After I had my first bub I bled for ages on and off, and my doctor arranged for me to have a pelvic ultrasound to make sure that no tissue from the pregnancy remained in my uterus as that can cause odd bleeding. Happily it was all clear. I was told that it is not uncommon for women to have unusual bleeding for a while after having a baby because your hormones can take a while to settle again, and every woman is different in how long it takes.
If you're really worried though, and it sounds like you are, take yourself off to another doctor and get a second opinion. See as many doctors as you need to get the reassurance you need. You don't need this kind of anxiety detracting from this time with your new baby. Good luck.

As far as I am concerned it normal practice to have a smear once every 6 - 8 months ???
After my miscarriage I had a period like you and for every two weeks ( For the next 4 months ) blood with a snotty discharge, Doc said it uterine cleansing ( And got a second opinion with the same answer) and nothing to worry about.

You sound awfully stressed though, go to another Ob and get a second opinion if it keeps worrying you

she said they wont test it as i had one last year they will just refuse it. its only happened once today so i dont know itf its the last bit of blood from my period coming late or am pregnant again which i doubt. i just dont get it as it was like that after i stopped bleeding with amelia. i was bleeding for 4 weeks then stopped and then bits started to come and go. i might keep an eye out to see if it happens again, i am in no pain at all

It seems like you won't be comfortable without it so I say go to the doctor so you're not worrying about it anymore.

lol I was too. I definitely called my doctor on his cell phone because I thought something was seriously wrong. He chuckled at me (probably because I sounded so scared) and told me that it was something normal that happens with a lot of women. It was my 1st too.

I had something like that happen. I wasn't breastfeeding if that matters at all. Everything is fine with me. I was back to normal by the 2nd period.
