  • about 3 weeks with spotting off and on for another 3 weeks.
    Normally if your bleeding slows them pucks up, it means you are doing too much. Or since you are 5 weeks already and if you are not breastfeeding, I might even think it could be your first period.

  • I bled lightly for 8 weeks. It is normal to bleed for 4-6 weeks. If you haven't stopped by your 6 week check up let your doctor know.
    If you start to bleed bright red or heavily (after it has lightened and gone brown) you should see your doctor right away.

  • For me,it stopped 2 weeks later.Just keep waiting.If it continues after about 3-4 weeks,you should go to a doctor to get that checked out.

  • 4-6 weeks is the range I was told with both of my children, one vaginal and one c section.

  • Any time between 5 and 8 is considered normal... I stopped at 6 weeks with both of mine.
