My baby just hit 1yr. Last month I finally had a period. I didn't miss it. But this month I'm expecting it, maybe even had pms, and no period yet. Did your period come back regular?
Oh I had
My tubes tied too. Does that cause any differences?

When YDD was 12 months, I got my period back for the first time. She'll be 14 months next week and we're still breastfeeding and haven't gotten my period back yet :/ It was due nearly 2 weeks ago. I've tested a couple times and it always says negative.

Its normal for it to skip a month or two and come back again.

ETA: We're still breastfeeding if that helps.

It's normal to bounce around a bit when it comes back.

I'm not thinking I'm pregnant or anything. My tubes are tied. But it seems my hormones are all over the place. I'm still breastfeeding. Just curious what's going on with me and these possible pms symptoms.

After my son I never got a period and got pregnant with our ydd when he was 9mo. But I can't get pregnant now so that's not a concern. My mood, and eating habits are though. : (

I think my hormones are all over though. My tubes are tied. But I guess I just want some kid of rhythm. Like I know since I'm moody this week I'll start my period and be normal in another week. That doesn't seem to be the case though. I'm ok with less periods. But I want my hormones to match. Lol

Try upping your protein intake & b vitamin supp. Could help with symptoms. But then again it is a full moon tonight so that could be it...

After my 4th baby I had my tubes tied. Nursed from day one,and didn't get my period till he was almost 2. (He turned 2 in december)and recently maybe since beginning of yr they r getting normal again. I also have endometriosis,which pregnancy "helps"and I thought after having him it was "cured"! But the past few months its come back full force. Worse then when I was first told I had it. (Its been basicly since I first got my period at 11,I just didn't know of course at that age it wasn't normal to have a fever,throw up,and be literally on the couch with a heating pad for days,and I guess my mom didn't know either!)
