OMG

First period since c-section! Clots the size of golf balls, waking every hour to change saturated pads, can't stand up without feeling like Niagara Falls is happening in my pants!

Not sure how much is too much? Can't remember it being this bad last time . If I went to the doctors/hospital would they even do anything?

Call 111 op. That is very heavy. A pad an hour is extremely heavy.

NotAQueef Thu 17-Nov-16 09:49:32

If you're soaking a pad every hour, that does sound a lot. I would call doctor/111 for advice. How do you feel in yourself?

I don't want to worry you as it's probably not the same but there was a thread on here a week or so ago where the op was losing similar amounts of blood. Turns out she had a womb infection (I think) which turned into sepsis.

I would call just in case.

Repost in health and/ or relationships if your DH talks to you like that.

Iminapckle (the title was a joke!)

I feel ok apart from the bleeding, I did have an infection after my section and was on antibiotics, so that's quite scary that it could be back :-(

If you're soaking a pad an hour-please please go and get checked out.
You could have some retained placenta or an infection. You are susceptible after surgery. Don't dick about here, you could become extremely unwell. flowers

NotAQueef Thu 17-Nov-16 09:55:59

Please do call 111

FeralBeryl Thu 17-Nov-16 09:56:28

X post smile
Yep, sounds like it's not entirely cleared up. Give them a ring <stern>

Oh and congratulations too!

Fenced Thu 17-Nov-16 09:57:25

Notaqueef - do u know where that post is?

BathshebaDarkstone Thu 17-Nov-16 09:57:49

Love the title, grin but get thee to a GP! shock

Threesoundslikealot Thu 17-Nov-16 10:02:05

The thread is in Classics, Fenced, as the OP credited it for saving her life. It was very scary.

IminaPickle Thu 17-Nov-16 10:02:54

Phew about the title, not the problem. Go to A&E or GP only if someone can take you otherwise call 111

Piehunter Thu 17-Nov-16 10:02:58

The thread was deleted as it was picked up by a paper angry

Another bossy post to tell you to ring 111. That amount of blood loss is not normal and will make you feel very ill if it continues. A womb infection could quickly turn very nasty. If you explain you are soaking through pads every hour, doctors would take that very seriously.

Bluntness100 Thu 17-Nov-16 10:03:50

I'd see the doctor again, I had this and it was because they left placenta inside me. My clots were a lot bigger though, more small apple sized.

Fenced Thu 17-Nov-16 10:11:31

Ok - I'm getting very worried now! I expected 'yeah, that's normal, it will settle, etc!)

I will wait an hour and see if it calms down, if not, will call someone! confusedsad

Porkswordcallingdannyboy Thu 17-Nov-16 10:15:38

Call now, don't wait an hour! Please!

NotAQueef Thu 17-Nov-16 10:17:58

A lot can change in an hour, I would really urge you to phone them now!

SurelyYoureJokingMrFeynman Thu 17-Nov-16 10:19:49

Yep, call now.

Let 111 make the decision about how urgent it is.

(Poster whose life was saved passed out in the ambulance. She said if she'd held off calling, she'd never have had the chance.)

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Thu 17-Nov-16 10:20:03

111 won't think you are wasting their time. They'll go through your symptoms on the phone and give you advice, or a doctor will call you back to assess how bad you are and will make you an appointment at your local hospital or gp surgery.
Don't delay! flowers

Fenced Thu 17-Nov-16 10:24:17

But I feel fine!

Stormtreader Thu 17-Nov-16 10:25:39

I saw that old thread - the medical advice that poster got was "soaking a pad per hour for more than one hour - call for help." The poster delayed and was told that if shed decided to just go to sleep and see how things were in the morning she probably wouldnt have made it.

Call now.

Pteranodon Thu 17-Nov-16 10:28:17

The other poster said she felt well enough that she'd have gone to work - call 999, 111 will call an ambulance for you anyway.

teenyrabbit Thu 17-Nov-16 10:30:48

Like pps have said the other poster would have lost her life if she hadn't called.

Call 111 now no matter how fine you feel. You're losing a lot of blood.

SurelyYoureJokingMrFeynman Thu 17-Nov-16 10:32:30

I think she did go to work! For some hours!

She was then blue-lighted into hospital, rushed into a resus room where a team of four people spent hours on her, and had to be accompanied all night by a nurse doing one-to-one obvs.

The doctor who came in the next morning commented on how she'd given them all quite a night.

So, trying "not to bother anyone" was a bit of a fail.grin
