period after newborn bond
I' ve had the mirena for 2,5yrs. My son is 3 yrs.
My SIL (brother' s finace) just had baby girl on thurs.
(I have always been close with my brother.)
I held her for the first time yesterday and fell in love with her. (As if she were my baby) A few hours afterwards i started bleeding heavily!! - which i have not experienced since before my mirena, i' ve only had slighty discharge, every 2 or more months.
Do you think the bleeding is due to a " motherly instinct"  i might be experiencing? Like when you bleed after you give birth? Or simply coincidence?

Most likely coincidence.
