I am almost 4 weeks postpartum and I am still having very bright red bleeding. My bleeding had tapered to just a little pink spotting around day 5 pp and then at day 8 the bright red started back up. It is not enough to soak a pad or anything like that but it is consistently bright red and has not increased or decreased and has been happening for over 2 weeks. I keep getting told that it is because I am doing too much. I know that that is the usual answer for bright red bleeding this far into postpartum but here is the thing... i'm not doing anything. I mean i have been changing more diapers and I try to get a shower every day but that is basically all.
I am just freaking out about it and I don't feel like my midwives get what I am saying. They keep saying it will stop and to call if it doesn't so I call and they say we can watch it a bit more.
Does anybody know what this bleeding means. Everything says it is not good but I don't know why? What could be wrong? Do I want to know?
Thanks to anybody with any help, advice, support.
