I am 21 days PP and I am still bleeding bright red. Is this normal? Sometimes I feel a bit crampy but nothing that hurts real bad. I know I don't have an infection because I was on 2000 Mg of antibiotics 4 times a day for 2 weeks due to them leaving 2 4x4 sponges inside me after I almost bled out after delivery. How long did you guys bleed afterwards? Do you think I may have already started my period?

No I do not think its your period, any bleeding up to 56 days after giving birth is still considered lochia even if it stops and restarts, I bleed continuosly for 5 weeks and off and on for 2 weeks after that. Some doctors will tell you if it stops then suddenly reappears bright red, you are over doing, take it easy and put your feet up for a couple days

Thank you Firewife. Makes me feel a bit better about the whole thing. I think my nerves are thinking for me at this point.

I was told after the birth of my son that I will bleed for awhile, the could tell me how long since it varies from one person to the next. I was also told (as firewife mentioned) that if I stop bleeding and it restarts that this was a sign that I was over doing it.
