Hi thanks for your question.
The common cause of secondary PPH( bleeding after 7 days after delivery) is clot retension.Since 75 days have passed and bleeding has not stopped.Bleeding will not stop by medicine.I think you need D & C (dilatation and curratage) to remove the clots from the uterus only then bleeding will stop.
Hope this answers your question.
