    When did u all start ur periods after giving birth? Toby was born 5 weeka ago and is bottle fed. I stopped bleeding after birth about a week ago and had no tears from birth. This morning when I hav got up I am bleeding quite heavy and wondered if it cud b start of period. Ive had protected sex twice in last week and worried it could be because of that! (this is my first baby)

    I had my first period at 5+2 PP. It was really heavy, and lasted a couple of weeks iirc.
