2nd pp period, very heavy bleeding. Anyone relate?

Had a ces., still bfing, had first period last month. Long and heavy. This one is very heavy (soaking pad in 2 hours) and wearing me out. I've never had a period this heavy that I can recall. Can't find anything stating it's normal for your body to do this or not. Just curious before I call the nurse.

  • I had the same thing. I too had a c-section and BF. My first three or four periods were REALLY heavy-so bad I was exhausted and could barely leave the house bc I was changing a tampon and pad so often. I was told it was my body adjusting to everything and it is not that bad anymore. It is heavier than before baby but not as bad as right after now.

  • I had a c-section plus I breastfed for 8 months. I didn't get my period back until 9 mos PP. I guess I was lucky. But when my periods did return, they were the same as they were before I had my son.

  • Thanks. Yah last month was month #11. So it's been a while. I hate body adjusting crap.
