Re: Postpartum bleeding
I had a c-section as well and the bleeding and clotting wenton for what seemed like a very long time. When it finally stopped, it kept starting and stopping every couple of days. The doctor told me to call immediately if this startd happening (the concern was a possiblity of aving a part of the placent still inside me), so I did, and went in to have an ultrasound (I think DD was like 11 weeks old at this time) and they found more blood clots in my uterus. THey told me that they would eventaully break down and leave my body...which they did, because I am now back to having regualr periods.
If you are still having clotting, though, you might want to call your doctor, because mine told me if a big enough clot formed it could plug the cervix and trap blood in there. SO if you stop bleeding suddenly and have cramping...call your doc immediately because it could be a blood clot stopping up the works. They said if this happens, the treatment is fairly easy, though.
