    I have a Question

    Advertisements
    I've had 5 kids, yet I'm asking this anyway .

    My bleeding had gotten REALLY light for weeks and almost went away and then today it picked up a little bit. Not HEAVY, but it's more red and a bit more today. Gracie is 5 weeks old. Could I be starting a period or is this probably still the PP bleeding? I am also exclusively breastfeeding and I started the mini pill almost 3 weeks ago.

    Ugh screw this. I have been having severe headaches, nausea and breast tenderness (even though I am not engorged and do not have clogged ducts) for over a week now and it didn't even accur to me until now to look at the mini pills side effects.. That's what is causing it! I'm going to stop taking them. We'll just use condoms for now.

    Awww that sucks I bled til 6 weeks when I got the IUD put in and then I bled for a few months PAST that I assume because of the IUD. I think I finally stopped completely (including periods, haven't had one in a month or two) thank god.

    bleeding sucks. especially with headaches and tenderness and nausea!

    I started spotting about 3 days after I took the mini-pill at 6 weeks pp.
    I also stopped taking it too, because I found it DRASTICALLY dropped my milk supply.

    6-8 weeks is normal, as long as it's not more than a pad in an hour.

    The more children you have the longer the bleeding can last, at least for me. Also if you are lifting more than the baby, vaccuming etc... it can cause a little spotting.

    The exact same thing happened to me after my second kid. I was nursing, went on the mini pill. Thought the pp bleeding had stopped and then it started and then it stopped and then it started. I think it was the minipill messing with me. Didn't get a regular period for months. That annoying off and on spotting stopped around 8 weeks pp.

    I spotted for more than 2 months after Cameron and Wyatt. With Zayne it wasn't bad though. I vacuum at least once, if not twice a day and I am constantly moving and cleaning stuff lol.

    I hope the spotting was just from the mini pill and now that I'm stopping it, the spotting will stop . I DON'T want a period yet! It messed with my supply last time.
