I did then once again I did after a cone procedure which resulted in a hysterectomy to stop the bleeding (plus a lot of blood products both times).

I did after my 5th baby but I also had a placental abruption with her. I had to have a transfusion. I didn't have it again with my 6th and never had it with my others.

I had hemmoraging after my d&c a couple of weeks ago. The nurse messaged my uterus and called my ob who ordered extra fluids and doubled the pit. This slowed it way down. I am going to ask at my post op appt if this puts me at risk when I have the next one.

I did after one delivery with a cord prolapse, but did not for subsequent pregnancies.

I did not have a hemorrhage but I do know that if you are on Magnesium Sulfate during/after delivery, then you are more at risk.

Postpartum hemorrhage

Postby jokell29 » Tue Mar 11, 2008 05:34 pm

Did anyone else experience this after delivery? I recently found out that we're expecting again (not intended b/c of previous PE with pregnancies) and after my last delivery I had hemorrhaging immediately and my OBGYN had to put several suppositories in me to stop the bleeding. Luckily it worked but I recently read that a risk factor to having it happen is PIH.

If you did hemorrhage, did it happen again with other deliveries? Just curious.
