Bleeding after C-section. Megan TTC since Feb 2016; 2 kids; 1 angel baby; Prince Frederick, Maryland 2555 posts

I had my C-section back on December 10th. I've been bleeding on and off since then and it was never heavy bleeding even the day after the C-section. Is it normal to stop bleeding days at a time and then bleed for maybe a day or two and it stop again? The blood is bright red and I haven't been passing any clots. I am exclusively breastfeeding my daughter, would that have anything to do with it?

I had a csection Nov. 2nd and my bleeding did that all the time. It would get me all excited when I thought it would stop, and then super sad again. It just stopped 2 days ago... 8.5 weeks of bleeding was ridiculous.

My bleeding stopped for almost a week, now it's back, very red, clotting and heavy. I gave birth Dec 8th

I did not have a c-section but I did have my son on Dec 10th and I am still bleeding. For the first 2 weeks it was like a light period. Now it is on and off I can go a day or 2 with nothing and then it starts again. But it just enough to get on my nerves like spotting when I go to the bathroom. Now I am cramping like I am going to start my period. It is driving me crazy.

Its normal. Its also normal to start passing minor clots after a few weeks too. I freaked out when I started passing golf ball sized clots again after I stopped bleeding. OB said its normal and not to worry.

Same thing is going on with me :? I don't understand because with my first I bled/had clots very bad, this one is like, mixed with (TMI) discharge, mine isn't bright red though, agh it's annoying because I woke up this morning and thought I had my period, but nope back to the same crap...no clots for me either! I'm mix feeding so I don't know if that has anything to do with it..
