Lochia or period? Tmi alert...

I am 29 days post partum & ff my baby. Lochia had been almost nothing for last 2wks, very small amount of pale discharge only a penny size amount couple of times a day.

I was discharged by the community MWs yesterday but today have had red bleeding with some period type cramps. With hindsight I have had pmt this week which I put down to general stress as hadn't even considered starting period so soon.

Any advice appreciated as apart from anything else I would like to know if it is ok to use tampons now if it is a period.

It sounds like a period to me but I'm not an expert. Don't know about safety and sorry if this not first baby so maybe you've experienced this (or could be just me blush) but I found it was a while before tampons fitted iyswim. But fine now (well will be but had dc3 six days ago!)
