Yes you still have bleeding. But the good thing is that it wont last as long. Cuz while they're in there they will clean you out. I think my bleeding lasted like 3 or 4 weeks. As far as sex they recommend at least 6 weeks but hey if you feel up to it I would go for it. Just go slow though!!
i had a c section 1/3/09 and my vaginal bleeding only lasted like a week and it was like an extremely light period. i'm guessing, like everything that the amount of bleeding and time varies from person to person. i waited two weeks after my c section to have sex, but you have to take it easy and be careful of the incision,
yes the afterbirth(blood) has to come out somehow. you went 9 months with no period and it has to come out. you should only bleed for 2 weeks and then have your period at around week 4.
You still have some vaginal bleeding after a c-section, but no where near as much, more like a light to moderate period and it usually lasts for no more that 2 weeks. The gerenal rule for sex after having a baby is not for the first 6 weeks, but some doctors say 4 weeks for a c-section.
