Ihad my baby a year ago and have only had about 5 periods within this time. I have also just had treatment for abnormal cells on the cervix , is this related or is it all just hormonal????

It can take up to 13 wks to get ur period,and even over a year if you are b___stfeeding.

i have a question my baby is 2weeks old can i start b___stfeeding now

Yes to the lady who asked if she could start b___stfeeding her two week old. Though it could take a few days to stimulate the first let down of milk. I have heard of people b___stfeeding children and still having milk years later. People also b___stfeed children they adopt. You must simply stick with it and buy a fabulous b___st pump. It is completely normal to go up to a year without a period after having a baby, although I would advise seeing your OBGYN under any circ_mstance to rule out any changes that would not be related to the pregancy.

La Leche League is a local organization that you could contact concerning starting lactation at two weeks. They have free lactation consultants that will help you get started. They are also moms that have b___stfed before. It is a free and wonderful organization that I suggest you contact so that you won't have to go at it alone with a two week old. Good luck b___stfeeding. I b___stfed my first baby for two years and I have a four month old b___stfeeding now. I plan to continue with her. It saves so much money on formula and is so easy to not have to fool around with bottles. BUT you are confined to your baby and YOU are the only one to get up at night. The benefits outweigh the obstacles. Good luck.

I had a normal birth almost a yr ago (my babys first birthday in 2 days) and since the birth my periods have come in on time every single month. Thats the first time in my life!!! Before the baby i was having them all over the place - sometimes id bleed for 3 weeks then nothing for 3 months! I just think pregnancy and birth affect everyone differently. Also, from friends and family of mine, ive heard it takes a good while for your body to get back to normal, and therefore your periods too.
