Is it normal to bleed with clots after delivery ?

I had a baby 7 weeks ago and I stopped bleeding a few weeks ago. Today I went to the bathroom and after I wiped I noticed that I started bleeding again and I also notice a clot that looked like pieces of chewed up meat I ate yesterday. Is this normal or is something wrong?

Congrats for having baby.
If the bleeding you had is dark and clotted it can be collected blood coming out.But still it will be advisable to consult your treating doctor who delivered you.Consult her/him to get examined to rule out any problem.

Hi doctor, I am 4 weeks post natural delivery of missed miscarriage, I suffered massive clots 2 days post delivery of baby due to a piece of sac that was attached to womb wall that failed to pass. It was removed and I was sent home an hour later. Today I be feeling very faint and have some light spotting (some fresh blood and some dark tinged mucus) I did have unprotected sex and am wondering is this a symptom of period returning to normal after everything? Or is it more of a pregnancy symptom? Thank you for your expertise, Stephanie Thanking you for your expertise

had twins by csection 12 days ago. we came home 2 days later, By then I was no longer bleeding heavy mainly just spotting. This morning when I got up from sleeping about 4 hours I had bled extremely heavy. Within the last 10 hours i have used 10-12 pads bleeding so heavy I ve changed panties 3 along with my shorts. When changing pad the toilet is full of blood and when I wipe there is like stringy looking clots. Im on iron pills twice a day the doctor prescribed due to my iron at 7 upon hospital release. It wad checked 4 days ago was 11.9. I also take labatol 200 mg twice a day. always had perfect blood pressure until 35th week of pregnancy was put in hospital discharged next day when they got it lowered. At week 37 became 178/118 admitted to hospital for treatment to lower and stabilize it. After treatment not being successful the doctor done c section. The doctor has continued the medicine due to blood pressure still being high. Is this kind of bleeding normal or is something wrong?
