Postpartum bleeding on 6th week

I'm almost at the end of the 6th week after giving birth and still seeing bleeding. It is bright red blood that will soak a medium day-use sanitary pad, not brown blood trace. In my previous delivery when I finished bleeding on 3rd week. So the current situation quite surprised me. Is this normal? Anyone encounter similar situation as me? I'm breastfeeding heavily and had taken quite a lot of herbal soup in my confinement month as well as postpartum massage. Not sure whether these affects.

My gynae said lochia can last 4-6 weeks, personally for me most of them were only spotting though. If you're worried you can always call your gynae clinic and ask if you need to come in and check.
