    Default period after birth

    hi all

    just wondering if you have experienced this and if it is deemed "normal"

    I gave birth (via emergency c section) nearly 3 months ago. after I stopped bleeding I went straight on the pill.

    I have had a period 2 weeks ago but have missed taking 2 tablets this week and have started bleeding. tmi sorry but only very very light.

    Default period after birth

    Sounds like a withdrawal bleed but I'm not sure

    I was the same, went on the pill shortly after giving birth. I never used to have withdrawl bleeds prior to having DD, but do get them if I miss pills now. Other thing I suppose it could be is an implantation bleed if somehow your pill hasn't worked effectively but I'd think a withdrawl bleed is much more likely with the missed pills.
