Too Heavy Menstrual Bleeding
I just had a baby via c-section almost 2 months ago and am now having my first period since. It is so heavy that I leaked through a tampon in 2 hours, I am normally a heavy bleeder but this startled me is this cause for concern?
Please let your OB/GYN know so this can be evaluated whether it is a cause for concern or not. If you have a fever or abdominal pain, please make your appointment sooner.
