    Yes its normal! It takes your body quite a while to get back on track, especially if you've been breastfeeding!! So because of this, remember to be EXTRA careful when having sex because if even you aren't menstrating you can still be ovulating!! It may take a few more months to get back on a normal cycle since you just finished breastfeeding! Good luck!

    Yes it can take up to 3 to 4 cycles for you to go back to normal if your not breast feeding. If you are breast feeding your cycle might be off until you ween the baby. Good Luck!

    Very normal, the worst thing for you to do is worry about it, it can actually prolong your period even more. Just think, no period today, meaning no bloating, no cramps, and no being even more tired with the newborn.

    It can take months to be regular again... if you know you're not pregnant, that's probably all it is.
