 marleymum - Mon Jan 30, 2006 7:08 am

im 32 and 8 weeks ago had my 3rd baby by (3rd)caesarian section, i hadn a early postpartum haemorrhage since then ive been bleeding sometimes very heavy some times just spotting i am also breastfeeding, ive had an ultrascan to check if there is any parts of the placenta left and was given the all clear. i had an staph A infection on my scar which was treated with antibiotics, i know its not right to bleed for this long especially with breast feeding what could the reason be?

User avatar You are right that it is not normal to have heavy bleeding this far after child birth. If it is spotting it may have to do more with homronal ups and downs It takes awhile for normal menstral cycles to stabilize after childbirth. Even longer if you are breastfeeding. Did your doctor do any blood tests to rule out any bleeding disorders?
