I had my baby almost 5 months ago and I still bleed at least twice a week or even more. My doctor said this is normal, I'm starting to think it's not! BTW I breastfeed exclusively so my doctor blames abnormal bleeding on that. So anyways just wondering if anyone thinks that is weird?

  • 5 months does seem a little long to be bleeding. Maybe ask for a second opinion. I never bled that long, and I have breastfed with all my babies. My period started up one month after I stopped bleeding from my daughter's birth, but it came regularly - once a month.
