    a couple of post partum questions

    Advertisements
    1. How long did it take for you to stop bleeding down there?

    2. When did your linea nigra finally go away?

    1. With ODS it was about 2 weeks. With YDS though it was almost 6 weeks.

    2. After maybe a month, mine was never really pronounced though.

    1. About 2-3 weeks

    2. Still hasn't. Aidan is 17w5d. I'm not sure it's ever going to go away

    Ya I'm still bleeding pretty good too, I'm just wondering if its gonna stop before my 6 week pp appointment. I still have 3 weeks before I go, but still, I wonder lol! My linea nigra was pretty pronounced so I wonder if mine will fade over time. I didn't get any stretchmarks though so maybe that's the trade off

    I bled for about 8 weeks. I stopped bleeding daily around 4 weeks, and then every week after I'd start bleeding again for about 4-5 days (almost like a period...weekly ).

    I'm 3 months PP and my linea negra is still there, but definitely lighter. I know a women who it took over a year for it to go away completely and another that it never went away.

    I stopped bleeding daily at two weeks (it was really light after day 4 though) but did have a day or two of spotting after that so I didn't stop wearing a pad until 3 weeks out of sheer fear.

    I never got the linea nigra.

    I still have my linea negra. That can take a few months. Mine actually is darker and more noticeable port partum than during pregnancy. I barely noticed it until after the kids were born.
