4 weeks Post partum

I had a cs on 3/18 and am still experiencing bright red bleeding at times. Is this normal? How much longer can I expect it to last? Thanks

Very normal, and unfortunately it can last a couple of weeks more. Usually if it is bright red, it means you've probably over done it or exerted yourself. With my 1st c/s, I spotted like that for 6 weeks, with my second, I spotted for 4 weeks. And it was dark at times and bright red at times.

Hope that helps!
