Menstrual Cycle

How long after giving birth, did it take for your menstrual cycle to start again? And how heavy was your bleeding? Mine started after two months and I keep having to change my pads after every 1.5 hours for the past three days. Thank you.

  • I got it after 2 months. Period was really heavy; I was like you, I had to change every hour and it lasted for 2 weeks then I skipped a month and now it's back on! But this time it's a normal flow.

  • Mine never stopped after having each of my four children (vaginally). so i can't say that you're abnormal in any way.

  • 6 weeks and I was bleeding through a super tampon and heavy pad in an hour. Over the last 6 months it is getting better, but not back to normal.
