I bled for 5 months and my OB said this was normal, although rare. I found that if I drank more fluids, esp lots of tea, my bleeding increased for that day - but it helped me feel like I was flushing everything out, returning to "my old self" again, at least physically. Good luck!
I bled for a month, (after delivering at 16wk) then had HUGE clots and ended up having a d&c for retained tissue. After that, my bleeding was only for a couple weeks....light, but still some mucus/tissue.
You can always ask for an u/s to be sure there is no retained tissue, as in my case. But overall...your body is letting go of a lot of lining, so most women seem to experience it.
A tough reminder, definitely.
