    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    concerned period
    keisha3 posted:
    I had a baby 6 1/2 months ago and i got my period 2 months after that. Everything was normal for about a month then my periods changed. Now i go anywhere from 2 1/2 to 3 weeks. Starts out light then goes to really heavy by the end of it. I have an appt. with my doc in a couple of weeks but i'm scared. Can i get a little insight into what might be or could be causing this just to kind of calm my nerves?
