I'm still having yellow lochia 7 weeks post birth. Is this normal? Doesn't smell bad but it's very annoying!!!

I still had this up to 6 weeks after giving birth. You're right, it is really annoying having to wear a pad every night but it does come to an end.

Have you had your postnatal check with your GP yet?

Yes had my check yesterday and she wanted to do a swab for infection but I don't think it's an infection as no other symptoms...

I would get it checked. I had yellow lochia 3 weeks after DS2 was born. No other signed of infection, read that it could be normal so I kind of shrugged it off. Then the smell got worse and I went back to the GP - turned out I had a piece of the string from the induction caught in my cervix! Of course I then needed a strong course of antibiotics and DS2 and I both struggled with thrush as a result...really wish I hadn't written off the idea of an infection and had got it all checked sooner. A swab can't hurt, can it?

Oh yes I'll do the swab smile just wondered if anyone else had the same experience.

She gave me a take home swab kit.
