So, I had a baby over six weeks ago. I stopped bleeding for a week or so and then started again. Is this normal? Has anyone else had this problem?

Congrats on the baby! That doesn't sound good. Are you having cramping or other problems? I'd definitely get to the doc on that one. I stopped bleeding after about 4 weeks and didn't have another problem.

I had that onct. My uterus didn contract enough after the birth. I went back to my doc and he gave me some pills made me cramp like anything. I had to take to bed for a coupla days, but it made the bleeding stop.

Bad news. Did u go to your six week checkup? I don't think that's niormal.

I think that u don't have to look at the six weeks as a hard and fast rule, but u should have gone to your postpartum checkup. If u didn't, u should, and u can ask your doc while your there.

I bleed on and off the whole time I nurse. My doctor sez its hormones. I know most women don't bleed when they're nursing. GUess i'm just unusual.

I heard about someone, they left a sponge inside her after a ceasarian. She bled and had pain for months. Finally they opened her up and find this sponge. She could have become unfertile. She sued. She's lucky she's alive. You're bleeding could be a symptom.
