Still red blood 4 weeks post childbirth
Hi all!!
I had a caesarian almost 4 weeks ago,which went very well.My only concern is that I am still having a bright red vaginal bleed,but it is fairly light.It sometimes dissapears for a day,then comes back again.I am breastfeeding every +- 3 hours.Please advise if this is normal or not?
Thank you!!

You should not be having red blood a month after delivery. It does not sound too serious, but I would suggest that you contact your gynaecologist and discuss it with him/her.
