I've started bleeding today, with what seems like a period, but bubs is not even 4 weeks old yet!! And I'm exclusively breast feeding 2-3 hourly during the day and no more than 4 hourly overnight. I did not expect this at all and am quite confused and a little worried. I have not started and hormonal contraception as yet either. Was waiting for my 6 week checkup.
Not sure if it's related, but I've also been getting really bad headaches when I breastfeed, and had a constant migraine for 2 weeks straight after the birth. Doctor just seemed to think that the headaches are hormonal and wasn't too concerned.
Should I be worried?? When did others period return??
