period after pregnancy

how soon after you delivered did you start your period? I had my second child on August 25th which is roughly around 7 weeks ago and I still haven't started. Should I have? I'm not breastfeeding anymore...I stopped at 4 weeks post partum. I'm just nervous b/c my hubby and I had unprotected sex once and he ejaculated in me...eek..

  • It was about 3 months after my daughter that I started mine. I know this isnt probably what you want to hear but there is a possibility that you could be pregnant again. Have you gone to your 6 week check-up yet?

  • i went and he had to leave so I ended up having to reschedule. I'm unsure because it was so hard for me to get preggo with this baby. I had 4 miscarriages before him. We tried for 2 years and I had to be on progesterone to get and stay pregnant.

  • I am very sorry to hear about your four miscarriages. One is one too many. My period started about 4 months after delivery, but I was breastfeeding. It depends on the woman as to when she starts or whether or not she is breastfeeding. I heard that some women start the periods within weeks, others within months, and yet others with in a year or more. As far as I know there isn't a hard deadline and every pregnancy is different. You could get pregnant right away, too. Good luck!

  • I got mine back at 6 weeks pp. And that was with ebf, so everyone is different. How long ago did you have unprotected sex?

  • it was at 4 weeks postpartum so about 3 weeks ago and it was only once. We've used protection since then.
