Brief Answer:
retained products

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

When some parts of pregnancy like placetal tissue or membranes are left behind they lead to bleeding you mentioned.

If they find them in ultrasound scan they will remive it by curettage under anesthesia.

Let me know if you have any more questions.
