  • It sounds like it is. When you start BC your body will take some time to adjust. So it could be irregular for a month or two.

  • It probably was. I just had my first period in 16 months and it was similar to what you described. I thought it was implantation bleeding at first followed by a miscarriage. I had NO signs of a period, just started spotting then a few days later, full on bleeding.
    Your body just needs to adjust. You just had a baby so your body is really out of whack. I think they say your period should start roughly 6wks after delivery? If that's true, you sound fine.
