First period after pregnancy

My first period after pregnancy was very sore but I found it lighter than usual. I suppose it depends on the individual - I was still having lochia at 6 weeks and didn't get a period until DS was 14 months old.

Congratulations on your new baby smile

I had my little boy just under 6 weeks ago and I'm having my first period but it's so heavy!!
Is this normal?
My periods before were mainly very little loss but kind of thick, this one is a lot of liquid blood with lots of thick tiny dark bits in it and my womb area is quite sore feeling

Did anyone experience something similar?
