Should I be worried? I have a 26 month old son who still nurses frequently, so I am figuring maybe my hormones are just messed up right now from that. But I'm still concerned.
I thought I had my first post partum period back in September or October, but now I don't know what is going on, what is a period and what isn't. I had that episode, pretty light, lasted about the right length of time. Then a little over a month (maybe month and a half, but I have NEVER been regular as far as timing of my period, so that part is normal for me) later, beginning of November, I thought I started my period, but it was only very light spotting for 2 days. Then, in mid December, I had a similar episode as the first, which I considered my period. But then I started bleeding again on Christmas, and have been bleeding off and on since then. Sometimes it starts with bright red gush and then turns into spotting for a few days, then stops for a few days, then starts again!!!
What is going on????? Anyone had this happen when their periods started up again?
I would check more into this also; are you taking any meds? If I were you I would start charting if you haven't already. Keep track of everything: temps, cm, spotting/bleeding, anything else that is significant to your fertility. Try to get you know your cycle/pattern but at the very least keep good records. It also wouldn't hurt to take a pregnancy test. Breastfeeding will not make a period go off and on again; you are either having one or you are not.
