Irregular menstrual cycles post pardum

Hi Ladies! I delivered my little one on July 10, 2008 and got my first period the 13th of October. Did any of you have irregular periods for awhile after delivery. I am not breastfeeding. Please give me some input. Thanks!

  • yes. my dd is 5 months and im still not on a completely regular cycle which i was pre-pregnancy. it will go back to normal. if you are breast feeding or are not completely dried up it will take longer to get back to normal

  • They can be irregular for quite awhile, unfortunately.

  • I had mine on May 5th 08, had a period June 23, and haven't had one since. I am on DEPO though.

  • My son in thirteen months old, I breastfed till he was five months and I've only had two normal cycles since I delivered... It could be quite a while for you...

  • Thanks Ladies! I was starting to get really worried because I hadn't started yet. My boys were 12 months apart so I only had on cycle between them.
