So, I have been using a diva cup. Before my DD who is 1, I would lose 2 to 3 oz a day, total. Now, since starting my period again I've been bleeding very heavily. So I looked it up. You're supposed to lose 60-80 mLs total for your whole period. Since I use a cup, I can measure exactly my blood loss. I lose that & more every day for 3 days and still bleed another 2 to 3 days. More than 4x the normal amount.
My dh says go to the doctor. Im afraid they'll put me on medication that isnt compatible with breastfeeding. But at the same time, my periods are painful, excessively heavy, im tired and hormonal for days during and after. What would you do?
