I don't know about anybody else but this bleeding is nothing like a period nor does it smell like a period I for the first week would chang my pad every half hour which is 2 28 packs a day (and took three showers a day) after a week it slowed to changing every hour which is still a little less then 1 28 pack a day, by three weeks it was just yellow discharge mixed with little blood and I used a box of 40 panty liners for the week and then it was over, with a total of 4 weeks of bleeding /spotting I went through an estimation of 800

So in other words, we are going to need a shitload of pads! Thanks for the fair warning. I'll start stocking up now...maybe I will go buy some new panties as well!

I'm sorry I don't think people are misinforming anyone. Everyone's body is different and my bleeding was extremely light. It actually stopped after about 2 weeks.

as you said the bleeding is diffrent for everyone theirs might have been lighter therefor they used less.i bled pretty lightly and didnt use nearly as many as you.so everyone is diffrent they probaly werent giving bad advice just their own experience.

I only used like one bag of pads total. I changed them every two hours because I was hardly bleeding at all, and then I wore pantiliners for a few days, then that was it.

Well, not everyone is the same. I didn't even bleed as heavy as my period and it only lasted 3 weeks. It was a very very light flow and didn't even require a very thick pad.



Everyone is different and each pregnancy is different!

I didnt use a whole bag of pads because I got some of those super huge ones fromt the hospital. But like I said, my bleeding was sooo light. I am a clean person and I didnt bleed on myself lol.
