Avatar n tn I had a c-section Jan 10 bleed heavy for 3 days and "spotted" for 2 weeks. My period restarted on Feb. 18, I remember because that was suppose to be my husband and mine "big" day. My mom took the baby, it was my birthday and I was given the go ahead from the dr. to resume all activities...............I WAS SO MAD!!!!!!!!! So to answer your question, about 6 weeks after you had the c-section,...but everyone is different.
Avatar n tn Is there certain things I need to bring to the hospital that I wouldn't need for a natural birth? After your c-section you go to recovery right, is your baby in there with you or in the nursery? I just want all the info I can incase my little girl woun't turn. thanks everyone.. Oh and how long do you stay in the hospital for?
Avatar f tn I had a c section on February 12, 2009, and I skip March with my perod and it is April now and I am now having my first good period after surgery. I am on my third day on my period and it is heavy....what is normal and what is abnormal? All help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn After my section my tummy was only sore and tender for about 5/6 wks i got my first period 7wks after my section and it was only slightly heavier than normal and didnt cause me any discomfort other than slight cramps and every period after that was like a regular period so i would go and see your doctor and get checked out because it doesnt sound normal to me after all its been about 10 wks since your section you should be alot more comfortable by now take care and good luck
Avatar f tn How long does the bleeding from the vagina last after a c-section? I know it's different for everyone, but I'm looking for a rough estimate I guess. I know after my vaginal delivery with my first pregnancy the bleeding went on weeks, and I'm just not sure if the bleeding lasts about the same with c-sections..
Avatar n tn HI, I just had my 1st C-section after having a vaginal birth 6 years ago, As scared as I was, it turned out to be "not so bad". Immediately after the surgery I had NO bleeding. then as soon as I got home 4 days later I started bleeding alot. Now 13 days after coming home, I'm wondering if its ever gonna stop. I noticed that my stomach hurts when I nurse and I thought that was a good thing, but now I just have random pains between my stomach and my incision.

Avatar n tn I had a c- section About 5 months ago and My period since then has gone about a month each time. there has only been 2 weeks between Feb and July that haven't been bleeding , its extremely heavy, clotting, and soak about 2 pads an hour. Every time I go to the doctor I am not bleeding an he can't see what I am talking about.
1355867 tn?1277225199 My wife has started bleeding almost 8 months after her C-section. She has been currently breast feeding and was told by a Doctor that she shouldn't be having a period....her blood is very heavy and bright red ..no clots or cramping...The insicion it self has always hurt..it's healed up,but bumpy and bothers her when touched.. Is this normal for a 1st time C-section mother? Thank you, Worried Father.
8524235 tn?1406161222 After my c section I bled for half the time as if having birth vaginally. I would say probably 3 weeks maybe 4 but no longer.
Avatar n tn i had my son march 24th 2008 by c-section, bled for three weeks, then stopped and got a very heavy period two weeks after that.. however, im overdue for another one and still have not got it. i dont think im pregnant again because we have been using condoms or withdrawl. has anyone answered on how long it takes for it to get normal?
Avatar f tn So I am going in Friday morning for my c-section and I am curious as to postpartum bleeding after a c-section and will I still have postpartum bleeding even though I'm not delivering vaginally? If so about how long will it last?
550943 tn?1330731180 It's probably a good idea to get checked out by the doctor just in case. I bled on and off after my c-section for about 8 weeks, but I never went more than a few days before starting again. With my daughter I bled on and off for 11 weeks and again only a few days in between when I stopped. I'm not sure why you would be bleeding so much after having stopped for 4 weeks.
Avatar f tn Yes, I think its your period, I was bleeding for 6 weeks, then stopped for 3 days and started bleeding again, my Dr said it could be my period, for u having bleeding 3 weeks after it stopped its your period probably, especially when u r not exclusively breastfeeding, with my first I had my period at 6 months postpartum when I introduced solids, does it feel like your normal period?
Avatar f tn Any mommys that have had a c section before I really need help! I had one tomorrow will be a week ago and I am still in severe pain. I can't get up without help it hurts to go to pee and I'm beyond swollen! My lower abdomen is bigger than it was when I had her and it's rock hard! My skin is also red from right above the incision to above my belly button! My stretch marks and the scar from my belly button ring are swollen out!
8101930 tn?1420005056 So I had my son by c section on Nov 29th. I bled heavy at first then lighter for about 4 weeks. Then I started bleeding again at 6 weeks and again at 8 weeks. And now I started bleeding again today at 9 weeks. It's not super heavy but a medium flow and only lasts a couple days. I'm Just wondering if this is normal?? I asked my doctor at my 6 week check up and she said it's normal but I'm just concerned.
Avatar f tn I too, had bleeding for about 6 Months on and off after my C-Section and the Dr. said it was normal! If you don't mind me asking how did you loose your Baby Girl? What went wrong?
Avatar m tn the pain is not consistent and it sort of comes and go, especially when I sit for a long period of time. I swear having a c-section is quite annoying,...I haven't even been able to really enjoy my baby cuz I feel so uncomfortable. Thank Goodness my Dh has been home helping change diapers and picking things up.
Avatar n tn Have any you experienced pain after c-section - I'm talking about TWO YEARS later. My child will be 2 later this month. I was in constant pain, esp. at the incision site on the left side, for the first 6 mos, my ob thought it might be a internal suture that didn't disolve. The pain went away but then came back big time more than a year later. I've had several sonograms and an MRI - my ob is stumped.
8924846 tn?1410576501 Do you still bleed/discharge from your vagina after a c section? Kinda just randomly thought about it. Because unless they scoop everything out of your uterus you would still have the blood/lining and everything to dispell from your body. So would you still bleed like you would from a vaginal birth?
Avatar f tn i have a very heavy period, and it will be six weeks after i delivered my still born baby on may 7th, is it ok? the bleeding did not stopped since monday and did not even get lighter. do i wioll have my period next month in the same time, so i will conceive this month or what?
Avatar n tn I have a c-section on Wed morning due to my baby being breeched. I am not sure what to expect since my first child was a vaginal delivery. Do you bleed from "down below" after a c-section like a period? Also, did it bother any of you to wear pajama pants in the hospital after your surgery? I didn't know if the incision would be so tender pants would hurt to I really don't have any nightgowns and hate to buy one just for that. Did you get sick from the pain meds?
Avatar n tn I have had the same pain, in my lower right side, after my c-section 6 years ago. It comes and goes but it feels like a sharp pain if I turn to fast to get up, etc..mostly around my period. Was better when on birth control. Now I am pregnant again, 4 months and the pain is very severe. It also radiates across my entire lower stomach. I am also getting bad back pain to the point where I can't sleep.
1416390 tn?1333905204 I had a c section 20 mos ago. since then my periods have been really heavy and there is always a day I seem to gush blood. Well- my period came a week early this month and last night I seemed to have passed a lot of blood- that seemed really red. Now that I am up it does not seem to be flowing so strong. I don't have any pain- slight cramping. I am not sure whether I should go to the ER or not- hate to go if it is just my period! Just seems odd there was so, so much.
Avatar n tn Your period might be heavy one month and very light the next. Your body's trying to get back to its normal self so that will happen. Some even miss a month. Btw, I also got mine 16 weeks PP. Good luck.
