    Default when did ur after birth bleeding stop?

    my baby is 4 weeks old and im wondering when the bleeding stops? i had a c-section so unsure if it differs from vaginal birth.
    I seem to be only bleeding a little only when i feed?!? and it's watery brown colour?!
    Also, anyone elses dh really really annoyingly toey, hastling you to dtd all of a sudden?! like an annoying little yapping puppy. GO AWAY!

    Very normal for this to happen during feeds, the feeding is stimulating your uterus which causes it to contract down hence expelling anything inside the uterus.

    My bleeding stopped at about 8 weeks but for the last 4 it was light watery brown, light enough that a liner was sufficient.
    I had a vaginal birth with large PPH and 3rd degree tear but was told this had no affect on pp bleeding.
    Re toey DH tell him it's off limits but other than that I can't help sorry lol

    I think I bled for about the standard 6 weeks on-and-off. Most of it was fairly light, and sometimes it would stop a few days then start up again.

    It's quite normal to bleed for up to about 6 weeks.

    I had a vaginal birth and my bleedig completely finished by about 7 weeks, but after 5 weeks it was quite light. It sounds pretty normal for you to be only bleeding when you feed, as your uterus contracts during feeds.

    I had an emergency c-section & bled for about 9 weeks from memory. I didn't know you could bleed that long afterwards.

    My DH was keen to dtd (always is), but I made him wait until I felt ready.

    Default Re: when did ur after birth bleeding stop?

    I had a c-section and bled for about 4 weeks, the last 2 weeks generally only after feeding or doing a bit tip much activity the day before.
