Mumsnet hasn't checked the qualifications of anyone posting here. If you have medical concerns, please seek medical attention; if you think your problem could be acute, do so immediately. Even qualified doctors can't diagnose over the internet, so do bear that in mind when seeking or giving advice.
I'm 5.5 months postpartum. I had my first period 6 weeks after given birth, I'm now having a period every two weeks. The first one lasts a good nine days, then I have around a week clear, then I have another period that is 5-7 days long.
I was put on the combi pill at my 6 week postpartum check and continue on this. This pill stops you from ovulating.
I've never had a baby before, and I know it can mess with periods.
Anyone who has been in same boat, can you shed any light on when periods may settle to a normal one a month?
I'm more heavy now than I was pre-baby, but less painful which is something! Just getting me down having a period every other week.
I would seek medical advice from your GP asap. Bleeding like this every two weeks could make you anaemic.
I gave birth 11months ago i also suffered a very long 2nd degree tear downward but was not stitched. Now i feel so loose because the opening is so large i can't enjoy sex anymore. Can anything be done to help me because it might post me my marriage.
@Edwu I would guess you need to see your GP and ask to be referred to Gynecology to take a look and talk you through options?
