9 Weeks Postpartum And Still No Menstrual Cycle Is That Normal
2-4 months is normal: After delivering a baby, a woman will not resume menstrual periods for months. The time could be a few or many months. It varies a great deal among women. Often, a non-breastfeeder gets her menses after 2-4 months, a typical breast-feeder has her period after 6-8 months, and the few exclusively breastfeeding moms might go a year without menses. A woman can get pregnant before first menses returns! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more
1 year postpartum menstrual cycle just came back.during menstruating breastmilk supply decreased significantly.how to avoid the same next time?
This is a normal &: inevitable. Breast feeding increases prolactin (the hormone that stimulates breast milk production) & suppresses reproductive hormones. As your baby takes in more calories & nutrients from food sources & less from breastmilk, the opposite occurs. However, you & your baby can still benefit from nursing. Bonding & comfort continue even as milk production wanes. ...Read more
I am 24years old I had a c section and tubal litigation on 11/27.I am now 9 mo postpartum and I haven't had a menstrual since June ! Now I'm lactating?
Unclear question: Did you have periods after child birth and now periods have stopped? You have been breastfeeding the baby for the past 9 months and never had a period since childbirth? You did not breast feed or stopped breast feeding and now your breasts are leaking milk? All of these have different connotations. It would be prudent to see your doctor for an evaluation. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

There : There is a possibility that you ovulated, and with ovulation, there is a chance for pregnancy. The only was to be sure is to take a home pregnancy test or have testing done in your doctor's office. The current recommendations for becoming pregnant after a c-section is approximately 18 months. This time allows the uterus to heal and become strong again. If you do get pregnant before that time, then you are at risk for delivering a premature baby or low birth weight baby, or experincing uterine rupture (most commonly after a trial of vaginal delivery). There are other factors involved in this risk (type of c-sec you had, anemia present after first c-sec.) your doctor will be able to give you a more definitive answer about your individual risk based on these things and others. Good luck. ...Read more
