    after my pregnancy bleed I had a very heavy period about 4 weeks after, then another very slight bleed again about 4 weeks after that, then went nearly 3 months with nothing. I had a c section and couldnt breastfeed

    Not had one yet - breastfeeding. Then I'm planning on having the hormone coil fitted, so hopefully not for a long time yet :)

    Glad you asked this. :D

    I stopped bleeding 2 1/2 weeks after giving birth and I am dreading having a period again. I think I will probably panic.

    I had a period whilst breastfeeding at about 5 months after birth. I was pretty shocked and unprepared as I thought that periods stop whilst bf but luckily I was at home.
