    My lochia went for 6 weeks for both births. Another 6 weeks and AF was back after my twins. This time round I had two weeks in between lochia finishing and AF back with DD. All fully breastfed. I actually just think breastfeeding makes not a dot of a difference to a LARGE portion of women, so I don't know why the idea is pushed that so long as you breastfeed you wont have a period.

    So to get your period back so soon, how long did your PP bleed go for?? Just curious....
    2 weeks. I could get by with a liner after that. Mostly it was still clean. But some days I had residual bleeds.
    Now at 4 1/2 wks I had bleeding and thought my PP bleed had returned. Took me all day to realise what it was really. It just didn't even occur to me. In fact I wasn't far off going to hospital thinking I had an infection or something.

    I didn't really have much lochia. I remember my last prenatal appt and my ob said "oh you're a redhead, redheads bleed in labour". He was absolutely right. I must of lost all my lochia in labour coz that first toilet trip after birth, well I was expecting a flood of blood only to find it was straw coloured discharge lighter than my normal AF.
    I knew AF returned coz of *tmi* the smell.

    I gave birth three weeks ago and bled red blood probably about first two weeks and since it's been very light brownish colored blood not heavy at all. I bled a lot the first day I gave birth and the day after I thought I was bleeding to death it was horrible. I'm wondering when af will arrive
