AF after pregnancy

Postby Daisy13 » Thu Sep 11, 2014 8:39 pm

Hey girls,

Was just wondering how everyone was finding their periods in the months after pregnancy and what was normal for you?

I was dreading it but used to heavier periods and painful ones so I found my first one pretty normal for me. Just started my second today and have a lot of stringy brown mucus with it but I think anything goes for the first few.

Just wondered what all of yours were like and when they settled down or did they ever go back to normal?

From what I remember the first few were killers for me. Passed a few clots too (Sorry tmi) but app normal. I went back on the pill/coil but when I came off them my cycles were long and depending on mth sometimes heavy/painful. But was like that before birth control too.

I got mine exactly 4 weeks later. The one after that was brutal clots, cramping etc. Currently getting accupuncture to try to get everything to settle down

Thanks for replies girls, second one over, very heavy for two days then extremely light and all gone now, was heavier than my first one. I bled for just over a month then just had normal discharge then period at 7 weeks. Started a really rusty brown, same with second one but couldn't be mistaken for anything but a period!
