PV Bleed after C/Section - How long ?
I had a baby via c/s 2 weeks ago.

I was bleeding "normally" for the 1st week, it then stopped completely and has now started again 3 days ago - it is about as heavy as it was in hospital.

Is this normal ?

I am also breast feeding - would this influence the bleeding?

Your feedback would be appreciated.

Thank you.

This is within normal limits. See what happens in the next week or two.
