should I call my OB?

My daughter was born December 2 and when I went for my 6 week check-up my doctor gave me a prescription for birth control pills, so I started taking them when I was supposed to... but I kept forgetting to take them, like I knew I would, so I decided to stop. I haven't had a period since.... does anyone know how long it takes for your body to "re-set" after baby? Or is anyone in the same boat as me? I took a pregnancy test about 2 months ago, and it was negative...soooo I don't know whats going on.

I wasn't able to breastfeed, and that's why I'm wondering why it hasn't come yet

I've heard it can take YEARS for your internal organs to get back to where they oughta be after having been pushed around by your uterus. But as so far as getting pregnant- that can happen immediately after giving birth.

I would talk to you're OB. I'm going to talk to mine about the same thing. I'm on the shot and had a period a couple weeks ago and now have spotted off and on (no rhyme or reason) I know that's normal but i also have some other symptoms of pregnancy that I have had with my two pregnancies. but I'm going to wait until I see them in a couple weeks anyway.

Are you breastfeeding? I got on the minipill at my 6 week check up and was on that till I got on regular pills when my son was about 5 months. After a week of being on the regular pills, I got my period. I had it for 2 weeks and then it stopped abruptly. I got off the pill because it was affecting my milk supply too much. This was probably a week ago now and now I seem to be spotting every now and then. I don't know what's up with that! I think our bodies are just haywire with all the hormones. It wouldn't hurt to call your OB if you're concerned though.
