    Question Low Abdo Pain/No Period

    I'm 12 weeks post natal and have yet to get my period.
    I also have low grade but constant abdominal pain.
    I've had an ultrasound but nothing untoward was picked up.
    Had a round of antibiotics but the pain remains.
    And still no period..
    When did you get your first period post natally?
    And did you experience abdo pain at all?

    Thanks

    Are you b/feeding? If so then there's every likely hood you won't get your period again until you finish. I didn't get mine until nearly 4mths after stopping b/feeding.

    Did you have a c-section? Perhaps your pain could be related to that? Scarring or something?

    I bf my DS until he was 12months but got my period when he was about 6months. About 2 months before period arrived I was getting really bad pain (on and off), went to my gp and she said it was just my body getting prepared to start menstrating again. My mum, who is a naturopath, advised me to start taking angus cactus (blackmores) everyday ( which is fine to take while breastfeeding) and I found that really helped.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for your replies.
    Yes, I thought the pain might be related to scarring from the caesar but had an ultrasound and everything looked okay although I did have a thickening of the endometrium.

    I am not breastfeeding as I didn't want to risk my baby given that I am presently taking medication for mental illness.

    I will definitely check out the angus cactus. Vitamins and minerals (eg. magnesium and Vitamin D) really helped me when I was hit with PND.

    Thanks again.

    Update: it was my body trying to have a period. Body then had normal period and everything's back to normal. Cactus helped immensely. Thank you!
