Hi, I had a baby January 19th. I bleed for 6 wks post partum. Then when my baby was about 2 1/2 months I spotted for a day or two. 3 1/2 wks later I had what I think was a normal 5 day period. Then 8 days later (yesterday) I started spotting again. Today I am still spotting. I haven't had sex for at least a week so I know it can't be from that.  Do you think this is something I should be worried about? I've never had spotting like this before.

I would recommend consulting your OB/Gyn or midwife.  While spotting like your can be part of a normal hormone fluctuation after birth while breastfeeding, your healthcare practitioner can assess any other symptoms, do a physical exam, and run labs to diagnose that cause of your spotting.

 

Warmly,

Dr. Jennifer
