I gave birth on Friday evening and ended up with a 2nd degree tear at the perineum.
My blood loss has decreased to a "comfortable" rate, but I'm still feeling so tender, I checked my stitches with a mirror this evening straight after my shower.
It appears that almost all my blood loss is coming from the tear wound, rather than being discharge.
I thought that would have stopped by now (5 days post partum).
Does anyone know how long the wound should bleed? I don't want to panic but it seems unusual...
