Post partum bleeding at 8 weeks... placenta?

I"m 8 weeks post partum and suddenly have heavy bleeding and some clots. at my 6 week PP check they didn't suspect any extra placenta fragments as my uterus was back to normal size and no pain. I was also told that I need to take it easy. Could this be from being too active? Does ibuprofen make it worse?

Its most likely your first period. Just take some tylenol.

So now the cramping is gone and I think some tissue fragments have passed... thinking it was placenta tissue? When should the bleeding be done? Not a first period as I'm nursing and on the mini pill.

It's still possible to experience a period while nursing. It's just not as likely.  If it were the placenta you are at high risk of infection and need to see a doctor to check.
