Is this post partum ? or post d&c?
I know since my tubal, I have very heavy for 3 days then it almost stops those 3 days I go through 2 bags of pads!!! Changing them about every half and hour most of the times wearing two pads (sorry to be gross) at once.
Then it will ease up and stop day 4
Instead of starting a new one ill ask here has anyone ever had heart burn from chocolate? I havent eaten it for about 12 months or so because I kept gettign sick now I had to have when I went to the store and now I have heartburn this sucks!!!!!
Well my tubal was 4.5 months ago when i had a section.
Just wondering your age I know sometimes as you get older (late 30's, early 40's ) the "change of life" seems to make them alot worse. A few older ladies at work would complain how heavy AF was. I am 37 but another post who had her tubes tied said she experienced heavy bleeding after a tubal for several months
i would say enjoy the light period. i usually have a 3-4 day period, where i can go 8+ hours on a regular absor. tampon and still not fill it. since my m/c i have a 6 day period with 3 days like you ,so heavy that i need to change every 30-60 min. i would die to have my old periods back. myself i am only 29, so my heavy periods, i am just blaming on the m/c. which was 4 months ago.
i agree with jluhart. my first period after i had my daughter i was bleeding so much i was changing a pad every 30 mins. my doc said that it wasnt normal. it could either be a sign of a miscarriage or something ripped in my uterus. you definitely need talk to your doctor just to be safe. ( and dont feel to bad, im only 19)
Reading your note was uncanny. That is exactly what I have experienced. I had C Section 3 years ago, then reasonable periods. About a year ago they got very heavy for 3-4 days, with very very light bleeding for another 5 days, but on a 28 day cycle. This month I was 4 days late and then I have had practically nothing for 3 days and now it stopped by day 4. Did you find out why you have had this problem? I would be really interested to know. Am considering doing pregnancy test even though husband has had vasectomy.
Mmmmk, yeah I'm still in high school, and I normally have really heavy periods... But this month it's light... Not freaky light or anything, but not anywhere near as bad as the last time. I'm just using pads this week because I dont have to use a tamp.
But could having a light period mean something else?
Could it be stress?
I graduate friday, just got a new job, am about to move out, and recently started exercising every other day...
I dunno... you tell me what you think
