Breastfeeding period pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Breastfeeding period pregnancy


Avatar f tn I got my period back with my first baby while exclusively breastfeeding at 3 months. I had 3 periods and then got pregnant. My first 3 children are 14.5 months apart. Breastfeeding does not prevent you from getting pregnant or having your period.

10815315 tn?1421910963 I breastfed my son for 16 months,and i went through a period of dropping weight so fast to gaining a little. Somehow during breastfeeding i got into a point where i felt like i would eat alot, ill get hungry breastfeeding my son.
9182722 tn?1403787624 I was very sick when I had my first and after 4wks of persevering and beating myself up over breastfeeding my baby was underweight. I now realise its now how you feed that matters but whether baby is thriving. Facing the same complications this pregnancy I'm just going to go straight to formula feeding because in my situation that is what is best for me and my baby.
Avatar f tn I am totally against breastfeeding. I wasn't breast fed and I came out perfectly fine. Is it really that big of a deal? I thought about pumping but I hear thays time consuming and very painful.
Avatar n tn and I was reading about breastfeeding. I have read in all of my pregnancy books that breastfed babies do have advantages and here are some of them: 1. Breast Milk contains 100 essential ingredients that cannot be duplicated with cows milk. 2. Breast Milk Fights Infection, improves immune system and may offer protection against sids. 3. Breastfeeding appears to slightly increase a child's IQ (possible up until young adulthood) due to the fatty acids that are in it. 4.
Avatar n tn It has been 5 months since i completely stopped feeding him and I still have not had my period. I have taken a few pregnancy tests that all have been negative. Should I be worried or give it some more time?

Then, my hustband and i have sex on november 1, (is it safe?) ....

Avatar n tn I havent gotten my period yet but I have been sexually active again with my husband. Without a missed period to totally give pregnancy away are there any other symptoms I should look for? I didnt have morning sickness or stuff like that much with my other pregnancies. I just went by the missed period and seeing how i havent gotten mine yet...
Avatar f tn My son is 10 months old and I weaned this month from breastfeeding. My period started when my son was 6 months old and its been regular. And this month I weaned and stopped feeding him completely. This month I did not get period yet. Its already 33 days. Usually mine is very regular. Any one have any input? Is it normal that I did not get my period as I stopped breast feeding? Any help is really appreciated.
518733 tn?1333020615 While not impossible it is very unlikely to have your period during the first 6 months after having a baby if you exclusively breastfeed. Breastfeeding does also provide protection against pregnancy while you are exclusively breastfeeding your baby and before you start her on solids. However it is not 100% (no form of contractiption is, and there is a small chance that you could get pregnant, so better to use contraception (talk to your obe) if you really want to be 100%.
5793521 tn?1378046701 I know I should take a test but I honestly don't think I am. Have any of you ladies experienced no period while breastfeeding? any advice? also i am having horrible acne lol and before getting pregnant and during pregnancy I have never experienced so much acne ever!! Could it be due to breastfeeding? with my first child I didnt breastfeed exclusively so this time around things are different.
Avatar f tn I had a baby almost 4 months ago and Im currently breastfeeding. Ever since I gave birth, I have not had a period. Is this normal? Should I see my dr? I also want to try for another baby, is it ok to be breastfeeding while pregnant? Thank you!
Avatar n tn Now I know it's common to not have a period while you're breastfeeding but what about the irregularity of it? That it has come and gone randomnly. I also do not necessarily "feel" like I am pregnant or anything, but I am scared.
Avatar f tn I am trying to ease my mind and figure out how common it is to miss your period after having your period while breastfeeding an infant. I am breastfeeding a 4 month old, I had a period when she was 2 months and 3 months but now I'm a week late. I have taken 3 pts so far and all negative. how big are the chances that I'm pregnant again? I did start exercising over the last month, and I also starting pumping to stock up on breastmilk. Could that cause me to miss my period this month?
Avatar n tn You'll have to wait and see... Periods can be so irregular when you're breast feeding that it's hard to say. I did get pregnant when I was breastfeeding but my son was about 1 year and I'd had my period for 6 mos or so. Good luck with things.
Avatar n tn Since I haven't had a period in almost two years I am not sure if its Pregnancy symptoms or just the start of a period coming back. I have to note that I did spot about 5 days after I stopped breastfeeding for a few hours but absolutely nothing since then. I took a test 8 days ago and it was (-) but something is telling me maybe I should test again. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
1395422 tn?1308019851 Which was in August, and then I had a full period around the same time in September...but I completely missed my period for October. I should have started around the 20th, I experienced some symptoms, such as; cramping, bloating, fatigue, headaches, mood swings...and extra sore nipples (which I don't think I've ever had before) I have never missed a period like that before, they always came like clock work. Is that normal after having a baby, to just miss random periods?
Avatar n tn Now I know it's common to not have a period while you're breastfeeding but what about the irregularity of it? That it has come and gone randomnly. I also do not necessarily "feel" like I am pregnant or anything, but I am scared. I also did take a pregnancy test about 2 days ago (in the morning) and it did come back negative but I also didn't technically pee on it for the recommended 10 seconds.
Avatar f tn Well, once you have your first period, you will have ovulated a couple of weeks before your period, possibly without even knowing it. So yes, you can get pregnant while breastfeeding. Pretty easily too because a lot of people think that you can't....
Avatar n tn Is it normal to start your period when you're breastfeeding and then skip the next one, or is it possible I'm pregnant again (I only had sex once a couple weeks ago but I guess it only takes one time) I'm really hoping that isn't the case, just wanted to know if this has happened to anyone else?
Avatar n tn When do I test when I feel I may be pregnant and I am currently breastfeeding my 5 month old but I have not yet had my first period only spotting about three weeks ago? I have taken 2 pregnancy tests which have both turned up negative. Should I just take this that I am not pregnant or do I have to waite longer and test again?
