Hi,

Not really sure where to post this question, but figured someone might have the answer.

I had my first period postpartum when my baby was 10 weeks old...
Does it take time for ones period to get into a regular cycle again???
Before I got pregnant, I was quiet regular 28-32 days, but it has now been way over that (assuming i'm not pregnant again)..

Thanks

I have heard it takes time especially if you are breastfeeding to get back to a regular cycle.

I am 3 months after giving birth and still haven't had one, took a test that was negative last week though.

I think everyone is different in regards to what pregnancy and breastfeeding does to their body. I was totally irregular before getting pregnant, and since I had my daughter I have been like clockwork. If you think there is a chance you could be pregnant, take a test. Otherwise (or if it's negative), I would say it is probably just a normal part of the crazy hormones from having a baby.
