How long did it take for you to stop bleeding...

AFter you had your child? I thought for sure I'd be done by now but I'm not. I'm not in any pain, I just wish it would stop.

  • 3 weeks both times.   


    Average is 3 - 6 weeks, if you breastfeed, you stop sooner.

  • It seemed like FOREVER! But it was about 3-4 or 5 weeks. I got an IUD put in at 6weeks.

  • I think that both times I finally quit bleeding a couple days before my 6 week check-up. It's like all 9 months of not having a period come back to haunt you.
