  • i had the exact same problem. and i was bleeding for almost 5months.

    some days it was light then it was really heavy bleeding again.

    You should def. get checked by your OB. in my case it was the wrong mini pill i was on. totally messed everything up. so i had to get a new one.

  • Mine did the same thing. I bled for about 3 weeks, spotted a little while after and then at around 7 weeks I bled for about 7 days. It was my period :-) It's normal to get your period about 6-7 weeks post-partum EVEN if you're breastfeeding. My son BFs every 2 hours on the dot and I still got my period.
