Still Bleeding 7 months after giving birth what is wrong?

Post delivery: Most commonly after delivery when bleeding is continuous as your question implies, the cause is retained material from the placenta. See your healthcare provider for advice and probably an ultrasound of the womb. If present, the retained fragments may require a "D and C", which is a scraping of the inside of your womb, and is curative. ...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

Would you say it's average to bleed for 19 days after giving birth? Is there an average window for bleeding? My friend just had a baby 3 weeks ago.

Not unusual: Bleeding is common for 4weeks following a delivery, but occasionally my patients note persistent bleeding at their 6week exam. The overall length of flow varies, but as long as the trend is to lighter flow, i would not be concerned. There may be some times when the flow increases, but this usually abates within a few hours. Such episodes are common in the first couple of weeks following delivery. ...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.
