Still No Period 1 Year after Baby & Not Breastfeeding (Page 1)

User Profile
Hi girls,

Well I have still not had a period since I had Chandler. Its officially been an entire year since I had one!! Not complaining about that, however I figured that I would have had one as I am going on 12 weeks since Chandler was born and nothing, not even the inclination that one is going to start. Did anyone else go this long after having a baby, and wasn't breastfeeding?

Thanks,

Mary

Wow. I was breastfeeding and was only period free for about 11 weeks Sad

Could you be pregnant again? I honestly think this situation varies for all women.

I got my first period when Alyvia was maybe... 9 months? 10? It's still very irregular (I'm still breastfeeding) which makes me always play the "am I?" question when it was "late". So for me, breastfeeding definitely affects my period.

I'm not sure though if you're not breastfeeding. Neutral I hope you find some answers soon!

Thanks. My doctor gave me the pill and said it could be while before I start. We have not decided to use the pill. Basically playing the if we get pregnant again its all good. I had a good talk with my doctor and she told me to go right ahead where it took so long to get preg before and that it would be in my interest to just get it done lol I did take a pregnancy test when I was there 2 wks ago and it was neg. So, not pregnant. I am sure if I have not had one by the time I see her again she will be wondering whats up. I just hope it gets back to normal again soon. I had a vaginal infection, and the antibiotics gave me a yeast infection so that was brutal. I thought I was starting my period then as I had some spotting and nothing so I chopped it up to being the infection. Anyways both of those are gone now and I am feeling better thank god.. I just want to have a period and geton a schedule again lol

YAY!

next time you are put on antibiotics, eat yogurt. That can prevent a yeast infection. Works for me anyway.

I did eat yogurt. In fact, I eat it like its going out of style. I always have. All I know is that the infections are gone. I am guessing that I ended up with the Yeast one because I was so close to my period. Who really know. Just glad its here lol

My baby is 16 months, I stopped breastfeeding when baby was 12 months and still no period. The doctor gave me some pills to help me get my period (pills call Duphaston). Took those for 10 days and today I am on day 18 and still no period. If I don�´t get it by day 23 I need to have hormonal tests etc. I am very worried and cannot wait to have a period again!

Great News I got my Period at 3 months and 3 weeks after having my Daughter. So for all you other ladies still waiting give it time and relax. If you just can't wait by all means go to your obgyn. I didn't want to I had one to many Doctor's visits at the end of my pregnancy. But at the 4 month mark I was going to get checked out on my husbands urging, but my period beat me to it. Good Luck to everyone. Let's all enjoy our little blessed gifts Our Babies. :')

one year pp and no period
My baby just turned one, still breastfeeding (but obviously not exclusively), and still no period. I still "look" pregnant, so I keep wondering... uh, is there another one in there?? LOL. But there isn''t. I just have a weird body and weird hormones I guess.

i was wondering what pills were prescribed to you? i am in the same boat (baby born in Oct '09, weaned in May '11, no sign of a period). i am definitely enjoying the period-less freedom, but also wondering when it will return for future family planning as i'm in my mid-30s.
