BFing and PPAF

Postby jessm » Fri Jan 18, 2013 8:25 am

So, I had my first PPAF on Dec 2. I had my second on Jan 2. Now, only 16 days later I am having brown spotting. What the heck? Why are periods so weird while BFing. I take the minipill, so you would think I'd be fairly regular.

Oh, I know. I've had 5 and I thought maybe my body would have it figured out by now but nope, had random spotting on CD 10 and 11 this time around. And, actually, the minipill does absolutely nothing to give you a regular cycle. And a common side effect of it is actually mid cycle spotting.

I have the Nexplanon implant, which also is progestin-only but a continual dose. I have also had the weird AF issues with strange spotting and irregularity. I think it's just the hormone. It's a pain though--I had 2 AF cycles back in the fall, then nothing so I was worried I was PG again! I thankfully am not (not ready for that yet!) but it's kind of annoying. I have HPTs at the ready in case AF decides to be crazy.

I used to be on the mini-pill for years, and I always had mid-cycle spotting. So annoying.
