I gave birth 6 weeks ago. Two weeks ago I stopped bleeding but have started again in the last day or so. Has this happened to anyone else and was it considered a problem?
I know technically it could be a period but I think this is unlikely as I am bf and it took a year for my periods to return following the birth of my other two dcs. I started doing some exercise dvds this week so am thinking this might be the cause.
As long as it's not really heavy bleeding, then I would put it down to the exercise making the 'wound' open up agin (yuk!). It took much longer with my third for the bleeding to stop so maybe it does take longer to heal fully when you've had several kids.
Most inprortantly, sit down woman! Two kids and a newborn and you're doing exercise videos!
Sorry to hijack thread, but this is not unusual then? I've had similar. Lochia seemed to stop around 5 weeks (had only been very light up to then) then restarted around 6 weeks. Then I began taking cerazette and have been bleeding ever since (8 weeks post partum now). Weirdly, when I took cerazette before getting pregnant, I didn't have any periods, breakthrough bleeding or spotting ever. I'm also EBF. I'm still feeling some discomfort 'down there' - not really sure how to describe it.
