    How long did your PP bleeding last?

    Not having a vaginal birth in 4 years I forgot about this not so lovely aspect of them and have forgotten about how long this lasts.

    Tmi...but wearing a pad every day for 2 straight weeks so far is driving me nuts and starting to chaf. It is such a reminder about why I prefer tampons. Ugh.

    Both times it lasted for 5w, two weeks of solid bleeding and then three of on and off heavier-than-spotting.

    After wearing the yucky pads with Wyatt and getting, essentially, diaper rash, I went with cloth pads this go around and it was so much nicer.

    Even with my csection I still bled for at least 6 weeks. I was miserable.

    I bled for 6 weeks. God that was awful and I had forgot about it until you mentioned it.

    but thanks! I need to add that to my list of reason to keep my mirena in the full 5 years.

    Ugh I am not looking forward to 6 weeks of this. Blarg. So glad I am never doing this again.

    I bled for like a week with my CS. I think that was the only upside to it.

    With Rylee and Kaitlyn it only lasted about a week but with Ziva it was about 2 or 3 weeks and it was light.

    My experience was like that, about 1 week of heavy then 3-5 days of light, then it stopped completely. Hopefully it stops soon!!
