Default Birth control after pregnancy

I have a question that I can't seem to find the answer to anywhere! I
have read that if you are not breastfeeding you can start taking the
pill 3 weeks postpartum. But no where can I find anything about what
to do if you are still bleeding (lochia). Can you start the pill
while you are still bleeding? And if you do will the pill stop the
bleeding like it does for your period? And if it does stop the
bleeding can that be bad for your body? (infection...etc?). Can
anyone help?

I think this is a question that your doctor could answer very easily. I'm
sure other's on the ng will have answers for you too.

All 3 times I went on the pill at 4 weeks post-partum.

I took the pill when I was still bleeding and I think the pill made it stop.

I never had any problems.

Thank you for your input. For some reason I couldn't find anyone who
had experienced this, or even anyone who had started taking the pill
while still bleeding. I'm sure it's more common than it appears
though.

No prob. I know it can be frustrating to not find info on something that's
probably common
