DS was born by CS in Jan this year and I have been bleeding on and off ever since. After numerous trips to the GP finally got an appointment for a TV scan at the hopsital and discovered I had a small amount of retained placenta and was given antibiotics - this was in April. Was still getting irregular bleeding and discharge and was given another scan which showed there was nothing there. Since the beginning of June I have been bleeding very 2 weeks for 5-7 days and it is just like a period. I am on the mini pill and have been since my 6 week post-natal check. Getting really worried and fed up with this. Any ideas what could be causing this?
its probably the mini-pill - it is very common to have irregular bleeding with it. I had periods every 2 weeks with both femulen and micronor and have now switched to cerazette and havent had a bleed now for 11 months - bliss!!
Same here. I've been on micronor for 4 months and had one month of non-stop bleeding (albeit light), then bleeding on and off ever since. My GP said that if this hadn't settled down into a normal 28 day cycle after 6 months that she'd recommend changing from the mini pill.
