  • I did for about 4 weeks. Unless there is a significant increase in the amont of blood or there is an odor to it than I wouldn't worry

  • It is different fro everyone. I only had a bleed for a week half with my first and just about 2 weeks with my second. If all the sudden it is really heavy or blood clots that are bigger then a half dollar. Then you need to go in. If you are worried or concerned give your Dr a call.

  • I only bled for four and a half weeks. It all depends on your body and how your body handles it. Everyone is different and unless your soaking more than one pad in an hour than you should be fine to not worry about bad things.
