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.? Periods can become a bit heavier after pregnancy but a tampon every 45 min seems a lot. I'd see your OB-GYN, esp. if heavy bleeding continues, cramping, fever, dizzy or weak. ...Read more

Maybe early November: Assuming normal, regular periods, the easiest way to calculate your due date is to subtract 3 months and then add 7 days from the first day of your last period. In this case that would be nov. 6. A baby is considered full term from 3 weeks before to 2 weeks after that date. Whenever possible it is best to confirm your due date with a pelvic sonogram in the first 3 months. ...Read more

Miscarriage: Having one miscarriage is not a predictor for future PG's. After 40 years of practice, I am amazed at the # of women who have had one miscarriage. You may not know many, but it is surprising how many women will inform you of there's after they find out you have had one. It is wise to wait for a few normal periods until trying to get PG again. ...Read more

Not if negative : Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. I am answering this 6 days after you wrote in. So, I am hoping that you already have an answer. Implantation spotting can be pink or brown. The only way you will know if this was implantation vice a light period is by taking a pregnancy test. Good luck. ...Read more
