? postpartum menstruation

I am 14 weeks postpartum and I breast fed for two weeks. The bleeding after delivery stopped after 6 weeks as normal, but I'm just wondering if i should have restarted menstruation by now. I've seen lots of different data on the net as to when normal menses should resume but can't be sure which to believe! Also I am experiencing a major lack of libido which i don't know what to do about. I had an ovary and falopian tube removed due to an ovarian cyst at 16, could this effect my hormone levels? I am 29 now.

Hello,

Postpartum amenorrhea is not uncommon, but given you are more than three months beyond your delivery an evaluation is warranted.  

I suggest you see your ob/gyn to have a work up.

Best regards,

Dr. Downing
