    yay for a quick delivery lol. You should make an appointment with your OB. While it may take a while for you to regulate it almost makes me wonder if some of the contents of pregnancy could have been left? Have they checked you for that. Birth control can potentially regulate you depending on what you get. One thing to note though if you are breastfeeding there are many kinds that you cannot use. I am not sure if you are or not though. Something to discuss with your doctor. Congrats on your upcoming wedding too! I am exclusively pumping and did a lot of research to decide the type of birth control. I went with the Implanon (if you have good insurance then its a good choice, same with the IUD because they aren't supposed to effect milk supply at all). Lots of choices. If i wasn't pumping for little man I probably would have went back to YAZ because I was regular with that. I hadn't had af after 3 weeks of the pp bleeding up until little man was about 12 weeks old.I bled for 10 days and then it finally stopped (he just turned 16 weeks on sat). One thing about implanon and iud and depo (any of the long term ones minus the pills) you don't necessarily know when you are going to start.Sometimes you don't have af at all and other times you have it regularly. Anyways I hope that all is well with your LO. Congrats again on him and your upcoming marriage.
