    ive had my postpartum bledding for around 5 weeks after my birth, a few days ago i passed a clot and the bleeding seemed to have ceased. now its come back but heavy and proper blood (sorry tmi)
    can i assume this is my first proper period or should i be worried???

    i dont know whether its my period or the lochia getting heavier and therefore i should worry.
    please help,, im confused xxx:cry:

    Yeah mine was like that too, I thought I had a period too, but the fact that I've had nothing for 6 months+ makes me think it wasn't. I think its common for lochia to stop and start again.

    Aw, well it's defo normal so don't worry. Think it takes a few cycles to get back to 'normal' anyway.
