No period for 3 years after giving birth,any advice??
Not that i’m complaining! But I find it quite odd that I haven’t had a period since getting pregnant with my first child, which was over 3 years ago, and I still managed to get pregnant again 21 months ago.My Doctor doesn’t seem to know why or when they will start again.Has anyone had anything like this? Do you have any advice?

Have you been breastfeeding this whole time? Many times, you don’t have a period until after you quit breastfeeding.Almost anything is considered normal when it comes to your periods while breastfeeding. All women experience a time of postpartum bleeding following birth which is not considered a menstrual period. If bottle-feeding, most mothers will have their first real period not long after this. Breastfeeding, however, suppresses menstruation at least for a while. For some mothers, there may be an absence of menstruation for weeks, months, and even years while still breastfeeding. Some mothers will even need to completely wean before they see their first period. Others, once their babies begin taking supplemental foods or sleeping longer periods at night, will see the first period. Once menstruation returns it may continue to be irregular during lactation. It’s not uncommon to have a shorter or longer than normal period while breastfeeding. It’s also not abnormal to skip a period or see the first period return and then find that months pass before the next one.When menstruation does return, you should consider yourself fertile and take precautions against pregnancy if desired. Some women consider their first period as their “warning period” that they are now capable of becoming pregnant. However, it IS possible to become pregnant before the first period returns, although quite rare. I hope this helps.
