Can someone help?

I had my daughter 9 months ago and the nurses told me before I left the hospital that it would be awhile before my periods were normal again. 9 months later and ive only had one period since I had her. I am 18 years old. and shes my first. Is this normal?? Ive taken like a million pregnancy tests and they all come back negative. I went to an appointment with the gyno. (also who delivered my daughter) and he said that I just need to give it awhile. How long is that? and whats going on? my mom said that when she had her first (me) she bled for 6 weeks and she had her fist period when I was 3 monrths. whats going on? cuz im seriously freaking out!

  • Did you or are you breastfeeding? That usually delays the return of your cycle.

  • are you breastfeeding? that could affect it... if not, just enjoy it. It will take your body awhile to get back into the swing of things

  • Be sure to talk to the doctor about your concerns when you go next week. It's probably fine - you are young and most "female" health problems effect "old people" like me.

  • Your body is going through a lot of changes! After my first baby I didn't have a period but I got pg 3 months after I had her! So I have only had a few periods in 2 and a half yrs. I think its a blessing! Not even bc regulated me! It freaked me out so I stopped taking it and I am going in to get an IUD. Mirana! Just to make sure I am safe!
