This whole post may be TMI...
At the start of May (5th), my period returned 10 months after having DD (I am breastfeeding).
Pre-baby I would have a five day period- light, heavy, medium, medium, super light. And some pain on days 2 &3
Post baby- It was REALLY heavy and lasted for about 7 days. I had to change my tampons about every 3 hours, the whole way through until the last day. After it 'ended' I had spotting for approx 2.5 weeks. I had quite bad pain during the period and some cramping for the two weeks after.
I'm just wondering if this is normal after no period for 9 months of pregnancy plus 10 months of baby beastfeeding? Has my uterine lining been 'building up' for the last 10 months, which explains the heaviness and prolonged spotting?
The only other explaination I can think of is a miscarriage? Is there any way I can be sure? Is there any point in going to the doctor now?
Has anyone else had something similar?
