My ds is 11 weeks old born by csec. Had the normal postpartum bleed. Which stopped after 4ish weeks then had a light bleed after 6 weeks which I assume was my 1st period.
Started this period on Sunday and it's been really heavy big gushes and clots. Worst was last night I had really bad cramping and as I stood up from being lay down in bed it's gushed running down my legs my pyjamas/ bedding were soaked. It's been heavy all day I've been changing my pad every hour to try and prevent leaks and sat on a towel so I don't leak on the sofa! This is grim! anyone else had this? I don't remember anything like this after having my daughter.
Feel drained! xx

The standard advice is if you have to change your pad every hour then you should get medical help.

I have had much heavier periods post c section but not like you describe.
