  • Yes, I had my son 3 weeks ago also and I'm still bleeding off and on. My stomach is still a little tender will go away in time.

  • Yes. Post-partum bleeding can last up to 6 or 8 weeks; it varies with each woman and each pregnancy. And the tenderness will go away as your uterus shrinks back to its pre-pregnancy size, which can also take up to 6 or 8 weeks. The uterine contractions are what's causing both of these, so they'll probably stop at about the same time. After that, you should be as good as new. :)
