Postpartum Bleeding (TMI)
Okay, so I am 4 weeks pp on monday. I'm pretty sure I've pretty much stopped bleeding out of my vagina- maybe just spotting. However, I am still bleeding out of my urethra :/ and today when I went to the bathroom I had a blood clot the size of a nickel come out of it. I know it was from there because I saw it detach from my urethra. I'm so confused. I had a catheder so I am assuming it is probably trauma from that.

Is this normal..? Should I be calling my doctor or can I ride it out until my 6week check if it hasn't stopped?

Oh, I should also add that they told me I had a small first degree tear they didn't stitch, maybe it could have been a tear frontwards? :shrugs: I have no clue!:(

I would definitely call. I had a catheter and had a couple of tiny streaks of normal red blood in the tube in the hospital, but definitely nothing since. The size of a nickel? Did that hurt pretty bad?

Maybe a bizarro UTI? Whatever it is I don't think you should wait two weeks to see if it gets worse.

Please call,that does not sound normal, especially this far out.

Dropping in from July

I had something like this after I had my son and turns out I had a Strep B infection I developed AFTER delivery in the urethra, I would definitely get it checked out! I hope you feel better!

Any updates on how you're doing?

Re: Postpartum Bleeding (TMI)
Oops, sorry ladies!! I called them, they said there wasn't a nurse available at the moment and if I wanted to hold I could.. But I was super busy (Baby has been going through a major growth spurt.) I said I would call back but in the hassle of everything never did, my bleeding went brown the next day then completely stopped. So, I don't know if maybe the way I was laying made it look like it came out of my urethra or what but I have no more bleeding.. So strange.
