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.


Good luck!
