Breastfeeding and bleeding

Hi,

I recently had my baby about 3 months ago and am breastfeeding.
The last 2 days I have had very light pink bleeding. So light that it only shows when I wipe (sorry if TMI).
My husband and I have had sex but have used a condum.
Is this normal or should I be concerned?

I had my son 4 months ago and just started getting my period again. I noticed the same thing, some light bleeding just while wiping at first then noticed some spotting on a pad. I had PMS symptoms before my period started up again, but didn't realize it was PMS, just thought I was irritable from lack of sleep. I was surprised because I read over and over that most women don't get their periods while breast feeding. But, i guess I'm one of the "few women" that it happens to. Maybe it's the same for you? Unless you are noticing after you and your husband have sex.
