How long is too long to bleed after a c-section?

  1. Okay, so I had a c-section on December 4th 2005 and I was wondering if I should be concerned that I am still bleeding a whole month later? I still get some shooting pains in my lower abdomen but nothing I can't handel. I'm not bleeding heavily, but I am still bleeding and using pads. Am I overdoing it? Should I be concerned? Any help would be great, thanks!

    I would recommend calling your doctor, because the terms of service dictate that no one can give out medical advice on this board.

    Good luck and I hope you feel better soon.

    Congratulations on the birth of your baby.

    Please, call your doctor about this. This is not a medical advice board. I wish you well!
