I’m 6 weeks pp and just had my Pap smear and I am bleeding pretty heavily, more than a standard period with heavy flow. I know spotting and some light bleeding is normal but I have been heavily bleeding and leaking some type of yellow fluid after having my pap. I never had anything like this when I had my first baby. Anyone experienced this?
I had all of that after birth around my first period which was also 6 weeks pp. Everything was perfectly fine just shedding the lining and my first 3 periods were really heavy.
Unless there’s a. Odor it could be plasma but I would definitely want to be seen
Call your Dr to ask for a speedy appointment now!
I had retained placenta that they didn’t find for almost 11 weeks and I was bleeding very heavy among some other issues. Not sure if you stopped bleeding and then it restarted after the pap but I would definitely see your dr either way as the bleeding should have gotten lighter not heavier.
I’d call for sure. I bled heavily for about 2 weeks. I had a C-section though.
Never hurts to call and ask. If you don’t mind me asking, why did you get a pap smear 6wks PP? Hope all is well.
I would suggest calling your ob/gyn asap. I don’t think that’s normal. Could be a sign of something serious or a type of infection. It’s better to play it safe.
Yes I wasn’t stopping bleeding after 8 weeks…I had a D&C done.
heavy bleeding 6 weeks post partum isnt normal, neither is having a yellow discharge, you most likely have an infection and need to be prescribed antibiotics, contact your ob or doctor in the morning
The first period postpartum is always heavy. Well most woman experience that. But the yellow fluid I’m not sure
In the UK were advised to not have a smear test for 12 weeks following birth for this reason! It can’t hurt to call and ask for some advise
Go to your Dr. NOT on facebook!!
Why did they give you a pap smear
