Late irregular periods after having a baby.


Hey only me again.

I have just relised I am late on my period I am not sure how late but deffo over the 28 as I counted back to my parents coming over and deffo have not had one since they were over or while they were here and now I am freaking out a little lol.

I had a period about 6 weeks after birth and then one another 3 weeks later or so and was very heavy. Is it normal to b this irregular after birth or should I worry.

We have been DTD useing condoms as protection please tell me I have nothing to worry about and having late periods is perfectly normal. lol

Periods after a baby


Hello,

It is normal although a little worrying at first - I had my period about 8 weeks after birth in September and they are only starting to get regular now since then I have had cycles of:
47, 32, 37, 56, 33, 32 and 29. I have only started to try since afte the 56 cycle as well there didnt seem much point when my cycle was all out of tune and I wanted to wait the recommended six months after having a c-section.

I think it does settle back down - but as we all know if we stress about it coming it never does!

Hope that helps?

Shelley x

Are you breastfeeding? If so, I believe it's common for periods to be irregular after a baby, because of the change in hormones when breastfeeding.
