Hi all,
After babies no 1 and 2, my periods went back to normal, but after no.3, they are much heavier, and last for longer. I am hoping that now I am no longer breastfeeding, I can go back on the pill and it will calm things down a bit. Good luck.

I was the same after the birth of my daughter. Now 13 months later my periods are back to what they were before the baby.
and not to mention they go for longer!

Hi,

My baby was born in October, and I've just recently had my first period. Boy!!!! This was a lot heavier, longer and more painful. Usually they would only last two - three days and be really light. But this time, it stayed for seven - eight days, and was pretty heavy right to the end. I'm hoping that they will return to normal soon!!!!

Hi All,
Just to add to the topic is anyone else finding that tampons don't do what they used to, or is it just me?

Hello,
After the birth of my son my period went back to normal, but after my daughter I have been bleeding really heavy! Lots of cramping and very irregular bleeding ( sometimes for up to 5 weeks). I have had to go on the pill to regulate it but it doesn't seem to be helping much.
