OK this is my second baby. I nursed my first child for 2 years and during that time I didn't have any spotting or bleeding of any kind until she was 14 months old when I had my first post partum period.
I'm currently nursing my 7 month old and I have had some spotting and bleeding pretty much since I gave birth. At first it was once a month, then every couple of weeks and now it's 2-3 days a week, every single week. By spotting I mean I go to the bathroom, wipe and there is blood. I have to wipe 3-4 times before it's all gone but by the time I go to the bathroom next it's back. Yesterday I actually had a saturated spot on my panties. That's the 1st time it's reached my panties.
It's usually light red or pink and progresses to brown by the days end. It is often mucusy. I thought I might be PG but 3 BFN so no.
Is this normal while BF? Could it be something else? Should I contact the doctor for furthure investigation?
