!
