I stopped passing small clots at 1 weeks post and completely stopped bleeding at 2.5 weeks post. Now at 5 weeks post I have gotten my first i'd say period and am bleeding heavily. Last night I even had this snotty looking discharge that was whiteish and now tonight I am passing clots. 1 that was even a bit bigger than a quarter. The blood is deep red in the clot and bright red otherwise. My mom says this is normal but im a bit worried. What do you think?

  • WOW YOU STOPPED BLEEDING FAST I BLED FOR LIKE 4-5 WEEKS AFTER I HAD MY BABIES & ONLY A FEW SMALL BLOOD CLOTS EACH TIME. IF YOU ARE STILL CLOTTING YOU SHOULD GO TO THE DR.
