Spotting and milk production

Hi, I had my baby 5 months ago and have been having regular periods from 6 weeks, the are every 4 weeks and last 5 days. My last period started on the 9th of October and then on the 25th oct I had spotting and my breasts feel full and have been leaking. (I gave up b/f 2 months ago) any1 have any ideas what could be going on?

HI,
Leaking breasts can be because of high levels of prolactin and can be suppressed with drugs. Hormonal imbalance in such a situation can lead to abnormal bleeding. Consult your Doctor.
Hope this helps.

Hi,
How are you? What other symptoms are present? Spotting and milk production at this time may be attributed to hormone changes and  usually resolves when the hormone levels return back to normal.  However, if it persists, further evaluation may need to be done to rule out gynecological issues and implantation bleeding. Take care and do keep us posted.
