  • Yes, it probably means that you overdid it that day. I bled for 5 weeks!!!

  • Yes, that's normal. It may be like that for a few more weeks. Your uterus is shrinking back down to normal size, so it will take a while to heal completely. I think I bled for like 5 weeks.

  • For my first 4 it was around 1-2 weeks, I think.  This last time I bled for 5 weeks and it was finally starting to stop and BAM my period started.  I was so ticked, lol.  But once that was over it finally stopped all together.
