    I just recently stopped brest feeding my daughter after BFing her for 9 1/2 months. going to school full time and working stopped my milk supply because i didnt have time to pump. my question is is it normal to bleed after you stop breast feeding? because i have been bleeding for 2 weeks straight now but i have no cramps what soever. its not a really heavy flow but i do have to use a pad or tampon. im not sure if i should go get checked out or if this is normal. thank you!

    Hello. I am not a medical profession, and if you are really concerned, i think you should go see your doctor for peace of mind.

    The only information i can offer is that my sister had irregular cycles while she was bf her daughter. She would interchangably bleed heavily for weeks for some cycles and then not have AF for several months.
