Did your period change after you had kids?

I use to be very regular and on the dot. Since my son was born my periods have been very screwy. I've had maybe 5 periods this past year. A couple lasting over a week and my last one last a day. (No I am not pregnant) I was just curious on how many other women's periods changed after kids.

  • Yes, but then again age and hormones will do that. It's to be expected.

  • The only change I've noticed is my PMS being worse. I'm super irritable.

  • Mine went from 7 days long t 5 days and I am super bitchy and my first 2 days are really painful with camping, pressure, and back pain. So it doesn't last as long but it hurts like hell!!
