I was wondering because with my first I bled for a week at most, but I have heard that each time is diffrent, I had a c/s with my son and this one is also a c/s, the first c/s was an emergency, this one is sched........How long did you bleed after c/s and if you got a tubal wich I am getting how long did you bleed? was it less or more?


Good Luck Ladies....

I can't remember with the first too (put it out of my mind I suppose, lol) but this last one, I would say pretty heavy for a week and then just enough to be a pain for about 2 more, just real light (panty liner).

With my 1st I think I bled for 2 weeks, stopped then started back up again for a week or so at 5 weeks PP. THen it was gone for 16 months (I nursed all 3 kids)

My 2nd I was still bleeding when I had my gallbladder out and that was 1 month PP, so there's that answer. I think it ended right after.

This time I bled for 10 days, with a tubal. Stopped, overdid it one day and I've had brownish redish blood since 14 days PP and I'm 3 weeks PP today. It's down to a spot now, usually once a day when I use the restroom.

I've had alot more cramps and such with the tubal though. Like a real period happening, where I just felt icky. My stomach was also very VERY tender till 3 days ago, and now I'm feeling better.

I hear Vag births bleed nonstop for 6 weeks so I count my lucky stars!

I bled VERY lightly (less than a normal period and mine aren't even that heavy) for about 2 weeks.

My first was vaginal and my second was C/S. I bled for about the same length of time after each (like 5 weeks). It wasn't continuous but off and on. For me, the bleeding was much heavier the first two weeks after my C/S than after my vaginal birth.

I bled at least 5 weeks after my c-section, though not heavy enough to worry me. The 6th week may have been my period, since I got another 4 weeks after. I don't think it correlates to what kind of birth you had, or at least not strongly enough to make any kind of prediction.
