I breastfed my son for 8.5 months. I started to spot at the 10th month mark, but thats all that is coming out - for days now. Shouldn't I have started bleeding by now instead of just spotting...unless this is normal for the first period? I know its a vaque question but, when "should" things start to look normal or is this cause for worry?
I spotted for my first period for only a day or two. Then 4 weeks later I had my first real period. It was about 1.5 months after I stopped breast feeding. My doctor said give it 3 months before I needed to come in and see her about it.
Got my first AF 16 weeks PP. I was exclusively breastfeeding so I was shocked (and upset) that I got it so soon. Mine went right back to normal from the first period but my sister's was spotting for a couple of periods (she was even wondering if it was a period at all).
