  • Go to a clinic and see if you can get on birth control-it may interfere with breast feeding but I had to get bc to stop my bleeding after my daughter. I bled for four months and finally said enough is enough and bc was the only thing that worked. As far as the color-I am not sure-I would deffinately ask. Can you call your ob and ask a nurse or something-you dont have to go in, just ask to get an idea of what you should do.

  • It just sounds weird the dark blood you may be fighting an infection of some sort i've never heard of anyone having dark blood-period. Is it dry like?Maybe it's just ending again or something but you see when it comes to having a C-section and just having it done you don't wanna screw around w/ your health ever.

  • Maybe give it a day and see but if it gets heavier or u start to hurt go to the doc.
