red blood Lock Rss

i had my baby 5.5 weeks ago and have been bleeding lightly on and off. but the other day i started bleeding a bit heavier (have to change pads about every 3-4 hours and the blood is quite red. brighter than i've seen since having baby. could this be a period?
Hi,
Thank you for your enquiry. Yes it could be a period. If there are no clots and the loss is similar to your periods, then it is more than likely a period. If there are clots or the discharge is smelly it may be an infection and you need to see your GP for a check up.
Best wishes,
Alex.
