I delievered almost 4 weeks ago and i'm still bleeding.
At first it was heavy but normal dark red and then the middle of the second week it tapered off into the pink and brown as expected and had almost stopped completely. Then it got bright red again but hasn't been heavy at all. Just a continual bright red since week 2.
I called Labor & Delivery twice to ask nurses if i should be concerned and they told me just to take it easy. There is no reason to be worried unless i'm soaking pads.
Thing is, i'm taking it easy and have been. I take my little one for a walk once or twice a day for an hour but thats it. Besides that i'm feeding him or he's asleep on me.
I don't have an OB/GYN to call because he was the Pediatrician who botched his circumcision and i'm on Medicaid so most OB/GYN's only take that if you're pregnant, so i'm having trouble finding someone to even see me for my 6 week check up let alone answer a question.
From what i've read it says that these symptoms can mean that there still might be parts of the placenta inside and can only be determined by a physical exam.
