How long does your first period last for after having a baby?
A Parent asks, I had a c-section 10 weeks ago and had the normal bleeding after a pregnancy for about 3 weeks. On the 21 Nov i got my first period after having the baby and so far it has lasted 3 and a half weeks. Before i became pregnant it only use to last about 4 days. I started back on the pill on the 21 Nov as well. I am not breastfeeding. Has this happened with anyone else? And is there anything i can take to stop the bleeding if i go to the doctors?
I did go to the doctors on the 4th dec and he did say if it hasn’t stopped in another 2 weeks to come back. I just really thought it would have stopped by now. And i was interested in how other people’s was?
