  • I bled forever after I had my son (it seemed like) and then was regular afterwards but everyone is different. Have you asked your dr?

  • Are you breast feeding? I didn't have a period with any of mine until about 1 or 2 months after I stopped breast feeding.

  • Um, when I didn't get my period after the bleeding from the delivery, I went to the doctor, and guess what? I was pregnant again! They are 9.5 months this a possibility? Good Luck:)

  • I didnt stop bleeding for a long 2 months..then it stopped then it started again...i think the normal amount of time is around 4-5 weeks but everyone is different...ask your doctor about it... Is there a chance your pregnant again?? i got pregnant 4 months after i had my first...

  • It depends if you are breastfeeding as that can delay your menses. I BF all my kids and still got my period back at 6 weeks for each child, though my midwife never got her period during the first year of any of her children.

  • for one child i didn't have one for 14 months, another child became twins (well, kinda trips) really fast...if you feel "funny" at all, get checked for pg; otherwise, if you're really worried, have the hormone levels checked. good luck
