I just got my first period 4 days ago which was 5 weeks after giving birth to my little girl. i had the lochia for 3 weeks and then it stoppedfor 2 weeks. i then started to have bad lower back pain and cramping and then 2 days later started bleeding. The cramping and bleeding is just like a period so i feel like it is my period.
The period is really heavy. today is day 5 of the period and this morning when i went to the bathroom i passed a couple of large blood clots. i went back to bed for 4 hours and when i woke up to pee again the same thing happened. i haven't had any more real large blood clots today but small ones. my period is still heavy and not tapering off any. i was just wanting to know if this might be normal since this is my first real period after child birth or do i need to be concerned. I called the dr. today to check but they did not call me back. if anyone could help me i would really appreciate it.
