I just had a question about bleeding after you give birth. How long do you tend to bleed? I know everyone is different and it also depends on if you have a c-section or vaginal birth. Everyone has told me different things. Also, does breast feeding cause you not to bleed? I am sorry I have so many questions, but this is my first and I am so interested in everything I can find out about it. Any little bit of information or advice would help. I just want to know seeing that afterwards I want to go back to BD with my DH as soon as I can and just want to know how long I will have to wait!
HI I HAD MY FIRST CHILD IN JANUARY, I WAS ALSO INTRESTED IN ALL THE QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ASKED... I HAD A 10 POUND 10 SON WITH A 6 HOUR LABOUR & 1/2 HOUR DELIVERY I HAVE A VAGINAL BIRTH BUT NEEDED FORCEPS DELIVERY BECAUSE HIS HEAD WAS SO BIG, I BEGAN BREAST FEEDING IMMEDIATLY AND STILL AM (HE IS NOW 5 MONTHS OLD) THE BLEEDING AFTER THE BIRTH WAS LIKE A MEDIUM PERIOD AND STOPPED WITHIN 2 WEEKS. I HAVE HAD MY PERIOD EVERY MONTH NOW ARROUND THE SAME DATE SINCE HE WAS BORN BUT IT IS LATE THIS MONTH I HAVE TAKEN A FEW PREGNANCY TESTS BUT THEY WERE BOTH NEGATIVE... MY MA SAID THAT YOUR CYCLE CAN BE A LITTLE DICKED AROUND FOR A FEW MONTHS AFTER YOU HAVE GIVEN BIRTH... I HOPE THIS HAS HELPED... SHELL...
Thanks. I plan on breast feeding so maybe I will be like you. I hope that I only bleed for a little bit and then get back to my old self again. I am just ready to be back to normal, especially when it comes to sex with my DH. Thanks for the info!
I nursed both boys exclusively but the bleeding PP varied with each regardless of that. With my first I was overdoing it without realizing it and ended up bleeding for a few weeks, and having leukorrhea for a few weeks beyond that. With my second, I had both for about 2-2.5 weeks total. I had vag deliveries with both. I think the second time around, despite having a 2.5 year old to chase around, I knew to rest as much as possible and if the bleeding picked up to slow down.
Invest in some good pads. I prefer the incontinence pads (the ones that are a step below the full brief ones) Pair those with some good sturdy hanes her way granny panties and you will be fine : )
i have a question to all the mothers out there, i just had a baby 3 months ago and i am now starting to bleed again but it is heavy i am filling up 12 or more pads a day i just cant afford it what do i do, my boyfriend is getting mad at me because he doesnt know what to do, i am confused
