Question: help something is wrong with my period

 fergy - Thu Mar 10, 2005 6:19 pm

I don't know what's going on here with my body. Something is definatly not right. I have 2 beautiful children. My daughter is 4yrs old. My period came back when she was 6mths. My son turned 1 two wks ago, I still have not gotten my period back. I was on the pill but I'm not anymore. I stopped bf in December. Should I be concerned????

User avatar Hi fergy,
Many things can affect the regularity of menstrual cycles other than pregnancy from illness, stress, to hormone imbalances etc. In some women, when oral contraceptives are stopped it may take 3-6 months to resume regular ovulation and menstruation. If you have not had a recent physical exam, I would suggest an evaluation to rule out any anomalies.
