  • Yes. It is normal to bleed for about 6 weeks. Not everyone does, but usually everyone stops by about 6 weeks regarless of how you delivered.

  • Yes. But if you are concerned about the amount of blood, I would consult your doctor.

  • Yes, it's normal. My dd is 7 weeks old & I just stopped bleeding 2 days ago (I also had a C-Section). If your really concerned though, ask your Dr.

  • my son is 3 months old and I'm still bleeding. I had my son natural thought and had a pretty bad delivery. They pretty much forced me to have my son natural which later on they were regretting. By the way have you got on birth control yet because that could also be the cause?

  • What's normal? I bled for 9 weeks with my last baby, which happened to be a c-section. My OB said it was normal.

  • Wow I had a c-section and I never bled as long as everyone else who has replied I bled for barely 2 weeks.......

  • yep, and theres more where that came from. Are you breastfeeding? It would help speed it along.

  • I don't know if it is "normal", but I do know that with my 2nd c-section I was still bleeding fter 6 weeks, not heavily but some. My ob/gyn said that I should have stopped by then and decided to do a d&c.

  • ya anything up to 6 weeks is normal. (i bled for 5 weeks with my first and it was vaginal) as long as it doesn't get worse then u should be ok. i know it's annoying and messy but at least it'll be fine.
