I still have to wear a pad and I am 8 weeks postpartum! I stopped bleeding red a long time ago but still have yellowish/tanish lochia, enough for me to wear a light pad. Is this normal? I bled for 3 weeks with my first and 6 weeks with my second, and both times it stopped abruptly. This time I had a couple days of it stopping (a couple weeks ago), only for it to start up again. Frustrating!!
Lochia still at 8 weeks PP
Kempsmama- that's good to know because this was a C-section! My first was a section too but I only bled like 3 weeks, 2nd was a VBAC (hbac) and I bled for 6. So I thought this time I would bleed only a few weeks like my first section... good to know I prob only have a week or so more! It doesn't smell bad, just like mentrual blood (sorry if T.M.I.) so I don't think there is any infection or anything. No pain. If it still persists past 10 weeks I was call the doc.
