I am almost 4 weeks post partum, and am still bleeding quite heavily. The bleeding had slowed down some about a week to ten days after giving birth, but then began to get heavier again. Then, within the past week, its gone from dark brown to brighter red and mucous-y, and just in the past couple of days, I've had some pretty major clots. Tonight I passed a really big one, and I'm getting quite concerned. I'm saturating at least 5 to 6 super absorbency "overnight" maxi-pads per day. I'd already decided I was going to call my doc on monday, but the huge clot tonight really has me freaked out, and I'm not sure if I should try to get some more immediate attention over the weekend...
