I had my two weeks of bleeding after giving birth with an emergency c-section. OB checked me out and said "all is well" and sent me home with a clean bill of health. the next thing i know, i start bleeding again, stop and so on reoccurring two more times. my doc put me on 5 days of progesterone and i was supposed to start a single period (i'm exclusively breastfeeding) within 5-10 days. i've had some cramps and really bad stomach problems but no bleeding.... any one else have this issue? what was it? did those symptoms go away without help? i have a doc appt in 2 daysAnswer Question

I stopped bleeding after two weeks, then started bleeding again a few weeks later. I got checked out and everything was fine. I exclusively breastfed my son, too, and I didn't get my period until he was 9 months old. (a month after we introduced solid foods) I'm not sure why your doc would give you progesterone. Was it supposed to stop the bleeding or is it birth control? I know while breastfeed if you want a birth control pill you can only take a progesterone only pill. Pills with estrogen will mess up your milk supply.

Next question overall
What do you think of a 11 year old writing about drugs?
