Bleeding after delivery till now is to be taken seriously.. See your obstetrician...She will evaluate you completely.. Labour,its progress, placenta,cleans while delivery, are all important. She will get a scan done to rule out retained products..dont wait...

Dear Practo user, Get ultrasound of lower abdomen and show to the Obstetrician. Sometimes, a piece of placenta (after birth) may remain in uterus and cause prolonged bleeding. Examination by Obstetrician is advisable.
