AF after c-section ?(bleeding ment'd)
Tue, 07-01-2003 - 7:52pm
I had my beautiful baby girl on May 21. I had to have emergency surgery (D&C)on the 26th because I started hemmoraging. (I almost died! very scary!) I have been bleeding since then up until a couple of days ago. It tapered off and went to brown color then gone. I now have bleeding again. It is red and fresh not the brown stuff. I also have cramping. Is this my period? I am not breastfeeding. Any answers would be great. This was my first section.

Did you overdo? The only times I have had bright red bleeding after brown discharge is when I have overdone things. I picked up a child. I worked too hard, etc. If this isn't the case . . . I would seek a doctor just to make sure.
