How long do you actually bleed, period wise? I've had ppl tell me almost a month....which I hope isn't true.

I bled for about 4wks after my c-sections, but I didn't get an actual period for a while because I breastfed.

I've bled anywhere from 6-10 weeks. I also breastfed and didn't get a period until 8-12 months.

My postpartum bleeding was really only heavy the first 2 weeks and then tapered off to nothing for the following week. I was breast feeding exclusively and that makes a big difference. If you are too active too soon postpartum then your bleeding will be heavier too.

I bled for 2wks after having my son via c section. The first 4 or 5 days were heavy and the rest was light. Got my 1st period 4w after I stopped bleeding.
