When does menstrual period return after giving birth? I exclusively breastfed for 3 months. Baby is now 19 weeks old and I have not had a period yet.
Haven't had my period yet after delivering. My baby is 3 mo. I'm not pregnant. It's my 2nd child.. Is this ok? Was breastfeeding until 1.5 month..
Menses: The first menstrual cycle after pregnancy is very variable. They can vary from appearing 1 month after delivery to not getting one until the mom has stopped breastfeeding. No cause for concern, but dont underestimate your fertility, good contraception should be used. Just because you dont get a period doesnt mean you can not get pregnant! ...Read more

My son is 6 weeks & 4 days old, He's Bottle fed since birth. Im now taking interest in breastfeeding him but I smoke. Since I smoke is it harmful?
No, it's not harmful: Breastfeeding is helpful in preventing respiratory illnesses in babies who live in homes where there is smoking. Try to smoke as little as possible, which is good for you and your baby. Also try to not smoke in the same room as the baby. It might be difficult to start breastfeeding at 6 weeks. A lactation consultant might be helpful in getting your baby to latch and increasing your milk supply ...Read more
Dark green loose poop since 2 days for 2 month old baby. She is under nan 1 baby formula from birth since I have less breast milk. Is it ok?
Of course!: It is common for women to regain their periods while breast-feeding. It usually happens after the baby has been on a regular feeding schedule for a while or when other foods are introduced into the baby's diet. Usually women make a little less breastmilk when they are menstruating, but most often production is matched with the baby's needs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Are you breast feeding? If so, that may be normal for you. Some 45 year old women go right into menopause after they deliver. If you fail to have a cycle in the next month and you are not breast feeding, see your provider and do a pregnancy test, especially if you are not using contraception. ...Read more

I am pregnant in week 22 and seem time I have baby 1yr old , i didn't stop breat feeding her till now eventhough no.Milk coming ?Is it dangerous
Not necessarily: Think of the process as feeding twins. If the older kid is only there for the comfort & nurturing you may want to try some other nurturing activities to see if the older kid will quit. S/he may reject the breast when baby comes because the new milk flow may startle him.If not breast feed them both. ...Read more

Im still breastfeeding my 2 month old baby however I am now on my second period is this normal? Thought if breastfeeding you don't get periods
Common finding: Breast babies can do a little smear every feed or a onsie filler every 7-10 days. Breast milk is a well designed food source compared to formula, where more debris is left over after processing. Bottle babies usually go at least daily if not more often. If it is soft when they go it is considered ok, even if delayed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
