Hi all, hope you are all well!
So I had my daughter 3 months ago...
Bled after birth for about 4 weeks then it stopped, at 5 weeks it started again very heavy, not too sure if this was a period or just more lochia... Mentioned to doctor he said could be either so I forgot about it.
Then at 6 weeks I started taking the mini pill which I have never taken before then about 2 weeks into taking it I started bleeding again for about 2 weeks not really bright red but brown and pink, then it stopped thought maybe it was because I had never taken the mini pill before, so carried on taking it again about 2 weeks after started bleeding again for another 10 days (ish) by this point I was convinced it was pill so stopped taking it.
Should mention that every now and then from 6 weeks partner and I have had sex, well about a week ago once I stopped bleeding and we had sex and bang-bleeding again. So now thinking it may not of been pill causing the bleeding but the sex.
I think we did it about 6/7 days ago and yesterday it had very nearly stopped (it was more discharge colour) but this morning woken up and bleeding red again 😥
I expected to bleed after sex maybe the first few times, but not this far after birth.
Ok it wouldn't worry me if I could wear tampons as there isn't much blood (out of sight, out of mind) but since birth it feels super uncomfortable to wear tampons (sex isn't too bad but scar tissue on outside hurts) as it feels like everything that's supposed to be up and inside vagina is coming out.
Sorry about the graphic information!
Forgot to mention-not sure if it makes a difference but I'm exclusively breastfeeding.
This is my first child so may be over reacting and all this could be normal, just need advice! Thank you all X
