Absolutely. Especially if you're nursing, or started new birth control at your 6 week post partum check. It can take quite a while to get totally back to normal. That being said, you're super fertile in the first several cycles after having a baby, so do take a test if it's possible you may have conceived again. But otherwise I'd say irregularity only three cycles in is almost a given.

Still totally normal, I only mentioned BF and HBC because that would make it even more textbook normal to have irregularity. I mean, yes, pregnancy is always possible if you've been having sex (DD was a condom failure baby actually), but I wouldn't worry too much about it. Your body has just been through so much, it takes time to heal and regulate. You know it takes up to 2 years to get back to normal physically and hormonally, three months is nothing. Pee on a stick if you need the piece of mind, but I guarantee you everyone goes through the "wtf is my body doing?" stage PP while everything adjusts. Irregular cycles are definitely part of that.
