Need advice
I had a baby in September 2005. I get my period on the 10th/ 11th every month, but it is heavier than usual (before i had the baby) and it is brownish in colour the first day and than normal afterwards. Do i need to see a Doctor? What can it be?

It may be that you are off contraception and that you were using contraception before the pregnancy. This can make period heavier.
