Heavy Period 5 months after c section? (TMI!)

I had a c section almost 5 months ago with my first baby. I'm on depo, but went off it this month for insurance issues (will go back in december.) After the baby i had a lot of bleeding which they said was normal, but now I have my period (first one since bleeding from pregnancy stopped). It's really really heavy and there seems to be a lot of excess tissue coming away with my tampons. Is this normal?

  • Yes, it's normal because you just had a baby and came off birth control. My period are still a lot heavier (2 years after having DD) then before I had a baby.
