Ladies, how long did your postpartum bleeding last? When did it stop?

Vaginal postpartum bleeding is the heavy flow of blood and mucus that starts after delivery and continues for up to 10 days. Light bleeding and spotting after pregnancy can continue for up to four to six weeks after delivery (though it varies from person to person and pregnancy to pregnancy). The heaviest of the bleeding will last for about three to 10 days after labor and delivery, and then it should taper off to lighter spotting after pregnancy. You'll see the difference in the color as this starts to happen, from red to pink, then brown, and finally to a yellowish white. Bleeding should stop flowing around four to six weeks after delivery, though it can end sooner or later depending on the woman and the pregnancy.
