Is it normal to have an irregular period after labor and IUD insertion?

I had a normal period about a month and a half after labor. I got an IUD while on my period. Now it's been 6 weeks and I haven't gotten another period. I'm worried that I might be pregnant. I'm breastfeeding, and I know that this may be making my hormones a little kooky and therefore affecting my cycle.

  • Yes very normal. Especially with the hormonal (mirena) IUD.
