Not sure...before 6 weeks is usually still lochia, which can definitely come and go.
My lochia was on and off for six weeks this time. At 7 weeks pp, it was gone for a few days like usual, then came back--but this time it looked and smelled like a period, not the lochia, and came with light PMS symptoms/light cramps. Happened again at 10 weeks. MW said it sounded like a period. I'd also been having problems with breastmilk supply & hormones, so more likely for me.
I've had retained membranes before which gave some spotty pp cramping, but it didn't really resemble PMS.
