does anyone know?


***warning may have TMI for some***

hoping someone may be able to help...long story short i had my youngest on Dec. 10th it was a natural delivery, i had bleed heavily (soaking through pads in less than an hr.) for 6 weeks after and had major clotting ( golf ball size) so i finally went to the hospital, they did an ultrasound and found that there was a piece of the placenta left in my uterus as well as a lot of extra tissue. they immediately sent me for a D&C and i bleed for about another week and now it has finally stopped, however when my bf and I have intercourse i start to bleed again and after going to the bathroom a second time after wards the bleeding stops again. has anyone ever experienced this or have any ideas as to why this might be happening?

again sorry if it is TMI

See your doctor.

After intercourse is it a lot of bleeding? Or just a small amount? Is it bright red or brown? Enough to need a pad?

I would go to see my doctor because maybe you have an infection or perhaps something in the vagina has been irritated (an abrasion from giving birth) from intercourse. I'd just go to be safe.

How long?

How long since the D & C before you guys had intercourse?

I read somewhere it can take up to a year to heal after birth. Is it painful, or not painful but just blood?

I'd say definitely check in to be safe if you can get to a doctor/have insurance.

My sister had a D&C;and was told to not to have intercourse for three to four weeks

To me that would seem consistent and normal. I've heard bleeding after can continue for as long as a month, but I hope more women who've gone through this can answer your question as I'm not yet a mum!

the paper that the nurses had gave me said i could resume intercourse after the bleeding had stopped and a week had past...i see my OBGYN on feb 2nd so ill ask her then

Definitely check in, but don't worry overly much unless you start to experience pain, nausea or feel really ill and ask at your appointment. Good luck!
