When will my period come back? adult content

I had my son 2 months ago and I bled after the birth for 2 weeks but nothing more after that, I thought it would have happened by now. I need to be on my period in order for the doctor to put my birth control in. My husband and I have had sex but I want to be on birth control to make sure I don't get pregnant again. This is driving me a little nuts.

  • After I had my son I bled for about 4 wks and then started my period when my son was about 6 wks old. Maybe you should ask your doctor?

  • are you breast feeding? I didn't get mine back for 6 months with my first, 19 months with my second, about 12 months with my third and 26 months with our fourth.

  • If you are breastfeeding it could take a while. Mine didn't come back with my first until she was 18 months. It took 8 months with my second and 6 with my third.

  • I also breastfed my son, and my period did not come back until I stopped breastfeeding - around 10 months. Are you getting an IUD? I have never heard of needing to have your period in order to get one put in.

  • I assume you are geting an IUD!? When I got mine my doctor said they suggest waiting till I start my period but I didnt have to, maybe talkl to your doctor and see if they will do it or give you something else until it comes...?
