    Hey ladies

    I'm fairly sure I'm having my first period, I stopped bleeding in week 2 and started again yesterday. Today the flow is super heavy TMI but I've just leaked so much it's gone through the pad and straight through my trousers :(

    Is this normal for a first period? I have no pain or discomfort, just feel very yukky, headachy and tired. Also I don't suppose you can use a tampon? I hate using pads :/

    Xx

    Hope it has eased up for you now???

    I was lucky with all my bleeding after baby (bled lightly for about 10 days then had a normal period as soon as I stopped expressing, nothing unusually heavy at all)

    If in any doubt speak to a HV or MW hun

    xxxxxxxx

    My 1st period was really heavy too, I used Tampons and a towel to stop leaks but I was 6 months post c-section.
