Answer: Hi, You need to check that you don't have an infection that is causing the prolonged bleeding. Contraception can also cause bleeding so this needs to be checked too. Talk to your maternity hospital too as they may be able to direct you to the best doctor to see in your area. Best wishes, Alex.
