Post subject: Bleeding after having baby (and 6 week check)
I had my dd 7 weeks ago and the lochia bleeding stopped after a couple of weeks. I then went back on the pill at 21 days as I was told I would be protected straight away (I'm not breast feeding).
I was fine for about a week and then started bleeding again (quite heavy, bright red like a period) and this went on until I had my week's break on the pill and then the bleeding stopped. I started it again yesterday and now I'm bleeding again! Its like the pill is making me bleed!! Anyone else experienced anything like this?
Also I had my 6 week check the other day and the doc didn't check my stomach. My mum says I need to have this checked to make sure my womb has gone back into place - is this right?
Think I'll have to go back to the docs to discuss both issues but just wondered if anyone had any advice?

I would definately go back to the GP, you might just need to try a different brand of pill. I can't remember my 6 week check but I had c-section and I remember the doctor checking my scar and feeling the bottom of my tummy but I'd told her that I had no feeling so that's probably why.
