    Hello,

    Are you still experiencing this spotting? This article about the first 6 weeks postpartum says that bleeding and vaginal discharge can come and go for 2 months after giving birth. Since your bleeding has lasted slightly longer than two months, it may be a good idea to call your doctor to make sure that this is not something that needs medical attention. Please let us know how you are doing!

    Best wishes,
    Atti
