Removed dead fetus surgically, period keeps on and off, bleeding lightly. What do i do?

I had a surgical procedure to remove a dead fetus in january. My period started on sat 16th feb and has been on and off since. I was wondering how long this cycle will continue as i am starting to worry as i can go a couple of days or a day with very little bleeding . Started bleeding today after i had emptied my bowels. Still bleeding but lightly.

Thanks for your query.
After a pregnancy termination, spotting / bleeding might continue upto 6 weeks.
I would advise you to consult your gynecologist for a routine check up , which is advisable 6 weeks post partum.
That would rule out any complications like retained tissue, anemia etc, which could cause such spotting.
take care.
