Starting your cylce after having a baby

  • Yes, that's normal. Are you using condoms if you're sexually active? You can still get pregnant if you're nursing.

  • Completely normal. Breastfeeding affects hormones about as much as pregnancy does. Just about everything period-related is normal while nursing, no matter how abnormal it seems.
