Hi Mams

My baby is 6 weeks old today, 2 nights ago me and my fiancè were fooling around and I orgasmed although there was no penetration...I have been bleeding a lot heavier now than I had been (had pretty much stopped). Do ye think the orgasm would have triggered this heavier bleeding or could it be my period back even tho the bleeding hadn't stopped 100%. I was meant to have my 6 week check up today but doc office cancelled and it is on next Friday now instead :(

yes an orgasm causes your uterus to contract much like cramping during a period. when I had my babies I tried to orgasm as much as I could right after so the bleeding would stop sooner.



It could also be your period returning, I have heard of mothers who formula feed from birth getting their periods back at 6 weeks and some breastfeeding mothers as well.

I never did, but I didn't stop bleeding until 8 weeks. although now you mention it it did seem to be "on the way out" around 7 weeks and then got heavier for a few days.



now I'm wondering!

Jami, can you get your period without stopping bleeding 1st, I'm thinking its my period because its still quiet heavy 3 days later but it still has that gooey stringy texture to it too (tmi I apologise)
