I am experiencing this as well. Some days I bleed bright red (mostly) and other day are brown but heavier then spotting. On the days I am bright red I get clots and bleed like a pig. Other days it gets between light and medium. It has scared me too I did not have this issue until after I had my second C-section. My OBGYN put me on the Depo Provera shot. Don't get me wrong it does help a little but but when it doesnt I have bled for up to 6 weeks straight! and stopped for only a mere 3 or 4 days and kicked right back in at full force again. I do not like it I am afraid I am chasing my husband away because I do get moody and irritable and I do get cramps like an SOB almost all the way through. Not to mention it really gets in the way of any hope i ever had for a sex life after kids. (YES it's possible ). If any one has any updates on these kinds of "extended periods": please share.View Thread
