What is a normal period schedule after giving birth?

I started my period after giving birth 3 months ago, and I'm still on my period. It's been a little over 3 months, and I only breastfed for half a month. Is this normal?

If you have been having a continual period for three months this is not normal and you should speak to a doctor. It is normal for your usual period length and cycle to change following birth, periods could become heavier or lighter, and the return of periods is often delayed.

Your cycle is going to be very irregular after giving birth. Sometimes odd schedules can last for a good six months, sometimes even longer. It's important to keep your doctor advised of your cycle, and immediately report if you are having extreme depression combined with irregular cycles.

You should check in with your OBGYN. While it very possibly is nothing bad, lengthy postpartum bleeding can indicate a number of issues that won't resolve on their own. A slow healing internal injury can adversely affect your future fertility; scar tissue in that area is generally not a good thing, and a quick postpartum checkup can answer any questions.

There is not a normal schedule people vary depending on the type of birth and hormone levels. There are many different reasons why you could bleed longer then a normal period after birth. It may be very uncomfortable but it also may just be as simple as stress in your life.
