Is it normal to have irregular periods after childbirth?

I gave birth 6 months ago and have not had a regular period yet.

Especially if you are breastfeeding, you often do not resume regular periods immediately after childbirth. Remember, however, that you are fertile before you have your first period.

It's totally normal to not have a regular period after childbirth, especially if you are breastfeeding. There is a small possibility, however, that your periods will be drastically different for the rest of your life--childbirth has the potential to throw your body completely out of whack. If irregularities persist, or things get worse, see your doctor.

It is very normal to have irrgular periods after giving birth, and even more so if you are breast feeding. It may take some time for your hormones to get back to normal.

It is perfectly normal to have irregular periods after giving birth to a child, if you are nursing your baby. They will stay irregular as long as you are nursing.

Yes, this is perfectly normal. Your hormones have not gotten back to regular just yet; eat a healthy diet to promote it.
