Period?

Hi girls!

Today I am 6 weeks and 4 days post childbirth. I started the mini pill exactly two weeks ago. I am breast feeding but only half of the time. The rest of the time we use formula. I haven't had post partum bleeding in over three weeks. I have however spotted lightly off and on since starting the new birth control. Today I started bleeding in what I would consider a medium to light day on a period with very small clots. Does that sound like a period even though I'm breast feeding or should I call the doctor?

  • Damn... I had hoped she wouldn't show up for months. No such luck.

  • That is why I refuse to do the mini pill again.  I got my period after only being on it for like 2 weeks also last time.  The pill is one of the kinds that you have to take the exact same time each day no if ands or buts, and I could never remember to take it.

  • I'm sorry. That sucks!!! Stupid bleeding.

  • Yeah, two weeks ago, at 5 weeks after baby was born, I had three days of medium bleeding (with only spotting the week before that)...and then nothing. And not even any spotting so I'm confused if that was a period or just more after labor bleeding.

    For once in my life I have no idea what my cycle is and it is driving me nuts!

  • I'm EBF and my son has never gone more than 4 hours between feedings... I was so mad when my period returned at 7.5 weeks pp... I actually refused to admit it was my period (and it was pretty light) until exactly 28 days later when it returned again.

    Ugh... I can sympathize! It's so not fair!

    Finally pregnant through the miracle of embryo adoption after 3 1/2 years TTC.
    One angel in heaven: 2/23/2010.
    Adopted 6 embryos in September 2011.
    FET with 2 perfect embryos on 4/26/2012.
    Beta #1 (12dp5dt): 315
    Beta #2 (14dp5dt): 714
    Beta #3 (16dp5dt): 1909
    U/S 5w4d: One perfect little bean.
    Ecstatic to be pregnant; but sad that one of our embies joined his/her sibling in heaven.
    U/S 6w5d: HR was 123 bpm; absolutely perfect!

  • I'm in this unlucky camp too. 6 weeks pp and my period showed up this past weekend. It took me a day to accept it was my period. I also just started the mini pill and I don' t know how it's going to go. I see condoms in my future.

    I'm not taking anything and this is what happened to me a couple days ago. Wasn't sure if it was my period returning or just the finish of my PP bleeding.
