should I worry or no?

I have an 8 week old son. I stoppd bleeding about 1 1/2 weeks after he was born. I got my period at 3 weeks post pardom. At almost 6 weeks postpardum I got my tubes tied. I have yet to have a period again. I am breastfeeding. I did get horrible cramps ( I have endometriosis) and maybe 2 tampons worth of 'cycle'. I have had sex since my surgury. Should I be worried or no? Could I not be getting my period do to a.)breastfeeding, despite the fact that I got it the previous month? b.) getting my tubes tied c.) my endometriosis ???? Very confused!

  • It could be the Endo or the tubal. My sister has Endo and I know it screws with her cycles sometimes. Definately consult the doctor, but I'm sure you're fine. My cycles haven't been the same since my tubal. They come too often and are lighter than normal and such. But everyone's body is different and your's may be skipping cycles or something. Good luck!

  • I got my REALLY HEAVY period at five weeks postpartum. My doc suggested birth control to regulate it. He said the post baby bleeding was enough. I didn't need period bleeding on top of that.
    I would ask your doc about birth control. After babies periods can be irregular for a good long time. Mine hasn't been regular since my first baby.

  • I would call the doctor's office if I were you just to be sure all is okay but it sounds like the Mermigen knows what she is saying. Good luck Momms!

  • I personally think it's natural, but call your doctor since they know more about you.
