If it is red then I think that means it is freash blood and that you shouldn't have an infection. But if I were you I would definately be seeing a doctor about it even if it is just for peace of mind. Good luck.

may be you were having post pregnancy bleeding earlier and now it's your regular period. you can also have retained placenta that is giving you bleeding.....go see your doc...good luck!

I did this for 10wks, never a 24hrs w/out blood(never heavy but annoying) the DR told me it was hormones & that I was very fertile. I was also BF like crazy.  R u BFing? I ended up only having 1mo w/ no period & I BF for 8mo :(   I went to the DR 3xs b/c of this. BDing hurt too, I'd always start bleeding during it. R u? Wow I'd love to hear what your DR says. U R  the 1st person that I've heard bleed like I did. Pads suck after 2mo don't they? :)

You should really speak to your doctor as soon as you can.

It could be the placenta causing the bleeding, which can be harmful.

It could however be normal, I am just basing this on something which I read and not through experience.

Good luck.
