Menstrual period after giving birth

Common Questions and Answers about Menstrual period after giving birth


Avatar n tn MY period is still a little off after my son, he's almost 4 months, so it's a little sooner after giving birth for me, but my last period was off and the other 2 were spacedright on time. It takes some time, I would agree that if hte test is negative and you are 2 weeks late, it's probably just your body.
Avatar f tn your are IRREGULAR when it comes to your period. unlike me, im regular, never skipped a month. regardless of giving birth. the cramps thing, just excercise or do sit ups 2weeks or a week before tour period. if you dont know when your period will arrive, just do brisk walking or cardio excercises. :D hope this helps.
Avatar n tn How long is your menstrual period supposed to last after you have just given birth? Ive been on it for about 2 wks and im not sure if this is abnormal?
381667 tn?1200467450 I don't know statistics or anything.. but anytime you have unprotected sex there is a chance you'll get pregnant..I am 10 months older than my sister.. my Mother went in for her 6week check up and was 4 weeks pregnant... it was very hard on her just because her body hadnt' gotten over giving birth or being pregnant yet...
Avatar n tn What could be happening? Is it normal for periods to be a little messed up after giving birth, or could something else be wrong? My doctor is on vacation for a few more weeks so I can't go see her.
Avatar n tn I recently gave birth in October and I have received my first menstrual cycle and I wanted to know is it normal for it to be heavy? Also even after giving birth it wasn't heavy at all.
Avatar n tn i have read articles concerning the return of the menses after birth and it says that you can ovulate before you get your cycle so i guess i am just curious if i should wait to see if it returns or if i should get the pregnancy test. this is all just SO overwhelming.
Avatar f tn More than likely, it's your menstrual. I had stopped bleeding a week after giving birth, spotted some the following week, and two weeks later got my menstrual. According to my OB, alot of people will get their's during the healing process and not realize it. That's why alot of people get preggo like 2.2 seconds after having their first one. LOL.
Avatar f tn It was the normal bleeding after giving birth.
Avatar n tn This is my 7th son. My period has always come back soon after. This is unusual for me. Maybe it's because I'm 38. I'm not sure. I asked my dr. and was told not to worry at this time. I just hope it's not something bad happening. Thanx for your comments.
Avatar n tn How long does it normally take for someone to get their menstrual cycle after giving birth. I thought it was only about 6 weeks.
Avatar n tn hi, i was wondering when i would start to ovulate after giving birth in march the 30th of this year and i had intercourse with a condom after about two weeks with my husband and then there were also times that i chose not to use it, but i have not started my menstrual period yet, but i noticed spotting on may 17th 2006 and sometimes when i wake up early in the morning there is a little spotting there are also times after urinating that i do still have clear liquid discharge comming out of my v
Avatar f tn With my first i didn't get one until 4 weeks after i weaned. I've gone longer with this baby, and just got my first period when she was 8 months old.
182352 tn?1231187010 I had sporadic cycles after giving birth. Before pregnancy I had been very regular every 25 days, after the birth I didn't have a period for 3 months and once I started having them it took about 6 months for me to get back on track. My OB told me that I shouldn't be concerned. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn I mc at 16 weeks no straight explanations dr said it s nothing I done got preg again 10 months later and had another mc at 21 weeks my water broke early went to hosp they put me on bed rest to try to see if they can save the baby at 24 weeks but I ended up giving birth 2days after I started to bleed and had ultrS placenta was living the uterus so I had no choice but to give birth and hope that shr would be alive but unfortu not I have no sickness history and while all those things was going on h
Avatar n tn I found out on March 10th, at 13 weeks, that the baby had stopped developing after about 7 weeks. I hadn't miscarried yet but the baby wasn't alive. I had a D&C on March 12th, and bled for 2 1/2 weeks after the D&C. Then 4 weeks after the D&C, I got my first period (still have it) and it is SO HEAVY. The first couple of days it was so light that I wasn't sure it was a period, and then all of a sudden the flood gates opened. I go through a super tampon in about 1 1/2-2 hours.
172826 tn?1423426556 I have painful periods anyway, but the first year after giving birth each time has been rough on me. Worse off the pill, I even tried a few months back to go off and see. I was rewarded with over 3 weeks of heavy bleeding and clots that pushed my tampons out. Even on the pill I have really bad cramping. After about a year from the birth of my first son it got better, I'm hoping it will do the same for me again, still waiting.
Avatar n tn although it is great to not have a period, it does mess with getting pg since most drs want you to have a period after a m/c before trying again, this is because you could have a higher chance of m/c
Avatar n tn I was just wondering if it was normal to have irregular periods after giving birth? My daughter is 13 months old, and I have had probably 5 periods since she was born. I am due for a pap smear soon, I plan on telling my OB/GYN but I was just curious in the mean time.
Avatar f tn On the flip side, I did need a surgery after giving birth to my daughter last month. I was given a spinal which is very similar to the epidural. I was terrified but it didn't hurt to administer. You feel a prick when they give you lidocaine but then they wait until you're numb to give you the rest of the medicine. I hated it. I reacted badly to it, got the shakes, got nauseated and I've had the spinal headache and backache for a month now.
Avatar n tn It was the first period after a miscarriage...very heavy, almost no cramps, but a lot of lower back kind of felt like early labor...I took codeine for it, and went to sleep.
Avatar n tn They can come just before or during or even after a period. Smoking and alcohol are known to precipitate it and so also stress. Eating small frequent meals helps. Some benefit by taking vitamin supplements and calcium. NSAIDS or non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen also help. Please discuss this with your gynecologist and take for if you are on contraceptive pills then these can aggravate acidity. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn I have had my last period on 20th December. But it last for only 2 days (no visible bleeding after that) usually I'm on a 5 to 6 days cycle. I've read that stress can lead to irregular menstrual cycle. After my periods ended me & my boyfriend got a little crazy (we haven't met since past few months so we couldn't control ourselves) we kissed hugged (I know one cannot get pregnant from kissing or hugging) he fingered me for a few seconds with his hands inside my pants.
Avatar f tn If you get tested and are clear of anything i would say talk to your gyno about going on birth control. There are many options (ie pills, shots, patches, IUD) as this should help regulate the bleeding to once every month for several days as well as regulate the amount you are bleeding. I hope i helped you a little and as i said it is up to you if you would like to take the advise i have given you but either way i do suggest seeing a doctor. Hope everything works out well for you and good luck.
Avatar n tn I have taken micronor a couple of times after giving birth to my two girls, They give it to you while your breast feeding. I think the hormones are lower or something. I really liked it though, I wish I could have stayed on it but for some reason my ob wouldn't let me, so I went on the patch, ortho evra and I really like it too, I had no side effects with either.
