I just got my period back today, at least I think so. My locchia had just stopped when they did a pap test at the 7 week check up, I've been spotting ever since, and now the flow has gotten heavier. I'm hoping it's just my period starting, but 8 weeks seems kind of early to me for that. Has anyone else gotten their period back yet?

My son was born on November 6---eight weeks early.....I bled for abt four and a half weeks after his birth and got my period abt five and a half weeks after his birth.  Never too early I guess.

My son was born 15/11 via an emergency c-section. I am breastfeeding and topping up with bottle feeds sometimes. I still have not got my period, but i am also on the mini-pill and i think that u dont get it sometimes when u are on it. I bled for about 3-4wks after he was born tho.

Really weird but I wrote about my period and being worried that I haven't gotten it yet this morning and it came tonight. Guess writing on this wall does have karma. It has been just about 12 weeks after a C section.

I had my son on Nov. 17, 2008 and still have not gotten my period. I do not breast feed. Anyone else not get their period yet and not breastfeeding ? Should I be worried ?

I bled heavily until my son was 10 weeks old and just stopped bleeding last week.  I don't know what was going on there but I had an ultrasound and some tests done (testing my iron, etc) because of how heavy it was.  I went to the doctor, who said the test results were all totally normal and then stopped bleeding a few days after that.  I do not want to see blood again for a very long time.  My Dr. said it's possible that it had something to do with the fact that my normal periods are really heavy and last a long time.

Hi!! I hemmoraged in delivery, i lost 4 liters of blood and came really close to dying so my mid wife said it might take awhile to get a period, but it came 8 weeks after i gave birth. Thank God i was kind of scared.

You'd think that after being through pregnancy, labour, delivery, then doing sleepless nights and breastfeeding that someone up there could give us a bit of a break on this!!



I'm not really crampy but boy, am I moody!  Someone told me that it takes two years for your hormones to return to normal after having a baby...*sigh*

Be thankful; I never got a period after my 1st pregnancy.  Now I have children 11 months apart.  It's hard!

I too bled for 6 weeks after giving birth (via c-section), then my period started 2 weeks after that! Totally sucks, I agree. I was hoping that I would get a little more time away from it. By the way, I am exclusively breast feeding!!!

I had my period back right after my 6 week check up. I guess you could call it that. It was very light and short. I'm just finishing my first pack of birth control and starting again...so no I'd say it not too early.

I am breastfeeding.  I haven't had any cramps but I didn't always get them before I was pregnant, yesterday I felt a little weepy.  However, it's been fairly light so far.

HI ladies.. are you breastfeeding?



I didnt get my period back untill I stopped breast feeding my first and after I did find my flow was ALOT heavier then before and i got cramps which i never has before..But i have yet to get my period yet after birth. but might make a difference if you are breast feeding or not? but alot of women go right back to cycle so you never know.

I got mine back about 6-7 weeks after my first baby. I am starting to get it again and they have been awful. Heavy bleeding, headaches and bad cramping:(

hi there. i stopped and started bleeding for about six or seven weeks after birth, then there was about three weeks and i got a real period. i could tell it was a period because i got cramps as well. i was pretty cranky about it. i hate periods and thought id get a bigger break than that! :)
