How is it I go from never having a period to having one every month after I give birth?

First time I got pregnant we did it on our own (w/o fertility drugs) and 2nd time round was taking a really long time to concieve so went to the doc and found out I have PCOS. Took Clomid for 2 months then got pregnant on the 3rd month. A month or so after giving birth last april I have been having my period every month. Who would have known that giving birth would help my cycle get back on track. Were about to start trying for baby #3 here real soon and it looks like as long as Im having af every month I wont need clomid this time. Has anyone else ever experianced this?

  • Yep. I've never had PCOS, but I had really irregular cycles (anywhere from 24-79 days) pre-pregnancy. Same after my first was born. But since my second was born 21 months ago, I've had a period just about every month (with the exception of a few missed ones at the beginning). Very weird for me.

  • My step mom has PCOS. She had maybe 2 or 3 periods a year IF THAT before having her daughter. Now she's having one every single month like clock work.

    The hormones just change after you give birth.
