Post subject: Bleeding again
I bled for 4 weeks after the birth so it stopped sometime last week and today I've started bleeding bright red blood again. I didn't think I'd have a period yet as I'm breastfeeding. Is this normal?

Exactly the same happened to me - I've got a gp appointment on friday, and I'm going to ask her about it then. A friend of mine whose lo is a few months older than Lucy has reassured me intermittant bleeding whilst breastfeeding is normal, but i want to be certain!

hey Mandy

could well be your periods coming back, or a singel period - mine started up back to almost normal at 5 weeks after I had Isaac, despite breastfeeding. Its a really odd area - everyone is different on this so pretty much everything is considered 'normal' lol.

That first period seems to last a long time for most ladies though - about 6 days or so seems common. Definitely worth checking with HV or GP though - have you got your 6 week check booked in yet?
