Possibly: If she is breastfeeding and having slight spotting, it is probably normal. If she is having heavy bleeding (like a period or heavier) or if she did not breastfeed and has not stopped bleeding, she should see her gynecologist for evaluation. ...Read more

Go to the Doctor: Today. Go to the Doctor Today. Go to the Doctor Today. No. This is not normal. it is abnormal. It is bizarre that you would be in your fourth month of bleeding and not consulted your physician. You need to consult your physician urgently. ...Read more

Should get checked: 3 months is a bit long after the pregnancy to be irregularly bleeding from pregnancy itself but periods should not be irregular (unless periods were irregular before). One should get checked out for things such as retained products of conception as well as non-pregnancy-related causes of irregular bleeding ...Read more

I gave birth 6 days ago and still bleeding, should I be concerned?

I gave birth 6 days ago and still bleeding, should I be concerned?

Postpartum bleeding : It depends upon the amount. While some bleeding is normal, the bleeding should have slowed. If your bleeding is excessive or has not slowed, please seek care immediately. Call your OB/GYN to speak with the MD on call or if the bleeding is excessive and you are dizzy, have vertigo or feel weak seek emergency care. It's important to seek care if you are lightheaded because of postpartum hemorrhage. ...Read more

I gave birth 2 weeks ago and the bleeding has stopped but now I have a heavy discharge with a very bad odor. Is this normal? There's not much color to the discharge though.

I gave birth 2 weeks ago and the bleeding has stopped but now I have a heavy discharge with a very bad odor. Is this normal? There's not much color to the discharge though.

Even : Even though increased vaginal discharge is normal for 6 weeks after giving birth, the foul odor may be a sign of an infection. The most common reason for bad smelling discharge in a woman is bacterial vaginosis (bv). Bv is not a sexually transmitted disease, but is an imbalance between the "good" and "bad" bacterial that normally live in the vagina. Douching and having sex and giving birth can all put you at risk since these activities cause a change in the vaginal environment leading to an overgrowth of "bad" bacteria. Many women will complain of a fishy odor, increased discharge and a few may even have itching and discomfort. You should give your doctor a call to see if you have bv. The doctor can test your vaginal discharge to know for certain whether you have it or not. Bv is typically treated with a short course of antibiotics. ...Read more

I gave birth a week ago and I have stitches and an odd mild odor, the bleeding stopped but stitches still hurt a little. Could this be an infection?

I gave birth a week ago and I have stitches and an odd mild odor, the bleeding stopped but stitches still hurt a little. Could this be an infection?

Please call your OB: Any questions in the post partum period should be directed to your OB as your OB knows everything about your delivery and post partum, it is normal that the stitches can hurt for 1-3 weeks but there should not be any increasing swelling or redness, if necessary your OB can check you and the stitches in the office tomorrow to make sure there are no problems. ...Read more

I gave birth to my daughter six weeks ago. Yesterday I had an orgasm (no penetration) and the postpartum bleeding got heavier again. Is this normal?

I gave birth to my daughter six weeks ago. Yesterday I had an orgasm (no penetration) and the postpartum bleeding got heavier again. Is this normal?

Not surprising: Orgasm initiates uterine and vaginal contractions and if there is any residual blood sitting in those locations it will be expelled rapidly. If the heavy bleeding continues beyond 2 days, see your GYN MD. ...Read more

I am 32 years old. No birth control. Gave birth 3 years ago. My period lasts 5-6days normal bleeding and then 5-6 days light bleeding. Lots of pain.

I am 32 years old. No birth control.  Gave birth 3 years ago. My period lasts 5-6days normal bleeding and then 5-6 days light bleeding. Lots of pain.

Time for the Doctor: I would advise you that three years of symptoms is probably proof that you need a thorough medical evaluation and examination in person at the doctor's office. I would bet that the solution of your problem will not be found on the internet. ...Read more

Bleeding after sex, not heavy, lasts between an hour to 24 hours. Had pap and hpv/std tests for this and all are normal. Any ideas? Gave birth 8/2012.

Cervicitis?: Bleeding after sex is often a sign of inflammation of the cervix, i.e. cervicitis. Although some cervicitis is due to STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia), those tests are highly reliable so probably not a concern. Cervicitis is normally diagnosed by direct exam. In addition to the tests (pap, HPV, STD), did your doctor say anything about the appearance of your cervix or the cause of bleeding? ...Read more
