  • Your body had a baby 9 months ago and it takes a while for bodys to get back to the swing of things. That is including your periiod. I went with having my period on time for 5 months then i went a year without one and there was no way that I was preggo It's just a womens body getting back in the swing of things i would still take a preggo test just in case and call your doctors office and speak with her/him then enjoy not having a period it's normal but you want to cover all things before you sit back and have your mind at ease.

  • I had my son 3 years ago and my period was normal for a very long time. But a few moths ago I had the same problem as you which worried me at the time. But over time it went back to normal. I think it may have been stress related.
