I'm on the pill and my first PP period is on day 23 - it goes away for a day or two and then begins again full force, cramping, back pain and everything.

Apparently this is normal and can last for up to 6 months pp. It's my first baby though so I have no previous experience to judge by...

The first few periods can be really bad. I was told as long as the clots are smaller than quarters, it's fine. Your body is cleaning house. I also noticed from my first baby to my second... the recovery from my second was a lot worse. I assume that subsequent babies can be worse each time.
