Normal: When you have a period after a pregnancy the lining is usually thicker due to the hormonal changes and you flow more. Drink plenty of fluids and iron rich foods. If it lasts more then 7 days or if you continue to feel dizzy see your doctor. Any chance you could be pregnant again? Discuss contraception with your doctor.
