Lochia generally has three phases on the basis of the colour of the discharge:

* The first 1-2 weeks are characterised by a bright red discharge called lochia-rubra

* The discharge then turns brownish red and thinner and is called lochia-serosa

* After a few weeks, discharge turns yellow-white and is called lochia-alba
