I gave birth 5 and a half weeks ago, my bleeding turned pink then brown bout 3 weeks ago, then lessened until i thought it had almost stopped last week. 3 days ago i started to bleed bright red blood interchangeably with brown blood, could this be a period starting?
At the same time i started to expell red blood again, i started having these abdominal 'sensations' sort of uncomfortable twinges, but nothing like premenstrual cramps...
I would have been worried about possible retained placenta but have had no real pain or fever or anything.
Has anyone had a similar blood loss? I am EBF but could this be the first period even though i didn't really stop bleeding myself more than a day before it started again?
Any insight would be much appreciated!
