AF at 5 weeks post partum?

Is it possible that AF can arrive already??? While EBF? I am confused! It sure feels like AF but hardly any flow, maybe still PP bleeding? Anyone else this early on while ebf?

  • Had you stopped bleeding from delivery yet? I stopped fully bleeding around 4-5 weeks, then got my first visit from AF at 8 weeks. And all the while EBF.

  • My pp bleeding came and went until about 6 weeks. Have you been more active this week? Before 6 weeks I would be more inclined to think that it's PP bleeding and not your period.

  • If it is light, I'm more inclined to think it's still some residual bleeding. This happened to me...bleeding seemed to stop at 6 weeks and then some spotting again for a day or two around week 8.

    Same here.  Several of us have gone through the same thing.

    Me too, mine came and went until 9 weeks!

  • I was told that anything before the 6 week mark was still PP bleeding. I highly doubt you have AF BFing or not.
