I am almost six weeks PP, exclusively BFing. I stopped PP bleeding two weeks ago. Well today I have been cramping and started bleeding red blood. . .I know its my period. I though BFing was supposed to suppress this. Anyone else have this happen to them, is it normal?
Well, at only 6 weeks PP, its not liekly to be your period. Chances are, you are doing too much physically. I think anything int he first 8 weeks is usually considered normal PP bleeding. Of course, unless you have been charting, and can be certain you ovulated (which some women do even with BFing).
I would say its more likely to be a result of too much physical activity though, particularly if you bled until 4 weeks PP.
Ease up on the physical activities for another few weeks (really for about 8 weeks minimum you shouldnt be doign any heavy lifting or physical activities).
I know that I bled on and off for longer the six weeks so its possible it stopped and started up again. I didn't get my period back until around 7 months but there are lots of women who get it much earlier or later.
