How long for your AF to regulate once it returned?
I got my first AF almost 5 weeks ago. It was waaay heavier than I have had before! I have not had AF since 2009 as I have been either EBF or pregnant since then! My cycles always used to be pretty regular and I could predict within a few days when I would come on, but there is no sign of another AF (and I am defo not pg).
I am not at all sure that I ovulated since my last AF either. I have been using OPKs to see if I can figure out my cycle, but not used them religiously, I also didn't have EWCM which I always have usually.
So my question is, once your AF returns, is it normal for it to be irregular, and would you have one and then not OV again for a while? How long did it take for them to get regular again?
It's totally normal for them to be irregular. I think I had 5 periods before getting pregnant again, and they varied in length from 27 to 35 days, but my luteal phase varied from 4 days to 12. I was nursing reasonably consistently throughout that time. I've heard it's common to skip a period altogether if you start nursing more for whatever reason.
Mine started around 6 months after delivery. The first was extremely heavy and maybe the one after that but they seemed to go into a pattern straight away, and now 5 months on they are 28 days apart. So I'd say from my 2nd af they went into a pattern.
I got my first AF almost 7 weeks ago. I normally have a 35 day cycle, but now I'm 12 days late and still no AF. I keep getting period/ovulation pains but then nothing happens. I have done about 10 hpt and all bfn
Mine were really irregular. I got AF back when LO was 11 months, and after that my cycles varied from 2 to 5 weeks long. My LP was the weirdest though - it was 4-8 days long until the month I conceived where it was 9-10 days.
