My oby isn't too concerned at this stage as I haven't soaked a full pad within an hour and there's no pain / illness. I'm day 7 and since day 5 bright red bleeding has returned, just once a day, soaking 1/2 a pad. Anyone had this?

How did the birth go?
I had 8 weeks of bleeding. In the first two it was red from memory.

I've just had 8 weeks of bright red bleeding after a c-section. Turned out I had a partially retained placenta - had no other symptoms aside from the bleeding. I wouldn't be worried at only 7 days but if you get to the 4-6 week mark get it checked! I needed to have a D&C last week to remove it.

@maternidade it would ease off every so often for a few days then come back bright red very fresh. I thought I was overdoing things. It was heavy enough to wear a normal pad but never soaked it through heavy. To me it was like average period flow and would be bright bright red for days. Was also quite thin I think which added to the 'freshness' aspect. It just kept coming back and not reducing. I was told twice by midwives it was normal but when I asked my ob at my check-up 7 weeks post delivery she said it wasn't and told me to call her if no good within a week. When it was no better she did an ultrasound and it was instantly visible on screen. Good luck I really hope you don't have retained products as having the surgery was a nightmare with a newborn.

I'd say at 7 days it's normal but if it continues or you get other symptoms then get checked out. I had an ultrasound when still in hospital to check for retained placenta. If it makes you feel better, ask a GP to refer you for a scan.

I had my midwife home appointment, she has said it sounds like there's a little bit left, not to stress at this stage and I may end up with another clot. If it's still happening by week 4 then I'll need a scan week 6

Update- Still having gushes that soak a pad every few days ( nothing in between) midwife said that's definitely not normal ( 16 days after delivery). Again if I'm still getting them by week 4 I'll need to get a scan
