  • For many women, yes. My midwives said it is normal for your period to be irregular for up to 12 months after it comes back after childbirth.

  • Oh yea. It could take up to a year to be regular... and it still could be different from before you had your baby

  • Ok because I had my first period around the 25th of Juky and still haven't had another and my boy is 6 months now! My hubby and I tried the film strips but I don't think I waited the full 15 minutes, and I'm hoping that I'm not preggos again! Do any of you know about the film strips and how effective they are? It's been 5 weeks after my first p. should I wait it out some more or take the test? Thanks!
