I'm 15 days postpartum and I'm still bleeding very heavily. I was passing golf ball and larger size clots at the hospital so they kept me an extra day because with my 1st birth I had a severe postpartum hemmoragh and my doctor said in very rare cases women can hemmoragh days or even weeks after giving birth. She said it's extremely rare but so was the severity of my pph the 1st time.
Anyway I started passing clots again 2 days ago. Then yesterday the bleeding turned dark like the end of a period but today it's back to the bright red color and very heavy again.
I'm currently on my 5th pack of pads (45 pad pack) since I've been home. My doc said to nurse on demand to decrease bleeding and I have been but it's still heavy.
Is all this normal?
I was supposed to have my 2 week postpartum check up this past week but the doc had an emergency so they rescheduled it for this next week.
Thanks in advance..
