My daughter will be 6 weeks on monday and was born by c section.I stopped bleeding a week ago and it was never heavy bleeding any way.So yesturday i had a painful ache in one of my knees and thought nothing of it.This morning i had proper period pain in my back and tummy and now ive just started bleeding bright red blood (sorry TMI) quite a bit of blood.Is it normal for woman to go back to having periods so soon after the birth even though im BFing?When i BF my other daughter all my periods stopped until she was 8 months old i just presumed this is what would happen this time
I'm glad for your post because I'm the same (had a c-section too) I too stopped bleeding a week ago but am now bleeding again and with slight period pain, my breasts even feel more tender today but maybe that's just coincidence?! I'll be mentioning it to my Dr at my 6week check up, it won't hurt to hear what he says but I'm not overly worried, just surprised that I'm on my period already.
It's quite common for breastfeeding women to have what they call the "six week bleed" at about the 6 week mark. Your period may come back afterwards but it's also possible that it won't come back again for months.
I'm like that too. Will be expecting AF anytime as I am 6 weeks. Thought I felt myself ovulating a couple days ago. I am exclusively BFing too. This is why I hate it when people think they are OK not to use birth control. I mean, fine, if you don't mind getting pregnant! lol
