Hi ladies. I had my first child via c-section in March 2011. I bled off and on for 8 weeks at the beginning. And w/in the last 5 weeks I have been spotting pretty consistent off and on ranging from brown, to pink, to red blood, never enough to go through a whole pad.
Anyone else experience this or have any idea what may be the cause?
Sorry you have the spotting. I am not much help since I didn't have spotting that soon after my C-section. My period came back about a year after the C-section but only spotting and not continuous just a few days.
I think I would schedule an appt or maybe you can do an over the phone consult w/ a nurse?
Have you been having regular periods? If not, I'd say this may be the return of your periods.
If so, this doesn't seem right and you probably should consult your doctor. I had a c-section 6 months ago too and I had some non-period bleeding up until about 3 months pp...and I thought that was long!
I have has the same spotting as well.. I had a c-section (2nd one) on March 23rd. And my scar is kinda tender,ichie at times.. I have a bruise still on lower belly area above scar. My last 3 periods I have had. I have at spotting in between, My periods last longer now too. Like 2 weeks.. This last period came almost 2 weeks early. My body i guess is going though changes.. I had my tubes tied too.. Not sure if that has anything to do with this.
