Spoting During Breastfeeding

Ok so I have a 3 month old and I'm still breastfeeding and the other day I noticed a little bit of blood on my panties. I'm concern because I'm currently on the Depo-Shot (misspelled) and I know that there might be some spotting but I have not gotten a period since giving birth....BASICALLY I just want to know if its normal.....

  • Yup, both because of the Depo & breastfeeding. I'm on an oral BC & I had spotting issues till month 5

  • I got the shot 2 weeks after giving birth and bled everyday until a week before the shot 'expired.' Once I was due for another shot (declined it, btw, on no BC now) I began bleeding again as a regular period. It's perfectly normal!
