I can't lose any weight I'm sure cause I haven't had a period yet.I have acne everywhere. Can ya please help!!!!
Are you breastfeeding???? If you are nursing that can delay your period for months. I know it took like 6 months to get a period with my first due to nursing. I do not think anyone can really say when our periods will return after giving birth. I would possibly ask your dr when they think you will possibly get it back. I am not looking forward to that again personally. I am nursing my 4 wk old son now and am also wondering when the dreaded day will come again. Good Luck and Take Care
hi,no i'm not breastfeeding. I just came from the doctor and he gave me some hormones to take,progestrone he said it should jump start my period. I do hope so, I want mine so I can get my body back to normal, I can't even lose weight now.
I had my daugher in Feb. and was unable to breastfeed longer than a few days to due illness, and I panacked when I didn't start my period as soon as I had with my son, with him I started when I was 6 weeks and I was breastfeeding, I didn't finally start tis last time until my daughter was 13 weeks old and I was regular for the two months before I got pregnant again....
My son was born november 6th and I still dont have my period. I hemmoraged at 2 weeks pp and ended up with blood transfusions. I am in the sam boat becasue I have acne and cannot loose weight. I am waiting on blood resullts and a pelvic ultrasond. It is really irritating.
its now 12 weeks for me and still no period. i stopped breast feeding after one and half months. with my first child, i breast fed for 5months and my period returned around 6weeks. can it be normal that a period takes so long to resume with just a month of breastfeeding? Please help
just wanted to add that my pregnancytest was negative and i have not been on any birth controls. i sometimes have cramps that feels like the onset of my period but all i get is some discharge. i also cant seem to lose weight. Dont know if the lack of my period affects weight loss. help please.
