Question...may be TMI

Okay I had my six week check up on Monday and today I have noticed some brown bloody mucus when I wipe. I am breastfeeding.

I am wondering if this my period coming back already or from the check up?

I did not get my period back in between my son and daughter and after my daughter it took 11 months.

My guess is that it's from the check-up. It probably stirred things up a little. But who really knows, a lot of mamas get AF back too soon after birth. Mine came back at 2 months both times. Just be safe and use BC!

I always spot a little after an exam. I actually expect it now.

I doubt it's AF coming back...I've had some random spotting here and there, still haven't gotten AF though and it's been 8 months!

I always spot after an exam though, or at least a little bit on the TP.

ITA definitely normal, but it's no telling with breastfeeding!

Probably just the exam. I also had a couple of weird times when I had something like that or maybe even a little bit of red once or twice on a tp then nothing. That happened a couple of months, then went away, then finally got my periods back in full when DD was 10 months and I was breastfeeding too.

Another vote for the exam. Nothing to worry about, unless of course you are DTD with no prevention and are not ready to be pregnant yet. (AF could come back at any time though, even while EBF, so you're probably already exercising caution in that field which means that I am just stating something you already know. )
