For how long I will not get my periods after being pregnant?
Hello, I am a 25 years old female. Can anyone tell me when I will get my period after giving birth to a baby? I am in the third trimester of pregnancy. For how long I will not get my periods after being pregnant? Thank you.
@katy Hello, getting a period after giving birth to the baby depends on the fact that whether you breastfeed or not. You’ll get a period after about six to eight weeks after you give birth if you are not breastfeeding. If you breastfeed, the timing for a period to return can vary. Those who practice exclusive breastfeeding might not have a period the entire time they breastfeed. Women who are breastfeeding don’t get their periods as quickly because of the body’s hormones. When you do start your period again, chances are the first period after delivery won’t be like your periods before you got pregnant. Your body is once again adjusting to menstruation. You may experience cramping that might be stronger or lighter than usual, a flow that seems to stop and start, and increased pain. If anything seems out of the ordinary about your first period after pregnancy, contact your doctor. Till then enjoy this phase. Thanks
