    Default Bleeding after c-section - stopped & then started again????

    Should I be concerned....?

    I bled after having my DS 2 1/2 weeks ago like normal, it slowed done & eventually went down to spotting for about 4 or 5 days.

    But today it started up again, like a heavy period.

    Should I be worried that it stopped & started up again??

    It can be normal for bleeding to fluctuate. Are you in pain? If so I would call your OB and see what they think.
    I found if I did too much that some bleeds restarted. If you can take some time to put your feet up, drink lots of water and get rest

    Same thing happened to me. I had no pain or anything, was just like the normal after birth bleeding. Lasted about 5 days then went away for a few months. I called me ob and asked as I was worried and she said it happens

    If you're in a lot of pain though or feel sick, give your dr a call

    This happened to me after 2 of my c/s. My OB put it down to over doing it. Even if you don't think you are overdoing it just going for a longer walk or around the shops can cause a bit of bleeding.
    If it continues though or you suffer pain or worried then see your GP or OB!
