I would like to check is it possible that lochia coming to 4wks as i gave birth on 1st of May till now but still have on n off red blood discharge, is it normal? Shouldnt it b turning to brown or other color already??
I knw that lochia can last up to 6wks which that happened on previously but now still red even though it coming to 4wks alrdy.
I did enquire my gynae but even he say it is hard to tell whether is it lochia or menses bcoz for the past 4-5 days my bleeding flow is like as if menses so much sumore i do have cramp once in awhile BUT my lochia didnt stop completely yet unless my previous experience that lochia for 6wks then 3wks later then my menses come ~
I think is not a big problem.. i'm like this too even after 4 weeks after my delivery.
The lochia is red instead of brown in colour.
I guess most importantly is the menses dont't continue more than 6 weeks..
if more than 6 weeks need to consult your gynae =)
my lochia only stopped after about 6 weeks.
sometimes it would be brownish, sometimes bright red. the amount varies also, but it def trailed off towards the end.
For myself, my body also abit wrecked I guess... LOL...
Last 4 days, I got put pad, but then my pad can last for whole day. Like nothing come out like that. Just abit of the sticky substance. Then there was 1 whole day I got no blood or even discharge at all... System abit crazy...
Something funny yet interesting is when last 2-3 days (5 weeks 5-6 days) my lochia suddenly will become very light and just nice on the 6th week stop.
So i think it should not be any big problem as long it didn't continue after 6 weeks.
dont't worry too much!!
Me too.. me stop around the 6 weeks. Sometimes very little then at times alot.. Loves, if you still feel uneasy, ask your gynae..
I saw this article and hope it helps

Next week mon will be my 4th week after delivery.I'm doing partial breastfeeding thru pumping to my baby. I notice that after each session of my pumping, I will start to bleed. If not pump, there no bleeding. The color now is pink when wipe on the toilet paper. But pad is dark red... When will the bleeding stop? also is it normal to pump and bleed later on? I also find myself have fainting spell after pumping.
