  • As far as the bleeding goes you'll probably want to switch birth control. Six weeks is way too long to be bleeding like that, although it is very common. As with the burning and discharge, it really sounds like an STD to me.

  • I think you should try and get in touch with your doctor and let him/her know what is going on with you. I personally think you need to see you doctor.

  • The bleeding and the burning urination are probably separate issues. I would get seen to be assessed for a urinary tract infection due to the burning sensation- they are really painful and if not treated they can spread to your kidneys, which can make you really sick (trust me- I've been there- peeing blood and a fever of 104 F, it wasn't nice!) The spotting is more likely to be due to bc but if you've never really stopped bleeding after childbirth you might want to get that looked into at your appt in Jan.
