  • Yes. I've had two and the postpartum bleeding is the same as for a vaginal delivery. Only no tearing. :P

  • Yes, but I went about a week. It wasn't as bad as I thought. Everyone's different.

  • I didn't. I bled for about 2 weeks and that was it. Then about 6 weeks later, I started my "normal" cycle.

  • First time no..I bled for about 3 weeks I think..the second time I bled a lot longer I think it was 6 to 8 weeks and the last time I bled for about 4 weeks.

    So it varies and depends I think it depends on how much they "suction" out when they do the section.

  • yes...plus you are recovering from surgery...which can makes everything a little harder, from breastfeeding to sleeping. Avoid it if you don't NEED one!
