my baby is 4months old and i haven't gotten my period


[deleted account]

My baby is 4 months old also and I have not gotten mine either. I stopped breast feeding when he was 10 weeks. My doctor told me to double up on my pack of pills and that when I finish them that I should probably start. We shall see

i didnt get my period back for 6 months after i had my first and second children. It came back after 4 weeks after this one my fourth i was not impressed lol.
If theres any chance you might be pregnant do a test to set your mind at ease but its probably your body adjusting

i'm worried because ive lost a lot of weight and i know that being underweight can take your period away its happened to me before

My son is four months old, I'm breastfeeding and I haven't had a period. The doctor told me at my six week check up that I probably wouldn't have a period for a while since I was strickly breastfeeding. My sister didn't have a period until she stopped breastfeeding completely, her baby was 8 months when she stopped.

I'm breastfeeding and my 1st child I slowed down on breastfeeding when she was 6 months old then I started getting my period and it was irregular. It took my husband and I to get pregnant again 3 years. I'm now breastfeeding and she is also 4 1/2 months and no period. it just depends on your body.

Nope... if you are nursing it will delay things. i nursed my oldest and didn't get my period until she was 5 months old.. I nursed my 2nd for 2 years and got my period back when she was 13 months. I'm nursing my 3rd, my oct baby.. and no period. it varies for every woman as well as every pregnancy. don't jinx yourself though!! lol

Are you breastfeeding?? as that can delay the return of your period as it can delay ovulation, but not in everyone's case. My SIL breastfed until her youngest was just over a year, and didn't get her period until he was nearly 2yrs old. Me, on the other hand, I got mine back exactly 28days after giving birth, and I was breastfeeding then, but I'm still not as perfectly regular as I was.

I think it's just our bodies slowly getting into the swing of things.
