Hi everyone I am experiencing the same thing and I'm freaking out so can someone please help me. Just recently had a newborn well she is now 3months. During postpartum I bleed more then 40days. Even when I had my pep smear test I told the doc how do I know when it's my period he said I would expirience cramps. But I neve felt no cramps so I really don't know what date I got my period on. I should of kept tracked atleast of the last day i bled but I didn't ;( anyways we have had unprotected sex twice but he always pulls out but I know there is always a small chance of pre cm & this is why I'm freaking out. The month is about to be over and TODAY barely I got what I think is maybe my period but it's very light! When I woke up my panties were wet when I went to the restroom they were just wet with a little bit of blood like brownish but very light and little. However I peed and when I wiped I had blood light as well so I put a pad on hr later to get in the shower I took the pad of and I had nothing no blood stains or nothing but when I wipe myself there is blood. Can I be pregnant can this be implantation blood. I do have cramps whatsoever and if so when should I take a pregnancy test.

Thanks for your post and congratulations on your baby!

The pull-out method is not reliable at all in your situation. You are still in the post-partum period (a time when many women are very fertile) with an irregular cycle so you need to use proper protection at all times.

From what you say, it doesn't sound like you're pregnant but we can't say for sure of course. Cramps are not mandatory with periods! A test would be accurate 14-21 days after sex so you can try then. This new bleeding may be a sign your next period is on it's way but a test will let you know for sure.
