I BF my daughter regularly for about 10 months. At that point I started to reduce the number of feedings and now (13 months and two weeks old) we are fully done BFing.
About a month and a half ago I had what I thought was the first period after breastfeeding, it was very painful, long (about 10 days) and spotty at the beginning but very heavy and with clots later on.
This month, I have not had a period, but I started having VERY light spotting about a week ago. No PMS symptoms yet either. My cycles used to be about 30 days long before the baby.
As of right now we are not using birth control since we would like to have another baby soon. Therefore, my initial thought was that I could be pregnant again. I have taken a number of home tests and are all negative. Also, I don't have any of the regular signs of pregnancy that I have experienced in my previous two pregnancies.
Has anyone had a similar experience? If so, how long did it take for your periods to become regular?
