Hey ladies, maybe you all can shed some light



I had my precious Cora on January 22nd, it has been four months and Ive yet to get a period. My husband and I started having sex again within 4 weeks of childbirth. Sometimes condoms, sometimes not. We never have really used protection so its just common for us not to.



Anyways, I have not had a period since having my baby girl, which when I had my son I had a period within 6 weeks of birth. I have taken multiple pregnancy test that say negative, but is it possible that my hormones are such a wreck that its a false negative repeatedly?



I havent had any breast milk coming out since week 6 post pardum so its not that. What are some other factors that it could be? I do need to lose weight since having my children, and I am, so that could be a possibility? I should add my stomach is a little harder than it should be and im starting to bloat. I like in Moore OK and my doctors office/womens center where I go to my doctor has been blown away from the Tornado so until they set up shop somewhere else thats not an option..

I believe that your hormones are just out of whack. I would test again in about a week. Do you feel any symptoms? Also did you go to Moore regional? My sons doctor was there. :(

Your hormones are probably just still out of whack. Try taking Red Raspberry Leaf to see if it regulates you. 3 in the AM, 3 in the PM.

4 months postpartum, your hormones should be back to normal. My first thought of course would be, it is normal if you are nursing. But since you're not nursing, that's not the answer.



I would be doubtful the weight is causing it. I'm a big girl, and never had issues with my cycle, unless my birth control was doing it.



Are there any other free clinics around you could go to just for a test and possibly see about getting an ultrasound done? It is possible for you to be getting false negatives. What kind of tests have you been using?

Probably, Im hoping they're back up soon so I can go to mine, Ive developed a trust and relationship with her over the years with both my kids and such (small town mentality lol) but I mean obviously I can always just see someone else to at least verify that its not a pregnancy at least. I dont drink or smoke or anything so Im not risking a child, but Im also not taking the precautions in terms of food or taking vitamins to make things better. And my kids walk all over me, literally lol

It can take a year for your hormones to go back to normal. Some women's are more screwed up than others. If she's getting negative time and time again, I'd say it's hormones. 4 months isn't that long.

But only reason behind it, is I never got a positive with DS. I was 16 weeks when I finally found out about him after taking several home tests, so I'm not the most trusting when it comes to home tests.
