To think this is too heavy bleeding.

First period after baby. Have always had heavy periods but currently going through a super max tampon every 1-2 hours.
I feel completely wiped out and can't do anything as keep on having to go to the toilet.
So should I be concerned, and anyone have any ideas about when it might ease up

My first 3 or so periods after having DS were horrendously heavy, soaking through a nighttime pad an hour. It did improve but go to the GP if you're worried, I think they can give you something to slow down the flow - actually I think you can get it over the counter now too.

How long since you have birth? I suffered a post partum haemorrhage about 10 days after d's was born (I sneezed and blood and huge blood clots started gushing out, pretty grim). It was very serious and I needed an emergency blood transfusion and op to save my life. This was caused my retained placenta. If in ANY doubt go straight to a&e as this is life threatening

I think regardless whether it is normal.for others if it is not normal for you and a lot heavier I would ring 111 or contact your gp.
I always remember the lady on here (sorry I can't remember your name!) Who was bleeding heavily and followed advice on here and if she hadn't she probably wouldn't be here to tell the tale.
I do think it's better to be safe than sorry.
