I am still bleeding. Immediately after I had my son I had a retained placenta. They removed it. I then got a severe uterus infection that put me in the hospital for a week when he was three weeks old. Well I have been spotting red then it turns brown. Tmi but its clotty and stringy With my daughter I stopped bleeding at six weeks.
I also got my tubes tied this time. I breastfed only. No formula.
I emailed my dr and they want to put me on meds for a week to stop the bleeding. I don't feel comfortable being on any meds because of my sons issues.
So my question is what would cause me to still be bleeding ten weeks after having my son ? Have any of you ladies experienced pp bleeding that lasted longer than 6 weeks and what did your dr do ? I am cramping on and off.
They did an ultrasound when I was on the hospital and my uterus lining looked great. just ready to stop bleeding.
