Implantation bleeding or post-partum AF

I'm 16 months post partum and haven't gotten my flow back...I'm bleeding a small amount today, but I expected first PP flow to be heavy. I think I may have ovulated last week...could it be implantation bleeding? Was your first postpartum flow heavy?

Re: Implantation bleeding or post-partum AF

My first pp af was normal. Usually, implantation is very very light. Mostly a pinkish or brownish tint resembling old blood. I know everyone is different, but if the bleeding is bright red, it is probably af trying to get back to normal.

Re: Implantation bleeding or post-partum AF

It's pink, not at all like a normal period. In fact this is how I was with my dd. I remember b/c I thought I was having a miscarriage and I freaked, but that wasn't actually implantation bleeding, but when I would have had my regular period. I think my gut it telling me it's AF and I shoulnd't get too excited.

My first postpartum flow was light and kinda wacky....but the next month it was regular but much more flow than I was used to b/c I had been on b/c before ttc.

Re: Implantation bleeding or post-partum AF

when i had implantation bleeding (only once,w/ my last pgcy) it was a few streaks of pink on the tp. It wasnt enough to come out on a pad or anything like that, and not in the toilet either.

Re: Implantation bleeding or post-partum AF

I'm not getting my hopes up...it's not enough to make it to the pad really, but still probably just AF. Well, at least now that it's back we can actually try instead of winging it
