I’m 4 months pp. I just got my first period since I’ve had my baby and it’s crazy ridiculous. I’m currently soaking through S+ tampons in a hour. It started yesterday and hasn’t gotten better.
What are some ways to help with this? Should I call my doctor? Can I take something to make it not so heavy?
My periods became like this after I had my children. I don’t think it’s uncommon
That’s how mine was I had to wear a tampon and a pad within 2 hours but if your going through a pad on less than an hour call dr can be a hemorrhage rule of thumb less than an hour in a maxi pad
Buy Ultra sized tampons.
They’re bigger than S+ and holds more
Same with me. And they are still heavy AF a year later. Ugh. I couldn’t even stand up without a gush lol
In that order
Your body is re setting
If it gets worse call gyno
Ibuprofen slows it down temporarily, and follow up if it lasts more than 2 days this heavy.
Happened to me and found out the dr didn’t remove some of the placenta. Call for sure.
Just happened to me last month the next month was way calmer
Definitely call the doctor. Typically the rule of thumb is if you are soaking through one tampon or pad an hour you should be evaluated
Normal unfortunately… Super tampons and overnight pad at the same time… Meh.
Not normal your going thru too many pads. Go to the er tonight!
Since my last pregnancy over 5 years ago every period I soak through ultra tampons every hour and my period is only 3 days long
Doctor immediately I had a post partum hemorrhage at 21 days almost died 3 bags of blood
This is NOT normal. Please see your doctor or obygyn ASAP.
Ibuprofen thins it and helps it slow down
Ever since I had my son, I’ve been much heavier. He’s now 19 months old and it seems to slowly be getting better.
