  • It can be normal. Every woman is different, and you've just had 9 months of weird hormones. Give your body some time to recover. Your periods will return when they're ready. In the meantime, be sure to use protection!

  • I Agree with both above posters. :)
    And definately make sure you use protection...just because the period isn't there doesn't mean the egg isn't waiting.
