is this normal?

Before I had my baby (16 months ago) my periods were really heavy and lasted atleast 5 days with horrible cramps...ever since I had her I hardly have a period anymore and if i do its late or hardly any bleeding, is this normal? I am on the pill and take it on time everyday. I don't get it

  • Birth control pills can make your periods lighter and you may not get one every month.

  • The pill AND having had a baby changes your body and reproductive systom. Sounds normal to me, but I'm not a Dr. ASK yours if this is normal.

  • Ditto what vbruno said. I would check with your doctor if you're really worried. I had the same thing happen to me, though. I started to type up my experience, but decided against it because it was a little long and pointless. It sounds normal from what I've heard other women tell me, though.
