Yes: Your intestines take a while to get back to normal, so it may take several days for you to need to have a bowel movement. In that time, the stool can get hard and be difficult to pass. It's a good idea to take a tool softener until things are working right. And keep up your fluids! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: If there is stool in your lower bowel and rectum you will push it out as you are pushing the baby down the birth canal. This is normal and common and we simply clean it up as it occurs.

I've been bleeding for over 7 weeks after giving birth it seemed to slow down initially after 4 weeks then it got heavy. Is this normal? Or my period?
Your body: is responding normally to not having normal hormonal balance for 10 months. Sometimes this can lead to irregular bleeding during or in between periods for a few months before you become regular again. If you are trying to get pregnant (just IF), then you will need to wait for your periods to be regular. If not, then just ride it out. If it persists beyond 3-4 months, go see a healthcare pro. ...Read more

I have been bleeding for 3 months after giving birth nonstop. It is light but i want to know if its normal. I'm also on the depo.
Not really normal: If patients of mine are still bleeding after about 6-7 weeks, then i usually do an ultrasound to see if there's something wrong. There isn't always a problem to be found, but it's nice to know that for sure. Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) does cause irregular bleeding too, especially if you are not breastfeeding. In any case, i'd look into it further. ...Read more
After giving birth i had 5 weeks of normal bleeding, but 1 week after my check up i started bleeding and haven't stopped since and its going on 3 months.
See doctor: If you've been bleeding for 3 months, this isn't normal and i would make an appt with gynecologist for evaluation. It's possible that has nothing to do with recent birth, but problem with uterus, thyroid or pituitary. See a doctor for evaluation though, bleeding could cause anemia and fatigue as well. Good luck! ...Read more
