  • If you are clotting and/or cramping....not normal....if it's light/ sometimes brown/ sometimes's probably okay. If you are clotting/cramping or having bright red bleeding, call the doctor.

  • nothing, you will eventually stop. its just going to be really annoying until then. if it gets worse (other then when you actually might be on your period) go into the dr.

  • Yeah, after a baby you can bleed anywhere from 6-8 weeks. It's normal, there's nothing you can do.

  • Perfectly normal. The doctors usually give an average of 6 weeks for the bleeding to stop, but that's an average. Some women stop just 4 weeks later, others take 8 or 10... I quit bleeding at 6 weeks to the day with both of my boys...

    HOWEVER, if you are experiencing heavy bleeding (more than a pad an hour) or large clots, you should call your doctor.

  • My friend bled for about 7 weeks like she would on a normal period, especially when she urinated. It drove her crazy but her doc said everything was ok and that some women bleed heavier/longer than others. She did tell her that if she was passing really large clots then she should let her, the doc, know. I think she really tapered off around 2 months or so.
