AF came on April 28th and lasted until May 7th. Seemed normal. Everything had stopped totally and I resumed normal um.. relations. That too was normal, no trauma. On the 11th I started bleeding again. Color varied bright red, to nearly black. And it was very "iron-ey" almost like postpartum in odor.(sorry TMI I know) The first day was enough for a tampon, now just a day pad. Its still continuing tonight, quite a bit when I wipe.<br><br>
What the heck is going on?<br><br>
I am still nursing but I have been for 4 years and this has never happened. I've had AF back for about 6 months now and its been regular. (youngest is 16 months) We are not preventing, but not really trying often either. I did take an HPT the day before my period started and it was negative.<br><br>
Everything I read says bleeding before AF is due is ok, bleeding after AF is over is not okay.. and I'm kinda worried and confused as to what can be causing this. Any thoughts?

sorry no one has answered your question...<br><br>
I have no advice for you, other than going to the doctor... I really dont know why you would be bleeding so much... sorry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">
