Is this normal in post-partum recovery?

Posted by   + Show Post

I have been out of the hospital for about a month. For the past couple weeks, I had stopped bleeding entirely and was only passing a yellowish-whitish discharge that I was told is normal towards the end.


However, all of the sudden yesterday I started to bleed again. Not an alarming amount, but full in color, almost like a lighter period. Then this afternoon I passed a small clot as if I was in the earlier weeks of recovery.


Is this normal or did something get strained, perhaps? I have yet to return to me Doctor, so should I be concerned? I am unsure. Thanks!

Is this still possible so early on when breastfeeding? I got the impression from a few family members and friends that you don't have a period for a long time when breastfeeding exclusively.

 You're all normal momma, after baby period/bleeding/discharge is no fun.

Everybody is different. It's probably just your period, but if you honestly feel its not right just call your dr and ask if you need to come in.
