Post-partum bleeding: "Continuous" bleeding for months after delivery may be related to retained placental fragments. See your OB physician for an exam and treatment. This may require a minor surgical procedure.

Is it normal for a woman to bleed up to 3 months after giving birth?

Unusual: Seems too long, especially if this is on the heavier side. The OB provider would want to evaluate this
