    Default Tmi.. Bleeding 6 weeks pp

    So I am exactly 6 weeks postpartum today. I have started bleeding again. Lochia stopped 2 weeks ago. I am exclusively breastfeeding. So my question is should I be concerned or is this my menstrual cycle starting? Sorry tmi

    It is possible it could be AF but hopefully for you it isn't. Have you been over doing it? To much walking, exercise, lift shopping etc? I know mine would restart if I over did it.
    If it continues on much longer I would see a doctor or OB as they do say by 6 weeks it should stop.

    Could be AF, or over exertion and a little unstable uterine lining coming away. I'd keep an eye on it, if it only lasts the week and doesn't get too heavy (as in looks to be menstrual rather than excessive) then you should get a half answer, no guarantee you'll get again next month anyway. If not, ask at your 6 week check?
