  • Probably not your periods even if you are formula feeding.
    It's more likely just some stuff that hasn't come out yet and needs to come out.
    I had what I thought was my period at 4 weeks post partum and had already stopped bleeding for a week... but my OB said it wasn't my period. I had cramps and heavy bleeding.
    I breastfeed and my REAL period came back at 6 months. But I think even if you don't, it usually comes back more around 2-3 months.

  • My period lasted at least 3 weeks after having my son.
