    Question How long...

    Advertisements
    did you bleed after you delivered? I had Dawson via C-section and bled a lot the first week or so then it really tapered off. I'm almost 3 weeks post partum and i'm barely bleeding, if at all. It is at the annoying "do nothing until you decide to not wear a pad for all of 10 minutes" stage.

    Just curious how long to expect this....

    I had my daughter vaginally and I bleed for three weeks after I delivered and then it was over. Three weeks is normally when it stops six weeks is normally the max. So if you are not bleeding the next couple of days I do not believe you will need the pad anymore but just wait a few days just in case.

    #1,2 and 3 I bled for 3 weeks, then started a period right at the 4th week. #4, I bled for 3 months + and then with #5, I bled for a minimum 6 weeks but got put on BC to stop it and regulate myself. It worked.
