Hi all - I'm 8 days pp and I still have bright red lochia. Is this normal?
I did find that the flow had started to reduce but when I'm physically active (doing jobs around the house, walking etc.), it tends to get heavier and I become sensitive to how I felt immediately after the birth.
My clitoris also feels very sensitive when sitting down, and when I'm stood up or walking about, I feel like everything is going to fall out at times!!!
I did get the booklet that had the exercises on it but I haven't been doing them as religiously as I should.... I must pick up the pace with them, I know they are important to get me recovered properly.
I will mention it to my health visitor as she is the one I see next. I passed a golf ball size clot (I think it was Thursday last week?) but the midwife said not to worry unless it was accompanied by heavy bleeding., and it wasn't, but I do sometimes feel that my bleed tapers off and then gets heavier again. I can actually feel it running out (tmi, sorry).
