 aingeal - Tue Jan 17, 2006 10:39 pm

I am 11 weeks post birth, i have had my second period and in the week following have spotted twice, enough to scramble for a pad.

User avatar Hi Aingeal,

Congratulations on your new family addition. One quick question becuase it could have a bearing on the answer to your question. Are you currently breastfeeding? If not did your breastfeed and if so how long ago did you stop?
