7 week old baby and pregnancy scare

NOt sure where to post this.

my DS is 7 weeks old and I also have a DD who is 2.5. I love them rediculously! Myself and DH have decided that unless we win the lottery we are happy with our 2 beautiful least for now!


6 days ago when my DS was 6 weeks old we resumed our "boot knocking" as DH calls it!!! As far as contraceptives go- I am exclusively Breast feeding every 2-4 hours day and night, I had started taking the mini pill 3 days earlier (although i am aware it wouldnt be fully affective for 7 days) so, to be sure, we also used a condom!

warning... TMI..... the condom came off at the very end (no further "activity"??) but I wasnt worried as I thought the above combination was more than sufficient.

Now 6 days later I am bleeding. it is fresh blood at the moment so I am hoping it is the return of my periods but i am very worried that it is implantation bleeding as i know it is rare for periods to return this early when EBF (they didnt return til my DD was 7m last time).

I am going to do a pregnancy test ( i know i need to wait a while for an accurate test) but was wondering if anyone had any experience of this????

Boot knocking? confused.

Using breast feeding as a contraceptive isn't ideal but if you did nothing until the condom was on then you might be okay. Could the bleeding be due to you taking the mini pill?

I took mini pill before dd (and never had bleeds at all) but post her had to stop it as bled continuously for 3 weeks when I tried.
Doc said hormones are so different post birth reaction is often very different.
