Period (TMI)

Is it normal for your first period after having the baby to be super heavy? I woke up today with blood all over my sheets so I had to use a towel until I got in the shower! Also there was clumps. I dont know if I should call the doc or its normal? thanks!

  • How old is your baby? Also, I believe I was always told if you are soaking a pad an hour, then you need to call the dr. Good luck

  • the rule is if you soak through more than one pad an hour you need to call the doctor... if you are still concious or 911 if you are not concious enough to drive.

  • I soaked thru an entire mattress after my last little one but I would call my OB and explain what is going on to a nurse. They may want you to come in to check or they may be able to ease our mind over the phone. Unless of course you are soaking thru a pad in less than an hour then you need to go the ER.
