It sounds to me like your period starting up again, the exact same thing happened to me and my doctor said it was my period, the first one can be really bad or really light, usually starts brown then turns pink or red.

Hi
I'd like to start having some bleeding so I can start my contraceptive pill (was bfeeding) stopped about 2wks now as baby was too hungry.
I forgot with my other children how soon I got my period after stop bf guess it varies but how soon was it 4 any of you to have a PROPER period? hope mine comes in 2wks (one month altogether) & do u think I am "safe" (not 100%) as soon as I start taking pill or am I prone to get preg within the first week/two of taking them til it kicks in?
Thanks
