TMI warning!!!

i gave birth 5 months ago today to my first :D

I do not breast-feed unfortunately. My period resumed Month 2 post partum and was much shorter, around 3 days long. Last month I got a 1 day period, a heavy flow, cramps then gone after 24 hours. 3 days prior to that I had hip and some minor pain on the left side of my pelvis but it was on and off. Just to be safe I went to a private hospital (we were overseas for a month) and they did a sonogram, pregnancy test. I am fine they said, no cysts or anything concerning (even did a blood test). Then I had the 1 day period on the 21st of jan. Well wednesday morning after intimacy with dh, I noticed brown spotting. It was only when I wiped not coming down. I went to OBGYN friday, pregnancy test was negative, she did a pelvic exam and said everything feels fine probably just old blood from that 1 day period, is coming down now. Plus all the traveling and everything may have thrown my cycle off.

Today, Im still have brown discharge. But like I mentioned it is not coming out. Its up there and appears when I wipe. Sometimes I will see Red. I have symptoms of my period like acne flair-up, body aches, etc..but no cramps. IDK what to think? Anyone else have this before? I had a papsmear less than a year ago, normal. I was tested for everything under the sun during pregnancy and Im pretty healthy. I just feel like the only person whose ever gone through this..

Any insight? Thanks in advance!

:( I hope we can get answers or something. I hate that everytime I go to a Dr I wish they could pinpoint right away "Its this" instead of "its probably"...idk.

Your body can take up to a year to regulate your periods again after having a baby.Relax momma.It took my body 6 months after my son and 8 months after my daughter to get back on track with my cycle.Give your body time it's been they a lot.

It can take awhile for your body to regulate itself again. Buy a bunch of dollar store tests, and test monthly until your periods regulate.
