  • Yep, up to 6 or even 7 weeks is totally normal. I bled a full 6 weeks, then went jogging and it started right back up again lol.

  • I bleed about 3 weeks, but the average is about 6 weeks. I've known a couple of women who bled for 8 weeks. In general, the first couple weeks are the heaviest, and it tapers off after that.

  • It really depends on your body. ALmost all women bleed no more than 6 weeks. Some tho can bleed longer. With my first I bled for 3 months :( It was horrible With my second I bled 4 weeks.

  • I bleed for almost 4 months because I think I had my period in there somewhere as well.
