I started bleeding today after my 6wk appointment. It's as much as a regular flow day and I have had some tissue. It's only been 3 weeks since I stopped bleeding and sice I was checked today I called my OB just to be sure. He said it was my period! I'm EBF and so annoyed that I didn't even get a month off! WTH ladies!?
I bled for a long time after DS...It stopped right around the 6 week mark and picked back up after they did the darn 'pap' at the 6 week post partum checkup. THe checkup was very painful too. After that it was like all hell broke lose and I was back to day one after birth...crazy. I bled for anther two weeks or so and then not again for about two years (another pregnancy and nursing).
Well... I started bleeding after not bleeding for 4 weeks. It lasted 2 days and now nothing. I've been trying to chart to see what's going on but it's so hard to say. Dr said only time will tell if it was a period or not. With my daughter I got mine right at 6 weeks also.
It could be just from your pap, or, right around this time where the umbilical cord was attached in your uterus heals and can cause bleeding.
I guess as my dr said... Only time will tell. It's a freaking bummer.
