Is it normal to have a super super heavy period after having a baby! I'm 3 months post partum and going through a super tampon every 45 min - ?

Is it normal to have a super super heavy period after having a baby! I'm 3 months post partum and going through a super tampon every 45 min - ?

Periods can become a bit heavier after pregnancy but a tampon every 45 min seems a lot. I'd see your OB-GYN, esp. if heavy bleeding continues, cramping, fever, dizzy or weak. ...Read more

May be normal: Are you breast feeding? Using any form of birth control? Sexually active? All of these may effect cycles after delivery. If bleeding is heavy and frequent need to change pads, you should seek care to rule out infection or other processes. If scant spotting, this can be normal with first cycle following delivery. ...Read more

Tough one: if actively breast-feeding and no menses since delivery you are not ovulating and thus unlikely to conceive or become pregnant. Sorry. Enjoy the bonding time with the one you have. Breast feeding so very important to your child especially for the first year of life. No real way to make your periods (and ovulation) start up again safely. Let nature take its course.
