That after you have a baby, you go right into your period.
I always thought after pushing a baby out, it would be expected that you bleed.

You do bleed right away... but I don't believe it's counted as a PP period.

You bleed right away, on average up to 6 weeks... but that's not your period

You do bleed. Some longer than others, and some more painful that others.

Uh well...it's not a period, per say...I mean, you're expelling the products of conception from your uterus the same way you'd expel products of ovulation but it's not really the same thing.

its not technically a period. its you shedding extra blood, the lining of your uterus, bacteria, etc

It's post partum bleeding, but not technically your period. The pp bleeding can last up to 6wks or so...then stops...then the next round of bleeding afterwards is your first period. But not everyone is the same, especially if you're BFing or on BC right away.

Quoting malibu.:" You do bleed right away... but I don't believe it's counted as a PP period."

See i didn't either.
But when i went to get my BC pills, i had to fill out a paper that asked that.
I put down my last before i concieved DD. When i get in the room, the nurse lady asks why i havent had a period in almost a year, i told her because i had a baby, she then asks "You didn't bleed after?"
i told her of course i bled who doesn't?
she then told me that it was a period and ask had i had anymore since April 30th, When i had the baby. I put on there i as breast feeding and i heard that can put it off, but she looked at me as if i should be worried and gave me a pregnancy test.

Mmm i didn't think so, ugh people at planned parenthood don't know what their talking about!
Thats why i didn't trust them with giving me an IUD.

That nurse is nuts. It's not a period it's called lochia and its not a period at all.
