Postpartum question...

I passed a clot this morning that was a little bigger than a golf ball. I've also had a headache all day today, and my abdomen and lower back are hurting. Should I call my doctor, or is this normal...this is my 3rd delivery?

I kept passing clots and had to get put on some meds to break them up. But I had a c-section.. After I started the meds I passed one that was the size of a baseball. Maybe just call your doctor and ask..

How many days PP are you? I know I passed some pretty big clots for a few days after delivery. If you're not feeling well, you should call your doctor.

i never passes any clots after delivery so i dont know if its normal or not, but im the type of person that always says better safe than sorry, so i would just call ur doctor, it wont hurt anything and youll get peace of mind
