Am interested to hear from others that have suffered secondary post partum bleeding - what caused it, how did you investigate it, how did you treat it & did it affect your body/future pregnancies?

What is it? I had post partum haemorrhaging (PPH) with my second, lost 2.5 litres, is it anything like that?

Hey hollywood yes it is similar but can happen up to 6 weeks after birth. Happens for a few reasons..I have experienced this twice now so am having some investigation done

Yes I have had one but it was with my first just over 16yrs ago.. Very scary to be at home and have it happen...
I was rushed to Dr/Hospital and had ultrasounds, examinations because they thought that they may have left behind some placenta after a manual removal..
It was not placenta and they never really worked out what it was but It did not happen again after that and everything returned back to normal.. I went on to have a PPH after having my second child in 2009 but everythin was ok after I left hospital and then when I had another child 2010, I was fine and fingers crossed I will be too when this baby is born..
I hope that they work out why it is happening to you and that everything settles and is ok xx

Thanks, I hope they figure it out too. How do I know if they removed the placenta manually?

I'm not challenging you at all...just curious..
Why would they use their hand if you were under a GA an they had access to the D&C machine thingy?
