I had an emergency c-section 12 days ago, and in the last 5 days or so I have noticed the Lochia bleeding turning a dark red/brown color, becoming slimey, and it now had developed a foul smell. Also it hurts to urinate. It burns slightly (but not like an UTI) as well as a pain in my uterus almost like a mini contraction. Should I be contacting my OBGYN now or is this something I can discuss at my 6 week appointment?

5 weeks postpartum. Lochia stopped at 32 days (4w4d). Tonight started bleeding again (seems heavier than lochia) with period-like cramps. Is it possible to get my period again this early? I am EBF (every 2 hours) and on the minipill (started it at 3 weeks pp)
