    Default Still Bleeding after Birth - 1YEAR!

    So my sister (not me seriously), had a baby almost a year ago and is still bleeding. I told her to go to the doctors, but she is refusing. She is also losing a lot of weight at 5'10 she weights about 44 kilos. Its so sad, but she isnt unhealthy, she eats and she is active enough to burn off what she eats (a lot of junk). She is still breast feeding also.
    Anyone else heard of prolonged bleeding after birth? I bled for 4 months with my daughter, but it wasnt too heavy to worry about. At first we thought its just the family, and maybe we take longer, but 1 year seems too much. She also has this odd hole in her belly, the size of a golf ball, which is really soft to touch. It looks like a dent. Is this weird? Anyone got a clue?

    Oh gosh y won't she go to the drs?! My first guess would be that not all the placenta was birthed and as for the soft spot..... Her tummy muscles didn't join back up properly?

I'd be organizing her to get to a dr asap! Babysit her child, book in with a womens health dr and even drive her there!

    She is seriously underweight for her height.
    Bleeding one year later is not normal.
    She needs to see a doctor ASAP. Can you take her? Can her partner take her? Parents? Someone needs to have a serious talk with her.

    Wow. That's shocking. I'm about the same height and usually sit around 49-55kg which still isn't good enough for the height. I bled for about 12weeks with my first. But it all went normal.

    Go to her house and have one of those house doctors come over. If she won't go, bring it to her.

    That's crazy...why won't she go to the dr's? None of that sounds normal or healthy. You need to wake her up. Perhaps ask her what will happen to her bub if something happens to her because she has been so irresponsible with her health?

    I had heavy bleeding for 10 weeks after my c-section and the cause was rpoc which led to a serious infection, you really should insist that she get it checked out.

    I wish I could take her, she lives in another state to me. My mother is going to take her next week when she visits her. I had no idea it was still going on, she is one of those people who just ignore things and hope it goes away. Quite annoying really, but we are all very very worried about her now. Her eldest child is 5, and she used him as an excuse to not see the Drs. Its always next week. She is also very depressed at the moment, so I think she doesnt care about whats happening or what will happen. :-(

    Not only is it not good for her, how on earth could she put up with bleeding for so long? I bled for 6 weeks after DD and man was I over it by the time it stopped.

    <--- if I had been bleeding that long!
