hello
welcome to health care magic
discharge after delivery also called lochia if persisting for weeks together should not worry unless and untill if its heavy bleeding vth bright red colour.
if it is reducing in quantity comparitevely from previous days than need not worry but if u notice in increasing flow with fainting sensation than u need to consult gynaecologist
good luck

I am getting a uterine biopsy soon and have a very low tolerance for pain. I have never had children and my cervix is tight. I am 59 years old. I was give Cytotec to take the night before. I understand this can cause severe cramping. When I did get my period before menopause the cramps were severe - I had to take heavy doses of Advil 5 days BEFORE it started and then Darvon on the first 2 days. I thought for the biopsy I would take Mobic 5 days before and then Percocet a hour before the biopsy ( I have discussed this with my dr.) Any other suggestions? I am a wreck! Thank you!
