How long until this bleeding stops! (After labor)

I had my baby girl on May 2nd and I know it hasn't been THAT long, but I'm just wondering when it's supposed to stop??? This is my first baby so I have no idea

bleh, that was me with my first. 4 weeks of bleeding in july! lol

Quoting MeghMirab:

It's different for everyone. I bled for over a month. I felt it was cleansing though. Not too sure if I'm going to feel that way this time since it will be in the summer. lol I cannot imagine wearing a big huge mattress between my legs AND shorts. Ha! That's going to look "so hot." (:

My second was not even a week of bleeding
We won't discuss my first because depo had a lot to do with how long i bled.

It can be up to ten weeks if you are too active and not healed.

Anywhere between 4 to 6 weeks. That is why the first check up after baby, for you, is 6 weeks after you have baby.

Ugh I bled for almost 4 months straight... even tho I was breastfeeding they said I was menstruating back to back... I guess I'm really fertile?

I also had a c section, maybe it was blood from that?? Idk after my jayjay was so tight I couldn't have sex without pain

Delivered 4/14 and I'm still bleeding, the first week or two are the heaviest then it'll be off and on sporadically

Lightened up after a couple weeks, didn't stop completely until a month later.
