I have spotting between periods. I am 18 months post-partum and still breastfeeding. I have had cervical ectropions in the past. What could it be?
Ectropion v. BF: Definitely either ectropion or breast feeding could be the cause. When a woman breastfeeds, she has elevated levels of prolactin, a hormone essential for breastfeeding. Prolactin can interfere with a regular cycle. Ectropions (benign) can also be associated, but more with post-coital spotting of bright red blood. If you're worried, see your doctor for an exam! be well. ...Read more
Is it normal to have a super super heavy period after having a baby! I'm 3 months post partum and going through a super tampon every 45 min - ?
Not normal: Is this the first period since delivery? Was everything ok with delivery and did bleeding stopped as expected afterwards? Were your periods heavy before preg.?

Pelvic relaxation: After having children, the ligaments that support the uterus (and cervix along with it) can be less strong than before, and for some women their pelvic organs (uterus, bladder, etc) can 'fall' (or prolapse). The fact that your delivery was relatively recent (and the fact that you are still breastfeeding), means you may get some improvement in this 'stretching' over time. It doesn't sound worris. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
