Why haven't I had my period in 4 years after I gave birth?

Why haven't I had my period in 4 years after I gave birth?

Many reasons: A regular period is dependent on multiple organ and systems working in a coordinated fashion with interplay of various hormones connecting them. Your brain communicates to your ovaries, your ovaries secrete hormones that influence the uterus, and finally the uterus sheds its lining regularly. Any disruptions on any of these levels can cause cessation of periods. See your doctor to get worked up. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

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

Possible: It is possible since there is no method of contraception that doesn't have some failures but it is unlikely. There are several other things that can cause you to miss periods. It would still be advisable to check a pregnancy test. If you do get pregnant after a tubal there is an increased risk of a tubal pregnancy so any pain should be evaluated immediately by a doctor.

Hi i just had a baby 4 months ago, I am 18 days late i had my period twice in january and I have taken 4 test all negative could i be pregnant?

Yes: A woman can become pregnant as soon as about 10 days after giving birth. If you've had negative pregnancy tests, then it sounds like you're not pregnant and the period is late due to hormone changes. If you aren't ready to have another baby right away, you may want to consider 1 or 2 reliable forms of birth control as postpartum periods can be unreliable. Good luck! ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you become sexually active and do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Its been since january 2012 since my last Depo-Provera shot and haven't had a period in 4 weeks. Could I be pregnant?

I stopped my birth control 4 weeks ago and haven't gotten my period yet, I was due 2 days ago.. Is this bad?

I stopped my birth control 4 weeks ago and haven't gotten my period yet, I was due 2 days ago.. Is this bad?

No.: You're describing "post-pill amenorrhea". Because your reproductive system has been relying on artificial hormones for contraception and cycle regulation, the hormones that orchestration the cycle have been "asleep." Your own hormonal system may take a few months to "wake up". BTW, you could ovulate before your period so, if you don't want to get pregnant, use some type of contraception. ...Read more
