I had a baby 8.5.14 exclusively breastfed. I received Depo-Provera prevera after delivery and didn't receive it again. 4 months pp no period am I pregnant?

I had a baby 8.5.14 exclusively breastfed. I received Depo-Provera prevera after delivery and didn't receive it again. 4 months pp no period am I pregnant?

Need test: There is no way to know without a pregnancy test. Anytime a woman has sex without a form of birth control, there is a possibility of pregnancy. However, the recent pregnancy and Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) use cloud the issue, and a test is needed to know before. ...Read more

Nursing my 9 month old breastfeeding him since birth @3 months my periods returned &now I have missed 3, get bloody discharge but negative pg test.

Irregular periods: It is likely that this is a normal hormonal fluctuation from breastfeeding. But there are many other factors that can delay a menstrual cycle, including travel, stress, weight changes, and medications. If you don't get a cycle for three months in a row, it's worth calling your gyn. The doctor may want to test for hormonal problems, like hypothyroidism, that could affect cycles. ...Read more

I am 7 weeks pregnant and nursing a 6 month old. Should i stop nursing during pregnancy?

I am 7 weeks pregnant and nursing a 6 month old. Should i stop nursing during pregnancy?

Not necessarily: If/when the kid makes short work of feeds it may be an opportunity to stop & get ready for the new one. Weaning before the next one comes along helps diminish the displacement/competition issues. There is also a difference in your milk with early/ mature production. That said, some moms just keep on feeding and add the new one to the rotation. It is all in how you feel. ...Read more

10 Weeks postpartum and exclusively breastfeeding. Had a period at 5 weeks. I'm 5 days late with thicker white dishcharge. Is this pregnancy?

10 Weeks postpartum and exclusively breastfeeding. Had a period at 5 weeks. I'm 5 days late with thicker white dishcharge. Is this pregnancy?

Maybe. Maybe not.: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Im 7 weeks post pregnancy & exclusively breastfeeding. Is it normal to have a period or bleed the first week of taking camila.

Im 7 weeks post pregnancy & exclusively breastfeeding. Is it normal to have a period or bleed the first week of taking camila.

Yes.: Your hormones are all over the place, so almost anything is possible. Use a back up method of birth control for the first month of the pill anyway - don't forget! congratulations on breast feeding - it is the best for your baby. Sometimes it seems hard, but you're doing the right thing - good job. ...Read more
