    Does how long you bleed for depend on if you had the injection for the placenta or not? I had the injection with the boys and bled for about 2 weeks.

    with amelia i didnt have it and im still bleeding now. its not all the time, but i still need to wear a pad. still pink/red.

    is it normal?

    I had the injection and ended up bleeding for about 5 weeks after the birth I think.

    I've had the injection with all 3 of mine but bled different amounts, less than 2 weeks with my oldest, about 3 weeks with my middle and over 4 weeks on and off with my youngest. The after pains were also much worse each time so don't know if it's related. Not sure about the relation with the injection tho. Have you asked a midwife/doctor?

    I had the injection and bled for 6 weeks. It died down after about 3 weeks then started again.
    If you are doing too much it can last longer. If you rest then it should die down.

    i had the injection and was still bleeding really heavy after 2 weeks. I thought this was normal :shock: but when i passed a large blood clot i realised that wasnt normal! I ended up being admitted back into hospital as there was pieces of membrane and placenta left and i had to have a D&C.

    If you are worried about your bleeding see you GP :hug:
