DANGER - TMI alert. You have been warned!
I was wondering if anyone could help me with charting. Before I had DD, it was really easy - AF started on one definite day that I could put on the chart. Day before - no bleeding, next day - bleeding.
Since having DD, I get AF really gradually. Between when I first notice blood whilst checking my cervix and getting to a stage where I need sanitary protection will be about 5-7 days. After that, we proceed as normal for the rest of the cycle.
Does this just happen to everyone after giving birth (I didn’t get AF back at all until she was 9 months old, have now had 3 cycles like this) and then goes away again, or is this the new ‘normal’ for me and it will remain that way?
How do I mark this on my chart?
Any help appreciated and sorry for grossing everyone out but the only NFP lady in my area is someone I work with so I would prefer not to have to ask her!
