It has been 8 months since I had my son. Ever since his birth I have been experiencing VERY light periods. I had very heavy periods before. Is something wrong with me?

  • Nope, our cycles can change greatly after kids. Just know how lucky you are and be HAPPY about it. I use to have bad cramps, but after having my first kid, they went away and it is very rare for me to have cramps now.

  • Having a baby changes everything. Same thing happened to me after one, but after another they were worse than ever. Whatever your normal was, it won't be, and it won't stay the same new normal forever - gotta love hormones!

  • Hormones change after pregnancy, and everything involved with them, including periods. My cycles used to be super irregular, anywhere from 24-79 days; ever since I had my second (who just turned 2), I've had a period every 27-31 days with very few exceptions.

    You're going to have a new "normal". Just get used to it. :)
