Why is my period sooooo long?

This is my 1st period since giving birth. I stopped exclusively BF and of course got my 1st period. However, it's day 7 and I still have light bleeding. Is this normal for the 1st period?

  • My first period after my babies lasted a couple of weeks. I think if it goes for longer than 10 days I'd see my doc :)

  • I don't know. If you are still bleeding on Monday, I would call the dr just to see if they know a reason. It could be that since you haven't had a period in so long that you are just going to bleed a little more. Hopefully it will go away soon.
