Anyone know about this or have it happen to them?

I had my son on Nov. 3rd, 2008. I stopped bleeding the week I came home. I breastfed for 5 weeks. I had a period when he was 6 weeks old that lasted for 12 or so days. Now here is the thing. He is 11 weeks old now and I still haven't had a period since then. I took a test last Friday, Negative. Could I not be pregnant and just not have a period? Or too early to test?

Thanks for the help ladies.

  • your body is probably still messed up. i had my daughter in july, i bled for 6 weeks, it stopped for a week then came back for a few days, then i didnt get it for a couple months, then i had it normal for one month, the next month it lasted 12 days, and this month i havent gotten it yet. it takes a whil for your body to get regulated again. i wouldnt worry

  • Your period may not be regular for several more months, your hormones are going to be whacko for quite some time after having a baby!

  • You may not have a period for a while. They tend to be a little messed up after delivery, and breastfeeding doesn't help things that way either. I didn't have a period for 9 months after my first son was born. It was heaven!
