Hi,
If the flow is like a period and not excessive then nothing to worry about.It should be like a normal menstruation.Bleeding for more than 7 days and passage of heavy clots needs medical attention.

Hi Doctor, it is been three months since I have a surgery to remove only the fibroids. After my first menstrual cycle I had 7 days of bleeding which I had to wear pads. It was not heavy, when I went to see my gynecologist he put me on birth control. I began taking it two days before my menstrual period. I can say I do not have my period, but I still have painful cramps. Why do you think because I am very concerned about that.
