Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

postpartum bleeding?!

1 answers
I had my son 8 weeks ago.. I had the postpartum bleeding off and off for 6 weeks adn this just stopped about 2 weeks ago.. however now I am spotting all over again.. I started spotting yesterday a little then over night it got really heavy and its done all over again.. should I be worried.. I mean I never had problems before having my son.. I am also breastfeeding so I didnt think I would start periods again for a few months since with my daughter I didnt start again til like 5 or 6 months later.. but even if it was me getting periods again that isnt normal is it? I am just concerned as to what I should think and yes we have been having unprotected sex because I didnt think that it was near time I would start cycling again..

If you would call it "heavy," then I think you should call the doctor. I couldn't tell if you meant that you were having sex before the first six weeks were up, but I was told to wait 6 weeks, so you may want to mention that when you call. Good luck!
