  • You may not be regular for a while, its normal. Also fluctuations in your weight can effect your cycle. Have you lost a lot of weight?

  • if u breastfeed that will screw it up, stress, birth control.

  • So you're 3 mos PP? That in itself could be a reason. It can take a while before your body gets back into the normal swing of things. I'd probably double check with a doctor, maybe get a blood pregnancy test just to be sure though.

  • well just because he doesnt FINISH inside doesnt mean he's not leaving any of his lil guys you could be pregnant and your too early to take a pg test

  • Not "finishing" inside doesn't have anything to do with anything!! ROFLMAO!!! You really think that will prevent pregnancy? lol Wow. I thought everyone knew withdrawal isn't a form of birthcontrol.

    Wait it out and keep testing.

  • My son is almost 10 months old... i know that dtd without finishing inside is not a form of birth control... gheeze I love how people just assume things on here... it took me 3 months after he was born to get my period back, then I had it twice after that then bled for a month and havent had it since september .... have taken many tests and there all neg... I mean it wouldnt be a problem if I am prego, cuz we are married and want more kids...we are actually plannin on starting to try again in march... I just want to know why my period is not coming.... it will be easier to ttc if i know when to expect my period....
