Birth Control after having a baby....

Okay so I'm on the depo-shot and I had a baby back in August. I don't know if its the shot or what but I have not had a "Normal" period since Thanksgiving and I was just wondering if any one else that has gone on birth control after having a baby have had their regular monthly FLOW.....

  • I didn't go on BC after DD was born, I had an IUD placed, but I haven't had a period either, if you're breastfeeding that will cause it to be light or to stop sometimes, either way, after a baby your period is usually kind of sluggish in getting back to normal, I would say if it worries you, talk to your doctor.

  • it doesnt really worry me because I have talked to a doctor and they say its normal. I am still breastfeeding and my baby is now 7 months old.

  • Periods can be delayed. I got on the patch afterwards, and that regulated my periods, but they are lighter.
