My son was born 10 weeks ago today. I stopped bleeding completely around 6 weeks then a week later I got what I thought was my period that acted just like it and lasted 3-4 days. Then a week after it was over I started bleeding again and lasted another 4 days. Now I just started bleeding like my period again. Is this normal?



If you've been through it, how long does it take for your period to get back to normal if you had a 28 day cycle before getting pregnant?

I had a normal cycle before pregnant, and I stopped bleeding 4 or 5 weeks after. I had my first period at 7 weeks

Did it go back to every 28 days after that first period after pregnancy?

It is actually very normal for you PP bleeding to stop and start many times. It can take months to go back to normal.

Okay thanks. That makes me feel a lot better.

I don't know yet, I haven't had a 2nd period yet. And I would assume probably not right away because im back on the pill and I meant to start it after my period but I think I started it a week after.
