Question: unusual period after c-section birth

 kstudli2005 - Tue Feb 09, 2010 8:10 pm

Hi my name is Karen, I had my first child 9 months ago, I have had unusual periods since then. First off I did not have my period for three months, then however I did have my period the next two months, normal periods which lasted about 5-7 days. I then missed my period for the next three months and had it finally for a total of 10 days after switching birth control pills. It is now five days later and I am cramping severely and have started my period again. Is this normal, and if not any idea why this could be happening. Before I had my son however, I did have regular periods every month, around the same time, and I never missed one.

User avatar Hello,
Childbearing often changes a woman's menstrual cycle and pattern. This would be considered normal fluctuation and I would not be worried. It could result from not ovulating every month but that is not a real problem.

Best wishes.
