3 Weeks Postpartum Bleeding

Is it normal that the bleeding in 3 weeks is dark red and normal flow as if its menses blood? Before it was pink/yellow lochia and it seemed to almost stop and and then suddenly i am getting bleeding as if I'm having menstrual flow. I am breastfeeding btw.

Yes it’s normal. It can get heavier and lighter a few times, usually stopping by 8 weeks

Hey yes it is normal but please do consult your gynae just to be double sure

Should be normal as more Lochia may be discharge as uterus contracts more.
