  • I bled for 5 weeks with my 1st and 6 weeks with my second. It depends on the person. I would say that it is normal, but if it continues much longer, I would have it checked out. Good luck!

  • are you bleeding heavily? I def dont think it should be alot of blood. Call your Dr. to make sure

  • yep, and if you had stopped or had the discharge change to the yellow or white, and then start again, you could be having your period. Mine started within days of me stopping bleeding.

  • I bled for 4 or 5 months. It just really depends on the person my doctor said and your body regulating itself.
