  • Sounds similar to my first period after having my son. I thought i was having some kind of hemorrhage, but my doc said it was just my period returning. It will get better each month from now on.

  • Mine was pretty painful as well. I hope it's gets better. So far I've only gotten one

  • Yea, that's what my periods were like BEFORE the baby, whole reason I got preggo lol. Yeah I'm 7 mo pp & I've had a few like that. Bath, ibuprofen, heating pad, rest, intake more iron & try not to do too much physical exercise. If the pain is sooooo bad then call your dr & get something stronger. For me I couldn't even get out of bed it hurt so much, thought I was having complications. Hang in there!!!

  • I had horrendous painful cramps during my first few periods but the first was by far the worst. Hang in there!
