Hi, I had to be taken to A&E by ambulance because of heavy bleeding with big frequent clots at almost 12 weeks post delivery. At hospital my blood test showed I am not anaemic, my blood pressure and temperature was normal. I was given medicine intravenously to reduce bleeding. When my bleeding signficantly decreased to a medium flow period, I was discharged in about 6 hours with blood clot medicine to take at home. I wasn't physically examined although I mentioned I had dull lower abdomen and lower back pain. I was also not offered an ultrasound. Since then I met my GP for an ultrasound referral and am currently awaiting to be contacted by hospital for an urgent Ultrasound as upon examination she confirmed my uteral is still pretty high up (near my navel) and has not gone down. I have a couple of big fibroids and had my breech baby by C-section (so I assume most of my placenta had been removed during my surgery). While I wait for my ultrasound I am worried and trying to figure out what could be the reason for such delayed haemorrhage. Pertinent to mention that since taking the medicines, my blood flow has reduced to a medium flow period. Thanks for your help.
