9 weeks after giving birth and still no period??


Has anyone else still not had a visit from the yet??

Its been 9 weeks since I had Bethany and still no signs of AF. I don't even feel like she's on her way yet. Me and DH have been sexually active but we've used condoms so I can safely say that I'm not pregnant.

I had my 8 week check last Friday and Dr said that if I still haven't had AF in a couple of weeks to go back just to make sure nothing is wrong. I'm hoping that by posting this it will bring the out as it's Sods law that as soon as you mention it to people she ends up turning up lol!!

Thanks

Claire

Hiya Claire... just a thought.... are you sure you didnt have it after you lochia (bleeding after birth)?

I bleed (lochia) for about 2 weeks then a few days of brown crap then heavy bleeding again so saw doc n HV and they said it was my period/AF.

Hi Donna, no, I had bleeding for about 3 weeks after giving birth but nothing since. I bottle fed too so it can't be down to BF'ing.

I guess I'll just sit tight and hope she turns up

It can take a while even when you're not breastfeeding.

I was thinking exactly the same as you so after 10 weeks of waiting I decided to go back on the pill - it made me feel awful so I stopped it after a few days and sure enough arrived!

When spoke to the doc, she said that the reason I felt so awful was because my hormones weren't back to normal which could be why I hadn't had a period since having Grace. I wouldn't worry people are all totally different and I was told it can take upto 6 months - BF or not xx xx

I spoke to my doctor today about this and he said it can take up to 3 / 4 months to come back, it's delayed though if you breastfeed
