Stopped bleeding, started again LayLu (girl); 17 kids; Virginia 4007 posts

I'm 8 weeks and 4 days PP today, around 7 weeks PP I had stopped bleeding (FINALLY!) and SO and I decided to "celebrate." Well the next day I was bleeding again.. not too heavy or anything, just regular bleeding. Nothing hurts, but could something have maybe ruptured? I'm nervous because at my 6 week PP checkup they didn't do a vaginal exam to see if my stitches had healed or anything and I didn't think it was that big of a deal because I know some doctors won't check until 2+ months after you've delivered, but the fact that it stopped and started again is making me nervous. Should I request an exam? Has this happened to any of you ladies? TIA!

It's possible that it's your first pp period. There's no way to know for sure, but that's how it worked out for me.

I thought that too, but normally I know when I'm about to get my period, I get killer back pains and get all crampy once it starts. Ugh. I wish there was a way to know for sure.

I stopped bleeding at 6 weeks plus a couple days and a week later I got my first period. I bet that's what it is I say if its gone after 4-7 days it was just your period.

I probably should have taken note of when I started bleeding again so I could keep track of it. Damnit. I'm just assuming it's because we had sex since it started bleeding again the next day, although it'd be great if it was my period and stopped in a few days. I'm tired of bleeding! :x
