Passing Blood clots after a C-Section?
I have been passing blood clots almost daily now since my C-Section 4 days ago, some are small, but some are fairly big - the one I passed tonight was a couple inches long by maybe half a centimetre wide?   is this normal?   x

Did the doctor tell you what was acceptable before you were discharged? They have different things they tell women... Like my doctor said anything under the size of a grapefruit was fine, but anything bigger needed checked out.

They said the size of a 50p piece so I haven't been worrying about them really until that one tonight, cause it was quite long, not sure how you would measure it x

I'm trying to remember how big a 50p piece is... It's been forever since I've been to the UK.. I think that's relatively tiny. I'd call your doctor (whoever gave you your prenatal care) and ask what they say about it. I didn't have a c-section so I don't know if there's differences between what is normal.

i had a TON of blood clots with my son.. make sure you're massaging your uterus every so often and that REALLY helps..i bled 6 weeks straight because my first hospital didnt tell me to do that, and only 1 week with my 2nd c-section doing that.. he said that helps significantly with bleeding after. also it can depend on how well you were "vacuumed" out after your c-section.. i think my first doctor said I could expect up to one week of clots. as long as they werent consistently larger than a golf ball.. but def. check with your doctor
