I had my third baby and third c-section 3 months ago. I had a uterine rupture during my VBA2C attempt, but seemed to recover fairly well. My postpartum bleeding lasted a little over 6 weeks, but it lasted til around 6 weeks with my other two babies as well. Then two months after the birth, I had some red spotting, which I thought was maybe my period returning, but it was only for a day. I'm exclusively breastfeeding, but she does sleep through the night, so it was possible for it to be my period. Then a week after the spotting, I started bleeding quite a bit, and was sure *that* was my period even though I had no cramping or anything. Then it lasted for ELEVEN DAYS. We had sex for the first time postpartum a couple days after that, and I started bleeding again, though not heavy, mostly brown. I've spotted off and on since then, and at 3 months postpartum, am bleeding again. Not heavily, it hasn't really seemed like a period, but seems way too long to still be lochia. I'm still slightly tender around the incision area too, and (TMI) have almost constant gas. I don't feel completely recovered. I had my 6 week check up with my OB (at 10 weeks,) but thought I had my period at the time so he never did an exam.
Can this be normal? Should I call my OB? Could it be from the rupture? Retained placenta? Uterus still not back to size?
