I thought I had my first period 2 weeks ago...it was not very heavy, but not light...medium flow I guess.

Kind of a side note: when is it ok to start using tampons again? I meant to ask my dr. last time I was in but I forgot. Thought you girls might know...

Trai, hope you're more back to normal today. Doesn't sound any fun.

I was told not to use tampons until I'm cleared at six weeks

I think that as long as you're not bleeding through more than a pad an hour, it's still considered normal. After my oldest DS was born, I ended up in the hospital because of heavy bleeding...like 2 thick pads per hour.

No tampons until you've been cleared at 6 weeks. :)
My integrity hasbeen questioned and I've been accused of lying. I shouldn't have shared so much of myself online, I just got too excited. This is goodbye.
