Question: no period after childbirth
|jsw - Mon Sep 12, 2005 6:12 pm||
My son is 8 months olds and I nursed him for 4 months, I have not had my period at all. It has been 4 months. I took a pregnancy test, and I'm not pregnant. I had a pap smear 1 month ago, it came back clear... What is wrong wiith me?

It can take the body quite some time to get back to hormonal balance after childbirth. Were your periods regular before you were pregnant? Have you begun birth control pills recently? Are you having any pain in the abdominal or pelvic region?
So many things can disrupt menstruation, including exercise and stress. Pregnancy, childbirth and the aftermath can do a number on your system. Call your physician and let them know of your concerns.
