    Default How long is it normal to beed for after birth?

    My bub is a month old and i am still bleeding. It is light but still very much there and starting to really annoy me. Is this normal?
    I can't remember how long i bled with my other children.

    I only bled for 2 to 3 weeks with my first 3 kids but just under 6 weeks with my fourth. It was a bit of a shock and very annoying after having relatively short bleeds previously. Hope it eases off for you soon.

    My little one is 7 weeks and I've only stopped maternity pads this week, assuming still a few more weeks till its finished. I guess as long as its getting lighter that's normal. If its heavier or clotting I'd be seeing your Dr.

    First two were both full 6 weeks for me, DD2 was 8 weeks but GP said it was because I had an infection from retained membranes and it stopped a few days after I started antibiotics.

    I bled long with each child (10 weeks with no5 from memory) no6 they gave me a bag of syntocinon after his birth. Wow what a difference, only light bleeding for 10 days.
