Cycles all messed up? Irish Twins Mama ♥ 2 kids; Iowa 2147 posts
1st Jan '13

So I had a baby almost three months ago. Got my first period on December 1st. Still haven't gotten one but no positive pregnancy tests. My cycles used to be normal 28/29 days. Ovulated right in the middle.



So now I'm on CD 32 and no period. Is it possible I ovulated way later? I don't know if I even ovulated at all. If I ovulated when I should have, I'd be 17 dpo.



Confused. :l How long does it usually take for cycles to go back to normal?

Are you breastfeeding?



With my daughter I got a period approximately 3 weeks after my bleeding from birth stopped (I spotted for almost the full 6 weeks). Then I didn't get another period until my daughter was 11 months old!

It can take up to a year or so before your cycles are totally normal again. And if you are any kind of birth control that can effect them too. And usually after having a baby your cycles don't always stay the same consistency with timing and such as they were before.
Just have protected sex and you will be fine.
