I've been breastfeeding for 9 months now (yay!), about two months ago I began to get my period back. At first I was concerned but I was told this is normal because I had begun to give my baby solid foods once or twice a day and he also began sleeping all night. In the past 3 weeks though my period has been sticking around. Most days it's not a heavy flow at all, actually very light, but it won't go away. I'm really beginning to get concerned about it. I am on oral birth control pills but I have been since my 6 week checkup after my baby was born. My pills are called Jolivette and it says they are a substitute for ortho micronor. I have no clue what's going on with my body. I would greatly appreciate any advice or information you can give thanks!View Thread
