  • Are you breastfeeding? If you are sometimes you won't get a period until you stop breastfeeding. If not, then it can still take a little bit for your periods to become regular again. You have been to your OBGYN already, so if heisn't concerned then I am sure it is nothing. Was it a blood test? If so then chances are you aren't pregnant. Now if it was a regular pee test, then there is a chance you could be pregnant. I know I didn't find out I was pregnant until I was 6 weeks along. I kept taking tests up until then and I kept getting negatives. Good luck. Hth.

  • You could be pregant but then again thats normal not to have your period for 2 months after giving birth and if your breastfeeding it can be even longer! Ive heard of woman not having a period the entire time they were breastfeeding. And if you arent breastfeeding why dont you get a better method of birth control then using condoms?

  • I was always told you are not supposed to get your period within the first three months after giving birth. If you do, then you need to be checked. Since it hasn't been three months yet you should be fine. Mabe your OB can give you low dose birth control pills or something if you're worried.
