  • My one friend it took her 6 months of what you had until her health got back to what was"normal" she was told by the doctor this is normal period responce for many woman and can take awhile to get back on track due to stress,hormones,if you BF and so on.
    It's always good to be checked out incase though any underline reproductive issues surfaced which may be causing this delay or irregularity, so it's took care of right away.
    Best of luck:)

  • You're first period is usually the worst. As far as bleeding and cramping.
    I've had about 3 periods since my son was born 6 mos ago, and mine are completely normal now.
