Doctor :   Bleeding after birth is a normal phenomenon. Lochia refers to vaginal discharge during the postpartum period. It consist s of blood, sloughed-off tissue from the lining of the uterus, and bacteria. The lochia will taper off before it stops, a process that generally takes another two to four weeks, though a small number of women continue to have scant lochia or intermittent spotting for a few more weeks. Since your bleeding is prolonged, I would advise that you see your gynecologist for a more detailed examination and tests.
