  • Your cycle can take time to adjust to back to normal. Mine didn't, but it's not out of the ordinary for it to take some time.

  • I didn't get any sign of AF until my son was 10 months old. It was a couple days of very light spotting. This month it was more normal, but not my regular cycle, days wise. With my other two it took a couple of months to adjust and get back on schedule. You need to use birth control at all times until you are more regular and then you can go from there!
