irregular periods after birth

I had my son almost 7 months ago, and my periods were normal for a while, but I havent gotten my period since December 13th. I took 2 pregnancy tests and they came out negative, so I know I'm not pregnant. Has this happened to anyone else? And should I just wait it out or should I make an appointment to see a doctor?

 Mine went back to normal BUT my mom and a friend of mine both said that there's never got back to normal after they had kids...and my mom hasn't had kids in over 19 years and my friend in over 6

just because your pregnancy tests were negative doesn't mean that you aren't pregnant. false negatives are much more common than flase positives.

also, are you breastfeeding? irregular periods after birth are common, especially if you're nursing.

I had my daughter in June, had my period 3 times in September and haven't had it since. But I am also breastfeeding.

Girl I feel you , this is my first baby and I breastfee and pump. Kendall is six months and gets solids now but I have had one period and it was on 12/27 and none since. I have taken 3 tests and they are all neggers. I don't even know when I'm ovulating or anything. So I am in the boat with you. I just want some kind of schedule or something.

i bf my first for a year. i got my period when she was 6 weeks old and then not again till she was 13 months old! with my second (she's 3 months old) i've been bf since she was born and i've been lightly spotting since she was born but no actual "period" yet....everyone's different though. i've always had crazy cycles and had to take fertility drugs to get pregnant so.........
