Should go back to normal
by: Tracy

Hi Ashlee

It sounds to me as if your body is going through hormonal changes right now, due to the fact that you started your period last month.

I don't think you need to worry, it should regulate itself again and go back to normal soon (normal while breastfeeding could include skipping months and/or spotting). If you have more than one period again next month, I would suggest that you see a doctor.

Bleeding almost all the time
by: Anonymous

I was the same. 2 months after my 3rd baby was born, i was bleeding for 7-10 days.

It would stop for 5 days then it starts again. I was bleeding a lot i was in the shower 3-4 times a day as it would go through my clothes. Went to the doctor a couple times & had an ultra sound but they couldnt figure out what was going on.

I was bleeding so much i started to be anemic & have fatigue. I finally met another doctor who knew what she was doing & said it was just a major hormonal imbalance and prescribed noriday minipill.

I wasn't allowed a full pill as its not good while breastfeeding.anyway, long story short, the minipill helped! My bleeding stopped completely! Haven't had any bleeding or spotting at all.

My son is 7 months now and no bleeding. i still haven't got my period either. Im not anemic anymore and im happy the whole bleeding nightmare have stopped.
