Period after giving birth adult content

I had my first child almost 8 weeks ago. I stopped bleeding about 3 weeks ago for just shy of a week and then started again. I still am but now instead of being a dark rust color its bright red. I've tried researching to see if this is my period but its lasted for almost two weeks and thats def not normal for my period. Was wondering if its my period and if not when could i start. I'm strictly breastfeeding.

  • could be your period.

    did you notice any clot passing before the bleeding started? a left over clot may have finally broke off and that caused the bleeding.

  • No there was no clot. The bright red didnt start until after my PP check up on Wed.

  • Have you been overdoing it, or have you started exercising or anything since your checkup? I was always told going from darker blood back to bright red was the first sign you need to take it easier.

  • Its probably your period. I always got my period between 4-6 weeks after giving birth, even when I was breastfeeding. Some women are just that lucky.

  • i think it could be, often periods are worse/longer the first one after a baby.
