I gave birth to my son 9 weeks ago, and my bleeding hasn’t stopped, and it’s not getting any lighter either. I was wondering if any other mums had this same problem. And what was the cause of it, or what did the doctors do?

  • Definitely speak to your doctor. Hope they will have an answer for you as I do not think this is normal x

  • Mine lasted 7 weeks then I got a period right after.

  • I can’t remember how long I bled for. Are you breastfeeding? I’d talk to your health care nurse if you have one, or pop in to the doctor. Hope all is well!

  • For your own peace of mind please visit your doctor or specialist.. Everyone is different. I think the bleeding should be easing off now.

  • It should slow down, felt like forever, sounds like you need to talk to a midwife to be sure it is normal

  • go speak to a gp. Normally you can bleed heavily for 6weeks but remember everyone is different, some people barley bleed others are very heavy.

  • everyone is wondering how you turned out

  • I would go to the doctor and get it checked out to make sure everything is okay.

  • I hope you went to the Dr. and got this sorted. would be nice to hear back from you what happened.

  • Definately go back to your dr for advice

  • you may need to go on birth control if your not breasfeeding to help slow it down, or you could need a clean up

  • How has it turned out for you

  • i hope it has stopped now?

  • You need to go back to the doctor, you may have some type of infection or something needs to be fixed to stop the bleeding.

  • I’d get to the doctor for a check. Better than worrying and you might get run down which you don’t need with a new baby.
