Hey, I'm 18 years old and I had my daughter 7 months ago. This month I had my first period since giving birth and it lasted as long as they did before getting period. Well, now a week later, I'm bleeding again as if I'm having a period again. Im not on a birth control and I am having sex, but I don't have any symptoms of pregnancy and have taken 3 tests and all negative. Help?

Hello kotarhea16,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community and reaching out to us for help.

Considering the fact that you delivered your baby seven months ago, and recently resumed your period this month, the onset of more vaginal bleeding one week later must be evaluated by your obstetrician.

Any upset in the normal balance of hormones which regulate the menstrual cycle can cause irregularities.
