Hi,

I had something similar with my first birth. You can almost bet that it's your hormones fluctuating, especially if you're breastfeeding. Every woman is different though, so if you're still worried and having the same heavy bleeding on and off, it's probably best to contact your doctor. You might need a D&C if it persists. I needed one in the end, just to clear out a little bit of debris left over from the birth.

All the best and congratulations!
