    So i'm exclusively bfing my 5 week old baby girl (ftm). well my SO and i DTD 2-3 weeks ago around the time my postpartum bleeding stopped I'd only been on the minipill 2 weeks (but because of the new baby ive forgoten to take them correctly) but we used spermicides. Yesterday though i thought my period had started already but it was only like a drop here and there. But it was like that today too? My cycle is usually 32days so tracking stuff like this is generally difficult so i'm mildly freaking out because it is way to soon

    Nah, the chances are sooooooo incredibly slim I wouldn't worry. You're EBF so that helps to prevent, you used spermicides so they help prevent. Also there is only a 20% chance in a normal TTC cycle where a couple have DTD a lot on all the right days. Plus your cycle would be longer after giving birth anyway because it takes a while for things to settle down. Obviously I could be wrong, but I would be willing to bet large sums of money that you're not pregnant!! ;)

    Oh and the blood could easily justbe because your uterus is still healing x

    It's probably still your lochia. And if you dtd then it could be your cervix healing still I bled after sex up until like 16 weeks postpartum and after my first cycle. Don't worry. Or stress if you can help that haha. It would be extremely unlikely that you would have conceived at this point.

    It takes a while if you are breastfeeding for your actual cycle to come back. Mine just came back 18 months postpartum.
