First pp AF?

Postby luvin » Fri Jul 13, 2012 5:31 am

On the 4th I woke up to some bleeding. I'd call it moderate. It was bright red. Lasted 2 days and totally stopped. We had sex the night before and it hurt but I assumed this was my first ppaf. Then since it had stopped we had sex again a couple of days later. As soon as we were done again, some bright red bleeding but this time it was just for an hour.

So, I'm concerned. This doesn't sOund like a period. We aren't on birth control, but if I were pregnant I wouldn't bleed like that, right? We haven't done the deed since. Anyone else have wacky cycles while breastfeeding? (baby is 6 months)

I can only say what happened to me: BF on demand around the clock, first PP AF at 3 1/2 months PP. DS was spacing out feedings at night which triggered it I think. My PP bleeding only lasted 2 1/2 - 3 weeks,andI started temp charting around 2 - 3 months PP. Saw the signs of ovulation so I was not surprised to start AF (but grumpy... she's supposed to stay away longer!).

My first cycles were longer than normal, but not on and off bleeding like you mentioned. You might talk to your doctor/midwife.

I was having bleeding after sex and it turned out that my tear didn't heal right. I have scar tissue and have to get it treated weekly until it goes away. Sorry :(

Ouch Jessm, that's what I was thinking. It hurt where I had tore but hen the pain went away as soon as we were done. I will make an appointment.

Should I take a pregnancy test? It would be really unlikely right? I just have this nagging feeling I should take one but logically I know with bleeding it would be negative. I guess I could get a dollar tree one just to ease my mind. Lol
