    Default Periods after birth?

    Okay so I was just wondering wheather or not having irregular periods after birth was normal? Im a little freaked out now as I am 5 days late. Also I have only menstruated once since giving birth and it was for 9 days, very heavy also.
    I have had intercourse since giving birth so naturally I have the thought im pregnant haha

    From what I've read it's all over the place when it first returns.
    I'm still waiting at almost 7 months PP.
    I'm not looking forward to it's return

    Mine was pretty regular when it returned, but I have heard that it can be quite irregular, so I do think it's fairly normal for some people.

    Depends on a number of things, how old is bub? Are you exclusively breast feeding? It usually takes a couple of cycles to regulate, but I would be taking a preg test.

    Mine were also regular coming back 4.5 weeks after baby was born, even with exclusive breastfeeding. My cycle was longer though, bub is 5 months and I've just got a bfp I would take a test.

    Good luck x
