Blood clots and bleeding

Im in my 2 weeks postpartum. After finished showering, I suddenly felt something lump of clot coming out from my vagina and I was right. The bleeding was so excessive that it dripped on the floor. Not long, my whole maternity pad was full of blood clots, and it kept coming out. An hour later, Theres no clots but bleeding is more than usual. I panicked when I see the amount of blood that came out...anybody experienced this before?😣

Heard that it’s good if there are blood clots; our uterus is “cleaning” by passing out the dirty blood after delivery. I’m in my 1-week postpartum, and completed my postnatal massage but only bleeding like normal period. Nonetheless, can always bring it up to your gynae if you’re worried.

i had lots of blood clot the size of grapes to size of golf ball, didn’t really have excessive bleeding though, just like normal menses amount but slightly more. (i have very heavy flow when menses)

Its normal. Just change every few hours. My nifas lasted 60 days so it will take time for it goes out naturally. And post natal massage also helps ( ganggang etc)

Yeah happened to me. The lump or cot is like the size of half of my palm. They say its a good thing. I felt normal and 'lighter' afterwards too.

Yes, it is normal. The Lochia had flowed for almost 2 months for me, on and off. When I thought it had stopped, it resumed haha

I don't have this experience. But you'd better get medical advice.
