Bright Red Bleeding and Huge Clots 6 Weeks Postpartum

Postby angelkissed » Fri Feb 01, 2013 1:07 pm

Hello Ladies,

I had my beautiful baby girl Luna 6 weeks ago via csection and I have not stopped bleedings since. It is usually a light to medium flow. The past week I have had a very heavy flow with bright red bleeding and clots the size of my fist. Last night I went through 2 pads in one hour!

I went to the ER they said I have a blood clots in my uterus. Is this normal and could be fragments left from the placenta?

It definitely happens and can be leftover placenta. My OB told me to watch for bright red bleeding like that. What did they do for it?
