Breastfeeding 5 month old. No periods yet. Had a light pink tinge. What could it be?

my daughter is 5 months old tomorrow and i m exclusively breastfeeding . i havent had a period yet, but earlier today noticed a slight pink tinge (only the once) when i wiped. her feeding hasnt decreased, in fact its increased slightly in the last few days (i m guessing a growth spurt) and she still wakes up once-twice a night for a feed. i was just wondering what the tinge could be? thanks

hello!if you are exclusively breastfeeding your child and that too quiet frequently than there is nothing to worry about slight tinge of blood. but in case if it repeats than it could suggest that amenorrhoea period is over& your cycles might get established from next cycle
