Curious, my son is 5 months old, 6 months in about 2 weeks, and I "think" I've had a period ? After the bleeding from birth stopped I had what I thought was a period a little while later, and I also got the nexplanon. I havnt bled since, I was expecting to around 3 months after the implant, but I'm still breatfeeding and I know that can delay the return of it. With the two of those things is it possible I had one and it just stopped, or could it have just been more after bleeding, it was weeks after I thought it had stopped.

That's actually what I'm kind of afraid of, even though we have been pretty "safe", I'm done with babies. One is all I wanted, or I think I could handle.

I had one period last month. My son is almost 11 months. i have had none since. I took a test and it was negative. My dr said my periods will be irregular while nursing.

My daughter is 5.5 months old and I found out recently that I am about 12 weeks pregnant. I was not aware that could happen because I also did not get a period! Breastfeeding does make periods irregular from what I have heard.

You caught the first egg. If you hadn't gotten pregnant, you were 2 weeks from your first period. It happens. The stars were aligned just so, and I guess it's meant to be!
