Has anyone else had the opposite problem?

by Melissa

I am exclusively breastfeeding and my baby is about 3 mo.

After I stopped postpartum bleeding I started my period a week later. Then the following month I had a period and after it ended I started again a week later! I DO NOT want to have my period this often! Any advice??

More than one period

I've actually heard from a few mothers who have experienced the same issue as you. It seems to be quite common. Found this link that you might want to check out...


It could be the hormones that are settling still, although not common, it could also be something else such a piece of retained placenta or postpartum thyroiditis. If you continue to bleed more than once a month I would suggest that you see your doctor or midwife about it.

Please see someone that is "breastfeeding friendly"
